Burberry, the iconic British luxury brand, has launched a new handbag collection called the Rhombi. This collection is part of their Spring/Summer 2022 Womenswear presentation, titled “Animal Instinct,” which is inspired by the power of imagination, dreams, and fantasy.
Riccardo Tisci, Chief Creative Officer of Burberry, has masterfully reconstructed the famed Burberry trench coat and introduced minimalist footwear alongside the Rhombi leather shoulder bag, creating a contemporary and forward-thinking collection for the modern woman.
The Rhombi handbag is crafted from grained leather with smooth leather lining and silver-tone hardware. Made in Italy, it features a zip top closure, one main compartment, and a leather shoulder strap adorned with ring accents. The bag is available in various colors, including dark birch brown and black, with the signature TB cut-out motif adding a touch of sophistication to its design.
The Animal Instinct collection showcases a range of earth tones, such as soft fawn and Burberry beige, as well as pops of bubblegum pink, yellow, and orange in various prints. The collection also features experimental geometric prints on dresses, shirts, and blazers, evoking camouflage and connecting with the abstractness of the natural world.
In addition to the Rhombi handbag, the collection reimagines the iconic Burberry trench coat with volume, raw hems, and exaggerated embellishments. Oversized sleeves and chain-link accessories give the classic gabardine and textural linen cotton a youthful, energetic, and punk rock attitude.
Riccardo Tisci describes the presentation as representing “the freedom of our imaginations: how we dream to come alive.” The collection is dedicated to his mother, Elmerinda, and symbolizes a journey full of new possibilities.
The Rhombi handbag collection is now available for purchase, with prices starting at $1,540. However, customers can take advantage of limited-time offers, such as up to $850 off on handbags and wallets, depending on the total purchase value. The promotion ends on March 20, 2023.
