So sterile, boring and straight. Showing all those hetero couples right after the super proudly gay clothes from last collection is quite weird.
Not so interested to be honest.
After the mess that was the last collection, it's good to comeback to the classics.
I find this good. I wonder if the September collection will be see-now-buy-now as the previous ones.
About the straight/gay thing, i don't think it's really an issue here. Riccardo doesn't have to prove to anyone at this point that he is an advocate for diversity or for the LGBTQ community. He is not Stefano Gabbana! Can we chill?
The accessories look very promising. Not shocked to see less plaid.
What does 'curate' (such an overrated word) even mean in this case? Styled??? I like the proportions on the women, but that's it. Also, not enough to keep them relevant until he shows because we can get this from other brands on a regular basis.
Well it wasn't designed by him so there's not much to judge. I do love the presentation. Great styling, casting and gorgeous pictures. I hope he follows this aesthetic, modern and elegant like in his peak collections at Givenchy.
Don't really understand why Nicole even made this straight couple criticism. Obviously it was just a (clever) way to show the womenswear and menswear together. I find it way more problematic a straight woman trying to shame a gay men for not booking a gay couple or slapping a rainbow print on clothes. There's way more effective ways to celebrate LGBT.
Very pretty and tailored. Such a refreshing concept in this day of one-size-fits-all and forced irony of ugly-and-plain-but-ridiculously-expensive trash.
Subtle details like the extra length on the coats to give a sweeping, romantic and dramatic flow; the slits that button on the side of coats and skirts; and the return of a timeless and grown-up silhouette are hopefully the shape of where Riccardo is heading this brand. The men’s suede trench is so tempting…
And a gorgeous presentation that’s romantic and so straightforward practical (coupling menswear and womenswear). Who care what Niole has to say: It's OK to not always force diversity at every turn. Sheesh.
Thanks marc for the pics.
Despite the fact that Riccardo did not design these specific pieces, there really is a lot of promise here knowing that he did give his final stamp on this lookbook.
I like how classic it looks. It's a refreshing look and concept after years of sloppy design from everyone in the industry. The suede trench looks are especially good looking...and I love the bare leg with the classy and timeless stiletto.
I hope Riccardo pursues this direction and feels inspired and comfortable exploring this more grown up, classic and less street aesthetic. If that's where he goes, I'm very open to his Burberry.
If we start seeing kaleidoscope, digitally engineered Burberry plaid, though, I may have to eat my words haha
It looks very sophisticated and modern. Givenchy was always the perfect mix of young and sophisticated, any age could wear it. I expect that to continue with Burberry. I’m very excited for his debut show, especially the menswear. As a man with a more muscular build I always looked to Givenchy. Not all of us have Hedi Boy bodies!
Would have been great if I hadn't seen those two giant tartan monstrosities but it still looks promising. The images are beautiful though, a very simple idea but executed well.
This feels like when nicolas ghesquiere took over Vuitton. Very fresh and classic. Obviously there is no design here. But the styling is very nice. Makes me want to wear it.
I know this would not be a popular opinion but I hope that Riccardo, much like Nicolas, will use Burberry as a way to challenge his aesthetic. Burberry much like Vuitton is very commercial and it will be interesting to see him work for something where commerce comes before creativity while still adding a touch of depth in it.
I see Burberry for him like a transition. At the end, I can really see him doing his own thing or take over another house with a Couture heritage and a much more deep vocabulary ( maybe Versace).
There’s this thing about «*strangers*» vision of a particular culture that i’ve always loved: British or American people’s vision of Parisian chic, American’s vision of Italian’s sexiness, French people's vision of Italian chic....
I can see Riccardo doing something that he hasn’t explored that much at Givenchy: the formality of bourgeois dressing.
I’m really excited!
When I first went through the lookbook I thought Riccardo designed the clothes and wanted a clean, minimal approach to Burberry for Resort, so I guess that's a good thing. You can tell that there's a change in the aesthetic since Bailey's days, even though these staples were designed by the team - the presentation is very romantic without feeling gimmicky (agreed that the couples are heterosexual because the idea behind it is to show the menswear and womenswear next to each other, not to make a point about sexuality), I like the inclusion of the classic alligator stiletto, the jeans fit well in the narrative and I don't even mind the large-scale plaid. It's really the DNA of Burberry and a lot of people (I know, right) want to wear it for the status, so it's impossible to not to include it no matter who helms the brand.
Exactly! Now a days people just go on fishing expeditions to get offended. The common trope is "cultural appropriation", well fashion has always been about cultural appropriation lol.
Its decent nothing spectacular but I will reserve judgement till his full show.
Department store look. So boring!
