“I want to sustain the Burberry heritage, but I also want to go with the times, with modernity,” says Riccardo Tisci in the February 2019 issue of British Vogue. “I want people to come to Burberry and buy a beautiful trench, a beautiful car coat, a beautiful suit, a beautiful evening dress, beautiful trainers. Not just one product; I want to make it more open, more democratic.” These pronouncements already have been given voice during Tisci’s creative tenure at Burberry, which will mark a year in March. The product drops, not to mention the monogram redesign have caught the eye for Burberry, but the cachet that Tisci brings to all his work cannot be overstated. Burberry has long been luxury on a grand scale, but under Tisci’s direction that luxury now has a point of view. Bringing this vision to life in the latest British Vogue in a feature by Willy Vanderperre are Anok Yai and Claudia Lavender, both of whom walked for Tisci in September.
