Burberry has appointed Riccardo Tisci as its chief creative officer, effective March 12. Tisci, a critically acclaimed designer with expertise across womenswear, menswear, leather goods and accessories, will direct all Burberry collections and present his first for the brand in September. He will be based at Burberry's headquarters in London.

Tisci will join Burberry after more than a decade at Givenchy, where he was the creative director from 2005 to 2017.

"I am delighted that Tisci is joining Burberry as chief creative officer. Tisci is one of the most talented designers of our time. His designs have an elegance that is contemporary and his skill in blending streetwear with high fashion is highly relevant to today's luxury consumer. Tisci's creative vision will reinforce the ambitions we have for Burberry and position the brand firmly in luxury," Marco Gobbetti, CEO of Burberry said.

"I am honoured and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new chief creative officer and reuniting with Marco Gobbetti. I have an enormous respect for Burberry's British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand," said Tisci. (RR)
