Burberry is back on the catwalk, two years after the last fashion show in February 2020, with a show in attendance scheduled for next 11 March. The brand, entrusted to the creative helm of Riccardo Tisci, will therefore unveil its autumn / winter 2022-23 collection after the closure of London fashion week and Paris.
Burberry is one of the brands that has chosen an off-schedule moment for the fall / winter 2022-23 season. In recent years Tisci has experimented with different formats for Burberry digital shows. For the spring / summer of last year, for example, he showed the models inside Black Park in Buckinghamshire, in a show that saw the involvement of the German artist Anne Imhof and the musician Eliza Douglas and was the first fashion show to be broadcast live on Twitch. For the next collection, the fall / winter 2021 one, Tisci broadcast a short documentary by the filmmaker Marc Isaacs full of female testimonies.
Burberry was one of the first luxury houses to issue a sustainability bond in September 2020 and has recently refinanced its revolving credit line with a “green” loan, a sustainability-linked loan of approximately 360 million euros, coordinated by Lloyd’s Bank , as part of the luxury maison’s ambition to become “climate positive” by 2040.
Burberry executives believe that the long-term success of the brand depends on creating a carbon-neutral future, and that linking funding sources to sustainable initiatives will help drive this process not just in the luxury industry but at a broader level. cheap. The brand’s “green” path to become “climate positive” includes accelerating the reduction of emissions along its supply chain, to be extended up to 46% by 2030 and net zeroing by 2040, ten years before deadlines set by the Paris Agreement.
