The inaugural collection from seasoned fashion designer Riccardo Tisci for Burberry has been a long-awaited one. Filled with classic Burberry plaids and twists via his signature stylistic flair, the collection has excited front row icons and fashion enthusiasts alike, providing a forecast for what’s to come in the Tisci era. The pieces exude confidence and sophistication that reveal the future of the house. Standing at the center of the collection is the ever-versatile TB bag. In four styles and various colors, it can be fashioned and worn multiple ways, making it a dynamic piece poised to become a classic. What makes the bag so special is the name behind it: T for Thomas and B for Burberry, the founder of the house’s initials. The logo also graces footwear, silks and other accessories. The TB bag features handpainted edges, adding the artisanal craftsmanship synonymous with the brand’s past.
