Burberry’s new Artistic Director Riccardo Tisci has launched his first collection for the brand.

May 21, 2018


The Burberry Resort 2019 collection called, ‘B Classic’ features pieces that were made by the in-house team with Riccardo Tisci styling the pieces, focusing on Burberry essentials. The season includes the iconic checkered prints, kilts and capes.

“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 honor 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,” Tisci says about the collection.

Tisci “curated” the pieces and styled them on the men and women paired off in these eight photos. The collection is designed to keep Burberry in the conversation until Tisci’s official runway debut at London Fashion Week, and to allude to a new aesthetic vision for the house under the Italian designer.

While the models are fairly androgynous and the styling emphasizes the gender flexibility of the Burberry codes. Clothes- and accessory-wise, meanwhile, these looks are indeed as classic as anything Tisci touches is likely to get. The logo, another streetwear staple, was downplayed here, but Tisci gave a nod to a supersize version of the house signature check. Elsewhere, the kilt-jeans combo looked like signature Tisci.
