With a total of no less than 106 looks, Riccardo Tisci's second Burberry show once again presented a variety of styles for the Burberry girl, boy, lady and gentleman. The show was marked by a street footprint (hello, logomania), mixed with the traditional DNA of the British heritage brand. It also featured Tisci's speciality: impeccable outerwear.

Below, we round up the top 5 things to note about the show.

Gigi Hadid

At his Burberry debut, Riccardo Tisci gave Kendall Jenner her first Burberry show; this season, it was Gigi Hadid's turn to grace the catwalk. Wearing a hybrid polo shirt look with a corset and snug sleeves, Gigi walked the runway alongside model veterans and Burberry campaign stars Irina Shayk, Natalia Vodianova and Stella Tennant.

Just like the collection, the show space explored the idea of contrast and perspective. Burberry split its AW19 show into two large rooms: one, a more structured and sophisticated room that was fitted with a dimly-lit runway and wooden panels and seating; the other, a brutalist space lined with metal bars that were scaled by over 100 youths, representing Tisci's vision of inclusivity.

British rapper and Burberry campaign star M.I.A. was behind the show's soundtrack. She, like Tisci, studied at Central Saint Martins in the '90s. The rapper filled the venue with her mix, featuring music of a variety of genres from the '90s to present day — yet another play on contrasts and perspectives at the Burberry show.

On top of the beiges we saw at the last Burberry show, the AW19 collection was injected with a variety of bold colours: green, red, pale blue, orange and brown.

Title Bag

 

Aside from new variations of the TB Bag, the collection also introduced Tisci's second bag for Burberry: the Title bag. Like the mini version that was released two days ago for Burberry's B Series, the Title bag features a refined silhouette and a triple-stud detail.
