BURBERRY PRE-FALL 2022 COLLECTION
Pre-Fall is the first chapter in Riccardo Tisci’s new pre-collection scheme- bringing collections to life.
January 18, 2022
The Burberry Pre-Fall 2022 collection served as a testimony to the neo-liberation era we live in. Deconstructed, gender-neutral, and dressed-in-reverse, these clothes were upside-down in every way: an anarchistic approach to conventional dressing loaded with the logos and brand worship of a nature-friendly post-millennial youth.
“I wanted to explore a different experience bringing my collections to life, so I have decided to open up my pre-collection to a new creative voice each season: someone special to me, who inspires me, and whose unique creativity surrounds me in my personal life,” Riccardo Tisci said in a statement.
The collection felt like a free roam through the heritage of Burberry, hacking up its traditional tropes and filling in the cuts with a nature-centric spirit more hippie than hunter. The radical proposals featured a trench coat reduced into an elongated bib, a midriff-baring mutant cardigan, a business suit topped with a parka topped with a cardigan.
Tisci’s new “British Isles” print was a witty, Brit-y take on the baroque motifs native to the designer’s homeland of Italy where the model was also raised.
