AW Pre Collection

Assessing Riccardo Tisci’s pre-fall collection at Burberry is as tough a job as curating and designing it in the first place. I see a flick of a navigational map, patch work, ornithological prints. It’s elegant, classic and country chic all in the same breadth. 

When Tisci’s was announced as Burberry’s chief creative officer, in March 2018, he promised to expand and develop the brand’s evening-wear collection. 

“I am honoured and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new chief creative officer,” explains Tisci, “and reuniting with Marco Gobbetti, who served as CEO at Givenchy from 2004 to 2008. I have an enormous respect for Burberry’s British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand”.

Fast forward two years, Burberry suits and evening attire are now the red carpet staple and their female repertoire is a set piece for stylists across the globe. But what does the eminent Tisci have in store for a post-lockdown Autumn/Winter?
