As we all know very well, Ramadan is a beautiful month dedicated to grounding oneself by spending time with family and loved ones. Burberry’s newest Constellations Capsule collection captures this very essence of the Holy Month and the ever-changing harmony of life throughout the year.
The Al Tamimi sisters of Budour, Noor, Sara, and Dana are shown encapsulating the spirit of Ramadan that Burberry successfully delivers in a series of images celebrating sisterhood and family ties wearing the collection.
As Muslims observe the passing of the day to break our fast from sunrise to sunset, the collection offers a palette of contrasting yet complementary shades, reminiscent of this very fact. First is a soft beige representing a hazy daylight due, dark maroon evoking the setting sun and a seamless ombré of navy to cornflower blue representing the transition to evening.
The seasonal collection, designed by fashion genius and Chief Creative Officer, Riccardo Tisci is across the spectrum of womenswear, accessories, and childrenswear and offers prints and patterns as its star of the show. The silk scarves show patterns inspired by the working of the universe and astronomy, further reinterpreted on tie-neck blouses and pleated skirts. The iconic Olympia, Lola and TB bags are reimagined and adorned with patterns of concentric rings, as well as on traditional silk capes and sinuous longline dresses. The Constellations Capsule collection kept in mind the diversity of occasions throughout Ramadan and beyond – from laid-back and relaxed to ostentatious and worthy of a dress-up.
In celebration of the collection, Burberry will offer a series of bespoke pop-ups, housing the full collection in the following locations: The Dubai Mall, Dubai; The Galleria Mall, Abu Dhabi; U Walk, Riyadh and Boulevard, Jeddah from April 15-30.
