BURBERRY
ADVENTURER AND CITY TRAVELER

Daniel Lee’s third collection for Burberry renewed classic silhouettes with a modern touch. It has updated British classics with new shapes, bold hues and outdoor inspiration. As with Spring/Summer 2024, Lee took inspiration from England’s unique natural environments and combined outdoor appeal with a protective essence that keeps you safe.

VIRTUE
ROMANTIC DIVA
British-Turkish designer Erdem Moralıoğlu is a true romantic; so it’s no surprise that she was the muse of the late Italian opera legend Maria Callas. Erdem researched Diva’s life in depth and was inspired by her on-stage and off-stage silhouettes. It evoked a bold and theatrical celebration of a woman who left an indelible mark on art history, with looks featuring fine embroidery, long leather gloves and opulent jewellery.

J. W. ANDERSON
NEW GENERATION NOSTALGIA

JW Anderson’s reference points were a twisted look at nostalgia and a confluence of intergenerational touchpoints. The collection deals with the psychological examination of dressing. It invites us to look around us, find the beauty in everyday life, and appreciate the most ordinary.

MOLLY GODDARD
MODERN VOLUME

The British fashion designer was inspired by the voluminous evening dresses of the 60s. However, she added a modern touch to them and refused to highlight the tight corsets that women often wore at that time. Instead, he embraced flexibility and convenience; replaced metal corsets with elastic waists to make them more comfortable for modern wearers.

ROKSANDA
ARTISTIC JOURNEY
Roksanda embarks on a journey of tactility, re-imagining original images as a tribute to everyday life. Inspired by Le Corbusier’s artistic journey, the collection brings rich textiles to the stage. Handmade sculptural jewelery reflects the spirit of Le Corbusier’s late works, while tailoring offers a contemporary touch.

SIMONE ROCHA
DARK ROMANCE

Simone Rocha continued her exploration of the corset with a collection focusing on the play of transparency and underwear, inspired by the mourning dresses of Queen Victoria, who wore black for nearly 40 years after losing her husband.
