Every look from Burberry Spring/Summer 2024 – CR Fashion Book

Few fashion houses exist so distinctly, so iconic, in their chosen designs than Burberry. But this is Daniel Lee’s Burberry, and here, tradition is transformative. In the Spring/Summer 2024 collection, the house’s unmistakable archetypes receive bold reimaginings, taking what is typical and turning it on its head.

In his second stint as creative director, Lee dives into the archives, expertly taking Burberry’s brand cues and giving them new life. Take the Prorsum Knight, for example, which dances in a deep shade of royal blue, or Burberry’s new interpretations of the check, seen on fringed cashmere scarves.

The collection is among many things, British, but honors its heritage in a way that isn’t stuffy or too copycat. The prints are exciting, vibrancy giving them a dazzling range of colors from knight blue and sherbert to rhubarb and ivy. In the spirit of the house, Lee keeps things coordinated: every print and every color goes together in a seamless dance, from head to toe. Tops melt into pants, tops give way to dresses that sit beneath them.

The Prince of Wales check – a rather muted classic print – and a pebbled jacquard maintain sophistication but lend themselves to creativity, morphing into whimsical waves at the end of each piece. Here, you know what you’re seeing, but not necessarily — and that’s okay. Familiarity was refreshed.

Drawing on its roots, the Yorkshire designer continued its celebration of all things British by focusing on the outdoors (and accompanying outerwear) across the line. There are trench coats, quilts, bomber jackets, as leather coats feature horse details. Tall horseshoe boots meet printed sneakers, while chunky loafers reveal barbed wire accessories. There are also wells with cardboard prints. Talk about the great outdoors.

For accessories, the collection gave a particularly strong showing. The focus on national fashion archetypes – often body-hugging designs – could perhaps translate into some faltering on the accessories front, but not for Burberry. Returning once again to the power of motifs, Lee constructs a series of bags within the Knight family, distinguished by a horse clip. The Shield Sling bag references the broken check of the Prince of Wales, while the Peg bag is woven in a nod to Burberry’s check. The jewelery also featured a nod to the house’s archives with a deconstructed rendering of the Prorsum knight’s metal armour.

The show itself served as a tribute to a number of things. British wardrobe staples, tried and true Burberry signatures, and even the national landscape that influences the designer’s work. But unlike some homages that risk seeming over the top, the Spring/Summer 2024 show strikes a balance between believing in what works and pushing the envelope. Here, Burberry is traditional, yes, but, tired? never.
