Earlier last year, after 12 years at the helm of Givenchy as creative director, Riccardo Tisci announced that he would leave the haute couture house. The surprise came when the movements in fashion led Tisci to sign for the British house.

Gobetti, Burberry’s CEO, praised the signing of the Italian “Riccardo is one of the most talented designers of our time“, he said in a statement following the news. Now together again, Gobetti was previously Givenchy’s president and CEO and was responsible for hiring Tisci for the brand, they just presented a small preview of new Riccardo’s work at Burberry.

Tisci often infuses street aesthetics into everything he proposes, the doubt? the amount of streetwear aesthetic that would be able to impregnate in the Burberry’s sober and classic proposals. Now we have a preview that leaves us a little bit like we were because under the B Classic title we couldn’t expect a big  innovation.
