Burberry RTW Spring 2020

Riccardo Tisci is thinking big for Burberry, from the supersize scarves flying behind models, pinned to trenches or knotted around waists, to the runway stage, which the designer decorated with giant white speakers. Vast and round, they resembled jet engines, or a Dr. Seuss-style landscape — but instead they blasted out a mix of pop and dubstep by DJ William Djoko.
Great expectations for the brand — and founder Thomas Burberry’s Victorian pioneering spirit — got Tisci all fired up for spring. He looked back to that era, whipping white lace into long, slim dresses or lavish, rippling collars; working corset details into tailored jackets; stretching a trench straight down so that it swept the floor, and creating hand-sketched, painted and collaged animal prints — including a monkey — in a wink to Charles Darwin.
“First we are going to build the identity, and then we’ll develop it. The next steps could be homeware. We’ve already launched perfume and soap, and we even made the music speakers. With time, we’ve matured. We’ve become much more fashion, and we can be lifestyle as well,” said Tisci, adding that he wants Burberry to be about more than a trench and a check.
