The trench coat

What better way to open a Burberry show than with the most iconic piece in the  brand's history? Worn by the German model Sophia Roetz, Tisci's version of the trench coat version came with a chocolate-tone belt which was seen throughout the entire collection.

The color of the collection: beige

The first 44 looks were in a variety of the beige tones that Tisci loves so much. For summer 2019, many neutrals including caramel, nude, off white and black appeared, while pops of orange, red and mint punctuated the collection.

The men's line

Presenting both a mens and women's collection in one show, Tisci's collection for men featured a combination of suits and street looks with a sports footprint and the ample silhouettes already known by the designer's fans.

Utility accessories

Umbrella bags and oversized raincoats are key - perfect for moments of quintessentially British, inclement weather.

The counter-culture

The women's show started ladylike, but soon turned into what we knew from the designer student of Central Saint Martins in the 90s. Dressed with mix of prints, graphic tees and punk references, the look was distinctly youthful.

The soundtrack

Robert Del Naja, from the band Massive Attack, created the music for the show. Tisci revealed in his Instagram that Del Naja was a great influence during his career as a student in London. "Massive Attack has had a huge influence on me throughout life. I discovered the band when I was a student here in London and when I started planning my first show for Burberry I knew I had to work with them to rescue the sounds that inspired me so much. "

 

The animal print

After the announcement that Burberry would no longer be using fur, Burberry's leopards, dalmatians and cows were fabulously faux.

The evening looks

To close the show, some of what Tisci knows how to do really, really well: dresses, tops and pants for the night - all in black. Adorned with gold fringes or chains, we loved it all.
