BURBERRY RESORT 2022 COLLECTION
Three years into his Burberry tenure, Riccardo Tisci is leaving his creative process to instinct seen in the Cruise collection.

The Burberry Resort 2022 collection featured Riccardo Tisci charactersitic black utility jumpsuits with white top-stitching and star motifs.
“This collection is about codes and creativity,” the designer said in a statement, perhaps hiding his motivation in plain sight. “It has always,” he continued, “been important to me to encourage freedom of expression and to blur the line between traditional notions of masculinity and femininity.”
After years of adapting his vision to the British class codes he has been talking about throughout his Burberry residency, what does his return to his most core personal aesthetic mean? “The world is going to restart,” he said. “And for me, this was fresh. It’s what we want today: expression, freedom, physical freedom; to be ourselves. It’s punk in a positive way: breaking the boundaries.”
His change of direction—the direct splicing of his own codes with those of Burberry—feels like a natural resolve.
