Riccardo Tisci Unveils First Design Under His Namesake Label

Riccardo Tisci offered the primary clue about his plan after Burberry with a custom-made gown for the Ghanaian-British screenwriter and actress Michaela Coel, made for her to attend the London premiere of Marvel’s superhero blockbuster “Black Panther: Wakanda Perpetually” on Thursday.

It marks the primary time in 17 years that he has ever unveiled a design under his namesake label, which he closed before taking up the creative director role at Givenchy in 2005.

Cole wore an all-black matte stretch silk bodysuit with a multi-layered Chantilly lace skirt in a mix of floral and starred designs. She accomplished the look with bespoke black floral lace tights and black sandals, all by Riccardo Tisci

This look was the results of a partnership between Tisci, Cole, and her mother, who has made many dresses for her since her birth, in response to Cole.

She played the Wakandan warrior Aneka within the movie alongside Letitia Wright, Lupita Nyong’o, and Angela Bassett. The 163-minute movie is ready to hit the cinemas on Nov. 11 within the U.S.

Tisci, who served as Burberry’s chief creative officer from 2018 until last month, said when Cole approached him to work together, “we knew this premiere in London – a city so near each of us – can be the perfect moment to bring our conversations to life in a really special way.”

“It felt like the right time to have fun Riccardo Tisci, the home that brought me so many opportunities and which led me to where I’m today,” he added.

Calling Tisci her “amore,” Cole said that “to develop into an element of this moment by which his profession comes full circle is a nourishing experience,” and that his collaboration together with her mother “displays a remarkable confidence and humility in his craft.”

The red carpet moment indicated Tisci may not retire from fashion any time soon — but where he takes his namesake label, and if he’ll tackle one other opportunity at a significant design house, stays to be seen.
