Burberry’s new collection has people listening to everyone. During the brand’s spring 2022 womenswear showcase, models such as Rianne Van Rompaey paraded the runway with an extra-large pair of crescent-shaped drop ears. Did the look make Dobby the house elf come true?

Designer Riccardo Tisci has titled his collection “Animal Instinct,” telling Vogue.com: “We were born from animals. We have an animal instinct which is very tense when we are feeling happiness, depression or sadness. Perhaps Tisci was speaking out of personal emotion: he dedicated the collection to his late mother who died in August and explained that he wanted to convey the “same emotional expression that animals transmit through their ears.” Make-up artist Isamaya Ffrench, Burberry’s new global beauty director, credited prosthetist Francesco Fabiani with creating very realistic ears (as much as they could be).

It is more likely that they are Bambi-inspired. Most recently, Tisci posed for the cover of DSection magazine with a first prototype of today’s ears while holding a baby deer. On Instagram, Naomi Campbell commented on “Purity” followed by three heart emojis on the look. Tisci has also long experimented Bambi imagery in his work. Some of his most recognizable pieces at Givenchy included a Bambi neoprene sweatshirt from his fall 2013 collection, later reproduced on bags. Her first show for Burberry featured more deer prints and a button that read, “Why did they kill Bambi?” (possibly a reference to the Sex Pistols song from 1979).
