From the house that essentially invented the military trench and soldierly chic, a pre-fall 2021 collection devoted to uniforms for the great outdoors.

He loves a man, or woman, in uniform, does Burberry’s designer Riccardo Tisci, who come to think of it holds the position of chief creative officer of the UK mega brand.
For next autumn, Tisci’s territorial army will march out in excellently cut khaki pants and shirts, finished with diagonal shards of fabric; sexy abstract floral cocktails; corseted dresses for more seductive country house clinches; and Riccardo’s signature drainpipe pants with cut-out ankles.
While his chaps will go on maneuvers in shearling-lined flak jackets; sleek camel hair coats topped by hunting vests; or big badass copper and tobacco check jumpsuits.
When the going gets tough in weekend in the Berkshires or Gloucestershire, they will throw on great down jackets and puffers in paneled floral prints; or parkas trimmed in the house’s signature plaid.

“This is my uniform for the outdoors. My love for all the contrasting elements of nature has been explored and reflected throughout this collection, combining the romance and beauty of nature with utility and practicality. I have been inspired by the rich heritage of traditional British dress codes and given them a fresh perspective: tempering camouflage prints to blend harmoniously within natural environments, combining them with structured tailoring and romantic florals, broderie anglaise details and references to the animal kingdom. This collection is about mirroring the natural environments within its dynamic prints, colors and textures,” explained the Italian-born, but London-based, Tisci.
