There are quite a few fashion predictions one can feel confident about making for this year: Veganism and sustainability will continue to be hot-button topics in the industry, everyone will want to wear anything from Valentino/Marine Serre/Paco Rabanne, influencers will continue to influence, hair clips are going to be the new statement earrings, Millennial Pink is here to stay and Burberry’s vintage check will be the most identifiable pattern.
I can feel it already. Riccardo Tisci’s first full runway collection will undoubtedly inspire a number of women to revisit the luxury brand’s offering. The first section of the spring 2018 catwalk, with its sophisticated neutral colour palette and flattering shapes, sealed that deal. However, it’s not the only part of this storied fashion house he has artfully approached since stepping in as chief creative officer last year.
The former creative director of Givenchy has established both a new logo inspired by founder Thomas Burberry and (time would only tell, right?) and reworked the most recognisable style signature of them all: the brand’s icon plaid.
