Italian designer Riccardo Tisci looked to Burberry's Victorian roots for the luxury British brand's latest line, mixing delicate lace with edgy street style for looks aimed at catering for different age groups.

The Burberry creative chief, who has successfully revamped the brand since joining last year, had a star-studded catwalk to unveil the Spring/Summer 2020 line with models strutting down a runway laid out with a Victorian-inspired sound system installation.

Women's silk shirts were long and loose, suits had box pleat or asymmetric skirts - short at the front and long at the back, while blazers were sculpted.

In an Instagram post ahead of the presentation, Burberry said the show had been certified as carbon neutral.
