Burberry Has Named Riccardo Tisci as Its New Chief Creative Officer

A new era for the heritage British fashion house.

Announced by Burberry via Instagram, Riccardo Tisci has just been named as the Chief Creative Officer of the fashion house. The new role will be effective as of March 12, 2018, with Tisci to show his first collection later this year in September. Although rumors were circulating last year that he might be moving to Versace following his decision to step down from his position at Givenchy back in February 2017, it seems that the designer has decided to settle in at at the iconic British establishment.

On his new appointment, Riccardo Tisci comments:

“I am honoured and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new Chief Creative Officer and reuniting with Marco Gobbetti. I have an enormous respect for Burberry’s British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand.”

Burberry’s CEO Marco Gobbetti also says in a press release:

“I am delighted that Riccardo is joining Burberry as Chief Creative Officer. Riccardo is one of the most talented designers of our time. His designs have an elegance that is contemporary and his skill in blending streetwear with high fashion is highly relevant to today’s luxury consumer. Riccardo’s creative vision will reinforce the ambitions we have for Burberry and position the brand firmly in luxury.”

With the recent revival of Burberry thanks to marketing campaigns starring It-girl Adwoa Aboah and a collaboration with streetwear imprint Gosha Rubchinskiy, Tisci is undoubtedly stepping in at an exciting time for the label. We look forward to seeing what the Lombardy-born designer will introduce to Burberry.
