Riccardo Tisci might be considered the “King of Streetwear” but it mustn’t be forgotten that he has sublime tailoring skills. Fortunately, he brought these same expert skills with him when he became the new creative director for Burberry. In essence, his first show—the label’s spring 2019 collection—paid tribute to Great Britain. While the womenswear ventured into British bourgeoisie territory, the menswear was an ode to Saville Row. The suits were fitted so excellently that it seemed they were sewn onto the model in the first place. Subsequently, London is also the birthplace of punk fashion (courtesy of Vivienne Westwood) which went in line with Tisci’s own streetwear sensibilities. This led to deconstructed pieces, slogan t-shirts, and Burberry-checked basketball shorts—new elements the label hasn’t seen before in its fruitful history but have the potential to be its new signatures. Will this signal the British brand’s new role as the go-to label for high fashion streetwear aficionados the way Givenchy was before? It seems highly likely!
