The Wishlist: The Spring Burberry Edit

The Wishlist: The Spring Burberry Edit

Riccardo Tisci’s debut show for Burberry was one of the most talked-about fashion moments of 2018 with a runway line-up of models that included Stella Tennant, Kendall Jenner and Lily Donaldson. The Italian designer, who made his name with a streetwear-gothic aesthetic at the celebrated French maison, Givenchy, served up a collection that celebrated the whole spectrum of British life. From the prim-and-proper Sloane Ranger look to streetwear that referenced British subculture’s most influential tribes, it was high fashion heritage with a twist. Split into sub-collections that felt at times accessible, at others exclusive, there was nonetheless a pervasive sense of inclusivity – anyone could wear these clothes and claim part of Burberry as their own. To celebrate the launch of the new collection, here are our favourite pieces for spring.

THE KITTEN HEELS

The style set is going wild for the new Burberry logo and monogram, widely hailed as ‘the best thing since sliced bread’ by the media, in typical British fashion. These ankle strap kitten heels are swoon-worthy by anyone’s standards.

THE TEE

There is nothing quite as wearable as a simple logo Tee, and this classic white crew-neck with the name of Burberry emblazoned on the chest is one of the easiest pieces in the collection. Wear with your favourite jeans and a pair of trainers when off-duty, and dress it up with statement black heels come sun-down.

THE SWEATER VEST

The village cricket club meets urban attitude with this traditional Burberry sweater vest. It may look innocent, but styled with patent leather and a crisp white shirt provides a woolly foundation for subversive British style.

THE SILK SCARF

Ah, nothing says ‘Britain’ like a printed silk scarf. This luxurious number is covered in the house’s new monogram, designed by legendary designer and cultural disruptor Peter Saville. Ideal for tying around your head, neck or bag handle. This is England.

THE TARTAN SKIRT

An iconic piece of Burberry clothing, the tartan skirt is reminiscent of school days and trips to the seaside. Wear with black platform boots and a pussy-bow blouse for a look that is both youthful and rebellious. Jolly hockey sticks.
