What Could Be Next for Riccardo Tisci After Burberry?

What Could Be Next for Riccardo Tisci After Burberry?

LONDON — Burberry’s spring 2023 show in London on Monday afternoon opened the rumor mill amongst industry showgoers concerning the way forward for chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci on the British heritage brand.

The corporate which is 100% quoted on the London Stock Exchange, has not addressed any of the brewing speculation. 

Tisci’s tenure has been the topic of speculation for the past yr along with his contract coming to an end in March 2023.

The Italian designer joined Burberry in March 2018, where he amped up the quantity on the home monogram; TB logos, and introduced his starlet friends akin to Kanye West, Marina Abramović and Nicki Minaj to the brand.

Tisci, a buzzy designer who made a reputation for himself at Givenchy from 2005 to 2017 as creative director, has not been capable of achieve the identical level of critical success at Burberry.

Nonetheless, some defenders of Tisci contend the British brand, an official supplier to the royal household, has been too stiff in its treatment of him and has controlled his creative potential.

It has been widely anticipated that former Bottega Veneta creative director Daniel Lee is to sign imminently with Burberry, but under a distinct job description to Tisci’s.

A friend and champion of Tisci, then-chief executive officer Marco Gobbetti hired the designer at Givenchy and Burberry. Gobbetti left the corporate in 2021 and joined Salvatore Ferragamo as CEO, where he appointed Maximilian Davis because the Italian brand’s recent creative director in March 2022.

What Tisci needs is a fashion house that understands his sense of wit and penchant for gothicism.

Tisci, who’s an in depth friend of Donatella Versace’s, has been previously linked to the Italian fashion house prior to his position at Burberry. 

In 2015, Versace appeared within the brand’s fall 2015 campaigns and rumors have often circulated about Tisci going under her wing at Versace. But some imagine relatively than solely taking on, a greater idea can be to have the 2 designers in a co-creative directors position like at Prada with Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons.

A fashion house from his native country appears like a safer bet but not all the time. Immediately, there’s a shakeup of recent blood at houses akin to Ferragamo, Bally, Etro and Missoni and these designers’ first efforts during Milan Fashion Week had mixed results.

The probabilities for Tisci are quite a few — he’s a designer trained in womenswear, men’s, couture and accessories. His contact list includes Hollywood stars, athletes, artists and musicians. 

Tisci used to continuously collaborate with Nike while still working at Givenchy and given his close friendship with West, a consultancy gig with Adidas or West’s own brand is just not completely off the cards.
