by Britton Litow

Burberry has named Riccardo Tisci their new chief creative officer.

The former Givenchy golden boy has just become responsible for all the British brand's mens and womenswear collections, along with accessories. Tisci was the creative director at France's Givenchy from 2005 to 2017, helping make the brand the success it is today. Burberry is looking for a turnaround and with Tisci's creative direction, what he does with their iconic plaid ways is eagerly anticipated.
