Riccardo Tisci is the new Chief Creative Officer of Burberry
The somewhat unexpected move was announced by Burberry this morning
Tisci holds years of experience in versatile design, from athleisurewear to accessories, couture to sneakers, and has amassed a highly dedicated, cultish following among A-listers and consumers alike. He has collaborated with likes of music industry favourites Jay-Z and Madonna, and is close friends with the Kardashian clan. The fashion world will watch with baited breath to see which direction Tisci's vision will lead the company.
In a statement, Burberry’s new chief executive, Marco Gobbetti, who previously worked alongside Tisci at Givenchy, said: 'Riccardo’s creative vision will reinforce the ambitions we have for Burberry and position the brand firmly in luxury.' Tisci is said to be 'honoured and delighted' by his new position, and will debut his first collection for Burberry in September.
