Riccardo Tisci to step down as Burberry chief creative officer
Burberry’s chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci is to step down from his role at the end of this month.
He will be succeeded by former Bottega Veneta creative director Daniel Lee, who will join Burberry on 3 October.
The luxury brand said Tisci has decided to leave the business after almost five years during which time he has spearheaded Burberry’s creative transformation.
This has included introducing a new visual identity and reviving the Thomas Burberry Monogram, as well as revamping the brand’s product offer to attract a younger, more diverse and fashion-forward customer base.
Tisci’s spring/summer 2023 collection, which was presented this week in London, was his last for Burberry.
Jonathan Akeroyd, Burberry chief executive, said: “Riccardo has played a pivotal role in repositioning Burberry. He has enhanced our creative language, modernised and elevated our product offer and brought a new generation of luxury customers to our brand. On behalf of everyone at Burberry, I would like to thank him for his creative leadership and wish him the very best for the future.”
Gerry Murphy, Burberry chair, added: “The board and I are grateful to Riccardo for his inspiration for Burberry’s transformation. We will build on this creative platform during the next phase of Burberry’s evolution under Jonathan’s leadership.”
Last week Burberry announced that Julie Brown will be stepping down as chief operating and financial officer at the close of the company’s financial year on 1 April 2023.
