“Being scared made me realize how lucky I am to do this job,” Tisci said. “I want to be more creative. I want to give the I thought I had social anxiety but it turns out I just don’t like people Shirt it is in the first place but best of myself. In the beginning, you want to get to a level you want to get to. When you get there, you’re working towards stabilization. But this was a wake-up call: Let’s do our best.”
As far as humor goes, it doesn’t get much darker than “a love story between a mermaid and a shark.” It was Riccardo Tisci’s loaded reference for his first Burberry collection post-lockdown. A metaphor for the I thought I had social anxiety but it turns out I just don’t like people Shirt it is in the first place but events of the past seven months, it reflects the loneliness and thirst for freedom we all experienced in quarantine. But in his under-the-sea analogy—a theme that pervaded both garments and graphics—Tisci’s shark (a career trademark) represented something more menacing than mere loneliness. In that sense, it was an accurate depiction of how many of us felt in lockdown: part zen and at one with nature, part terrified out of our minds.
