Riccardo Tisci Teases His Very First Collection for Burberry
The fashion house’s heritage is honored through “B Classic.”
Ever since Riccardo Tisci was first named as Christopher Bailey‘s successor at Burberry back in March, the world of fashion has been eager to get a glimpse of what’s to come in this new era for the British luxury fashion house. Taking to Instagram, Tisci himself has now offered a teaser of various key looks from Burberry’s forthcoming Spring/Summer 2019 pre-collection.
Dubbed “B Classic,” the program is rife with stunning outerwear that stays true to the heritage label’s hallmark silhouettes and, of course, check pattern. Displayed through moody images of couples with obscured faces, we see items such as wool capes, classic trench coats, quilted jackets, plaid kilts and more. Complementing the range are also selections from the accessories and footwear categories, including an oversized version of the brand’s iconic belt bag.
On the range, Tisci comments:
“I wanted to celebrate the beauty, heritage and legacy that I discovered when I first arrived at Burberry. ‘B Classic’ is an edit that I’ve curated to honour the icons of the House – pieces like the trench coat, the quilted jacket, the car coat, the kilt – which sits at the heart of the SS19 pre collection designed by the fantastic Burberry design team.”
