The first collection of Burberry after the departure of Christopher Bailey
In March 2018, it became known that the place of the creative director of the British fashion house Burberry will take Riccardo Tishi. The designer announced this in his Instagram account, writing: “It is an honor for me to join Burberry as a new creative director and again to work with Marco Gobbetti. I have unlimited respect for the British traditions and heritage of Burberry at the global level and I’m excited about working on the potential of this exceptional brand. “
A month later the Italian designer finally presented his first line for the brand. Capsule collection of Ricardo Tishi decided to demonstrate with the help of Instagram, having published a lukbook. The collection was called B Classic and for the most part contains many variations of trenches.
“I wanted to reflect in my collection the beauty, traditions and heritage of the House, which I learned about when I first came to Burberry. B Classic is my vision of how I imagine the standards of Burberry, “says Riccardo.
All things will be included in the upcoming SS19 collection, developed by the Burberry design team, which includes coats, kilt, trench coats, quilted jackets and ponchos.
Ricardo Tishi before his new appointment worked 12 years in Givenchy. For the brand, the designer created bold and dark, gothic-lined collections. Under his leadership, the fashion house, which embodied the pathos Parisian style, completely changed the vector. Tishi made a bet on sexuality, offered to wear piercings, was one of the first to invite transgender models to his shows and propagandize uncompromising urban romanticism. The army of fans of his work includes the clan Kardashian, Courtney Love and Beyonce and many other celebrities.
For a position in Burberry, he was appointed by Marco Gobetti, executive director of the British fashion house and part-time by his longtime friend from the time in Givenchy.
In the opinion of Shulman, Gobetti had an ulterior motive to bet on Tishi. The designer was one of the first to maintain diversity in fashion, so in a modern climate, Tishi will keep his hand on the pulse and position the brand correctly. In addition, the designer perfectly does stridver, as well as feminine sportswear, can work with the skin. The critic draws parallels with the appointment of Virgil Ablo as the head of the men’s line Louis Vuitton, who also works with street clothes and sees this as a natural tendency.
