“Burberry is a very special place with a magical past and a very bright future. The chapter I have been asked to write in its long history is one that I am incredibly proud of and one that I have decided will culminate in my show on Monday.(…) I would like to thank my teams, past and present, as well as the army of collaborators and friends who have helped me write a chapter that I hope will remain in the spirit of Burberry for years to come.” says Riccardo Tisci.
“Riccardo has played a central role in repositioning Burberry. He has enhanced our creative language, modernized and elevated our product offering and brought a new generation of luxury customers to our brand,” says Jonathan Akeroyd, Burberry’s CEO.
Daniel Lee, previously creative director at Bottega Veneta, is replacing him. A graduate of the prestigious Central Saint Martins, the British designer made his debut at Maison Margiela and Balenciaga, before joining the house of Celine as Director of ready-to-wear in 2012. As creative director of Bottega Veneta from July 2018 to November 2021, Daniel Lee has brought a contemporary vision to the Italian brand. For Burberry, he will present his first collection at London Fashion Week in February 2023.
