Burberry has announced that Riccardo Tisci is to join the luxury clothing company as chief creative officer. The Italian designer will replace Christopher Bailey in the role.

Riccardo Tisci previously held the title of creative director at French fashion house Givenchy from 2005 to 2017, where he worked with Marco Gobbetti, then CEO of Givenchy, who joined Burberry as CEO last year.

“Riccardo’s creative vision will reinforce the ambitions we have for Burberry and position the brand firmly in luxury,” Marco commented.

“I am honoured and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new Chief Creative Officer and reuniting with Marco Gobbetti," Riccardo Tisci said. "I have an enormous respect for Burberry’s British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand.”

Tisci is due to start the role at Burberry in March. He will present his first collection for Burberry to the public in September.
