On September 27, “At the time of midsummer in the UK, the beach has naturally evolved into a gathering place for the creative community, where people from diverse cultural backgrounds meet here and experience simple happiness together. I want to bring this new season of spring and summer collections to this place. The spirit and emotions of reunion and shared joy are vividly expressed.
The new series is inspired by the beach, where people from different cultural backgrounds meet and integrate, and encourages free expression. The vigorous vitality displayed in the collision of restraint and enthusiasm, ingeniously interprets Burberry’s modern style.
The series will explore new senses of body cognition. The free pioneer and pioneering and innovative spirit of the new generation inspires multiple design inspirations, and the courage to accept and show the self-identity of somaesthetics is also the modern force of freedom and relaxation created by Burberry. “

Burberry has always advocated community, coexistence, and the spirit of free exploration, and has always insisted on creating new horizons with creativity.
For the Spring/Summer 2023 collection, Chief Creative Director Riccardo Tisci takes inspiration from the British seaside, abandoning single elements such as cliffs, sand or shells, and focusing on the beach. As a community hub and multicultural melting pot, the beach will connect different worlds and explore the intersection of nature and culture.
Just as the beach can accommodate the multi-faceted society, the new series also tries to explore the concept of multi-dimensional coexistence through clothing, and revive the British style – new energy and historical precipitation, interpersonal privacy and alienation, rough and delicate style, all at the level of consciousness It presents a sensory contradiction and interweaving in the form of external expression.
The changeable weather and British temperament in the UK have created a traditional layered look, which is subtle and restrained. The long skirt silhouette was inspired in part by swimwear’s use of graceful lines. The denim fabric is exposed to the sun, and the Trench windbreaker is rebuilt to create more body space.
The new collection reinterprets British style with fresh perspectives, different situations and new truths: on a summer beach, a black gothic back pacing and whispering; evening dresses are surreal in a timeless elegance ; And the English rose through the thorns, full of fragrance, ushered in a beautiful adventure.
Inspired by the seaside and reimagined in London, the brand’s birthplace, the new collection celebrates the idealism and realism inherent in classic British attitudes.
The Burberry Spring/Summer 2023 show was accompanied by soprano Nadine Sierra and the London Contemporary Orchestra, performing a special composition by Paul Mealor.
The new collection celebrates the body, the beach and the Burberry brand spirit. Men’s and women’s wear fuses the sensual and intellectual – outerwear and pieces inspired by lingerie, swimwear and women’s pajamas are layered with deconstructed elements to create garments that are both decorative and functional.
