Burberry Parts Ways With Riccardo Tisci — Replaces Him With Daniel Lee

Just two days after Burberry held its Spring 2023 show in London on Monday, the brand announced that it would be parting ways with Riccardo Tisci — and replacing him with Daniel Lee as its new Chief Creative Officer.

“Riccardo has played a pivotal role in repositioning Burberry," said Burberry CEO Jonathan Akeroyd in a statement. "He has enhanced our creative language, modernized and elevated our product offer and brought a new generation of luxury customers to our brand.

Tisci's next move could not immediately be learned. He held the top spot at Burberry for five years after a successful stint at Givenchy.

Daniel Lee, meanwhile, has kept a low profile since parting ways with Bottega Veneta at the end of 2021. He'll start on October 3 and be responsible for all Burberry collections. His first collection will debut during London Fashion Week in February 2022.

“Daniel is an exceptional talent with a unique understanding of today’s luxury consumer and a strong record of commercial success, and his appointment reinforces the ambitions we have for Burberry," added Akeroyd. "I am excited about working closely with him and I am confident he will have the impact we are aiming for in this next phase, supported by our talented and experienced teams."
