Burberry Unleashes Its "Animal Instinct" for SS22 Women's Collection
The presentation features new versions of the house’s trench coat and experimental, abstract prints.
“To me, this presentation really represents the freedom of our imaginations: how we dream to come alive. I wanted to move through a series of immersive spaces, each of them unique and unexpected in their sound, texture and experience,” the house’s chief creative officer shared in a press release. “It’s that idea of flicking between the endless realities and fantasies we have at our fingertips each day. This is for my mother, Elmerinda, and to a journey full of new possibilities.”
Wearing Bambi-like ears, select models in the presentation donned reworked versions of the iconic Burberry trench coat, including designs with voluminous fronts and deconstructed backs to reveal swimwear animated with abstract prints. Elsewhere, signature outerwear pieces arrive in soft fawn and dark biscuit shades featuring exaggerated lapels, chain-link embellishments or raw hems. Other standouts are dressed in geometric and experimental abstract prints, while dresses and shirts boast the “Universal Passport” graphic.
In accessories, the Rhombi bag is a new ellipse-shaped shoulder silhouette born out of the abstract curved prints in the range. Clutch offerings, which all come with an oversized clasp handle, are available in black leather with ring-pierced details or metallic fringing. Meanwhile, the Olympia bag has been revamped and now boasts a crescent curve shape with a circular strap. To further elevate the line, square-toe calf leather sandals are designed with a press-stud T-bar and buckled ankle strap. The footwear style also has an over-the-knee sock boot iteration with an open toe.
