Whether if its aesthetic or retail strategy, Burberry is going through a series of transformation under the leadership of its new Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci, who made his name a byword for fierce, rebellious romanticism during his 12 years tenure at Givenchy.
Just as his debut collection 'Kingdom' indicates, Riccardo is swiftly and steadily building his dynasty at the British legacy house.
And according to the designer himself, the latest Autumn/Winter 2019 Pre-Collection (you may know it as Pre-Fall 2019) is the sequel to his debut collection in September and another chronicle of his exploration inside the Burberry archive.
“I wanted this collection to be a continuation of the story I began to tell in September with my debut Burberry collection.
I’m focusing on establishing our codes through archive prints, house colours, and iconic outerwear while cementing the new themes I set out last season including the Thomas Burberry Monogram, eveningwear and tailoring.”

Whilst Riccardo Tisci's daring, dark romanticism strongly diffuses throughout the sculptural, yet gentle silhouettes and the quirky, whimsical pieces in the collection, we also caught the sight of everything we love about the iconic house – the trenchcoats, trademark check patterns and the honey-beige palettes.
And we think it's safe to say that the designer has gracefully tread on the fine line between Burberry's classical codes and his very own creative vision while reimaging the idea of "British chic".
