Burberry celebrates style of Stella Tennant in latest collection
Supermodel who was closely connected to the label for 25 years described as ‘elegant and punk’
The spirit of British supermodel Stella Tennant is strongly felt in fashion. Burberry, with which Tennant was closely connected for 25 years, celebrated her life and style in their first womenswear collection since her death.
Tennant was “elegant and punk in a way that is very British, and completely authentic in a way that was her own,” said designer Riccardo Tisci in a video call before the show – broadcast on the brand’s website on Wednesday.
As well as starring in Burberry catwalk shows and advertising campaigns, Tennant served as a consultant for the brand, bringing “bits of country house detritus” including a floral bedcover stitched by her mother, as offerings to the design studio. Burberry’s tribute follows that of Chanel, another house with whom Tennant had a long association, who also paid homage to the supermodel’s personal style in a recent collection.
In this Burberry collection pencil skirts and polo necks, sleeveless shift dresses and high heels were worn with bare legs and flat-ironed hair, channelling the lean minimalism of the 1990s, the decade when Tennant rose to fame.
The show, filmed during the last lockdown in the understated luxe interior of the brand’s London flagship store with no audience present, had been due to be shown last week. Burberry, which holds royal warrants as a weatherproofer and as an outfitter, postponed the show until after Prince Philip’s funeral.
“She invented an era,” Tisci said. “She looked incredible but it wasn’t about being outrageous. It might be about putting a beautiful diamond brooch on a man’s suit.”
