Burberry Show S/S 2019, London

Al-Jawad Pike collaborated with Burberry to create the S/S 2019 runway show for Riccardo Tisci’s debut collection at London Fashion Week. The showspace played with themes of intimacy and voyeurism through a labyrinthine construction of interconnecting spaces and moving walls.

A contrasting interior of rich walnut panelled walls, glazed and paper screens and flesh toned carpets and upholstery were set against the light industrial structure of a former Royal mail sorting office. At the start of the show, an opening roof transitioned the space from dark to light as freestanding partitions tracked in to form smaller intimate rooms, through which an elevated runway meandered allowing the audience to experience different scales of space layered with multiple views and perspectives.
