Abstracted botany prints and camouflage set the tone for the Burberry Pre-Fall 2021 collection, embellishing a women’s wardrobe that interpreted the staples of British country dress in delicate silhouettes and fabrication.
“I have been inspired by the rich heritage of traditional British dress codes and given them a fresh perspective,” as he said.
A green quilted coat was feminized with a cape detail, and a cognac-colored shirt was overlaid with lace-like foliage. Cargo trousers with exaggerated straps embodied a casual yet styled city approach to interacting with nature.
“This is my uniform for the outdoors,” Tisci said. “This collection is about mirroring the natural environments within its dynamic prints, colors, and textures.”
He illustrated that approach in graphic and mirrored, almost digitized, takes on camouflage for men, and a rather fairy-tale print that seemed to morph drawings of deer with trees. Some motifs kind of reminded you of the autostereogram books that had a moment in the early 1990s.
