Spotted at the first Riccardo Tisci show for Burberry last September, an exclusive collection of fashion pieces and accessories feature a new monogram. In homage to Thomas Burberry, the founder of the house, this monogram is inspired by the Burberry archives.
“When I started at Burberry, I spent a lot of time in the archives immersing myself in the rich history of the house, and I quickly became interested in Thomas Burberry, who was not just an inventor and innovator, but also a man, a husband and a father.When I saw an image of his initials, the design was so special and modern, that I quickly developed it into a new code for the house. A symbol that embraces not only Burberry’s legacy, but also looks very contemporary. ” – Riccardo Tisci
The line includes T-shirts, satin pants, hoodies, bags, and sneakers. A collection of which Gigi Hadid lends her face. It is merging Burberry’s heritage signature and streetwear accents.
The monogram centers around earth-toned renditions of the interlocking “TB” initials. All of it occasionally interrupted by monochrome stripes. The capsule takes cues from multi-generational staples: The Boy, The Gentleman, The Girl, and The Lady. Each item is a blend of classic craftsmanship and contemporary graphic edge.
