Riccardo Tisci’s Burberry show was a massive real-life event held at London’s Central Hall Westminster, right across from the Houses of Parliament. People stood massed together in the dark, un-ranked, unmasked, shuffling back to give way to Riccardo Tisci’s supermodels, friends, and artist-celebrities as they descended from somewhere high up in the wood-paneled auditorium. Burberry checks and trenches, they climbed up to pose on tables which were set with silver and crystal, as if for a country-house dinner. A hundred-strong choir sang, an orchestra played. For women he ran the gamut of trench-and-check daywear through to grand ballgowns, segueing though deconstructed evening trenchcoats. He said he’d pulled it together by focusing on country waxed and quilted coats, and pulling out the Burberry Prorsum knight on horseback. In a brand as big as this, the demand on a creative director is to keep tons of different people happy, feeding different narratives to groups who know little or nothing about each other.
