We are witnessing a historic fashion moment coming straight from the luxury fashion house Burberry. The heritage brand just introduced its new logo and monogram. Burberry has been going through some major changes lately and the latest one is another bold move. First, Christopher Bailey stepped out of the fashion house, after 17 years at its helm. In a time when Burberry obsessives still found it hard to imagine Burberry without the legendary Bailey, another legendary designer was announced as the new creative director. Riccardo Tisci, who left Givenchy after 12 years of service joined Burberry as the creative chief officer. Just a few months after taking up the role Tisci revealed a new logo and monogram for Burberry.
In the sea of collaborations between celebrities and popular brands, there is one that stands out. The legendary Riccardo Tisci tapped the iconic Vivienne Westwood for his first Burberry collab. Tisci just won’t stop shaking the world of high fashion. First, he announced that he is leaving Givenchy after 12 years as a leading designer. In an unexpected turn of events, he was then announced as the new creative director of Burberry. Now the designer pulled out another big surprise of his sleeve.
Adwoa Aboah completed her third and final photo series for Burberry. The inspiring model has teamed up with the British luxury fashion house in December last year. Since then she has taken Burberry on locations that are meaningful to her to create a beautiful set of photographs. These projects have been a family affair for the model. She invited the closest members of her family as well as friends to star in the campaigns.
For the first photo project, Adwoa Aboah and the legendary photographer Juergen Teller went to London, where the model grew up. She chose locations that she personally loves and styled the shots. The campaign was full of neon-hued designs that shined in full force against the gray shades of London.
The second campaign was shot in New York, where Adwoa Aboah currently lives. The model once again invited her closest friends and family members to accompany her in the shots. Her sister was also part of this campaign. When it comes to fashion, the accent was on Burberry‘s traditional checks in this project.
For the last photo series, the model and activist decided to take Burberry to her father’s family home in Ghana. Burberry traveled to Accra, the capital of Ghana and even got one of her family members involved in designing for the campaign. Aboah’s aunt, Tina was asked to design the dresses for this photo project. The model brought her a bundle of the signature Burberry fabric so her aunt can make her a dress. Tina was more than excited to design for Burberry.
“I’ve had a week of sleepless nights because I just wanted to get it right. My tailors are amazing and it’s just been wonderful doing something with Adwoa. I’m not going to sleep for months! I’m still dreaming,” Tina shared her excitement.
Adwoa Aboah and female members of her family posed in the gorgeous dresses her aunt designed for Burberry. Among the members who appear in the photo series are her cousin Kensemah Aboah, great aunt Mary Asare, and grandmother Gladys. All of them wear checked traditional dresses. Just like before, the third campaign with Adwoa Aboah for Burberry is shot by Juergen Teller.
This project has a special meaning for the model. She also took it to Instagram to express her pride over the photo series that honor her heritage and home country. Each of the photo series created for Burberry felt personal to Adwoa, but this last one made her very emotional because she had a chance to show the world her family as well as a fresh perspective of contemporary Ghana and the Ghanian style.

Ever since late October 2017 when Christopher Bailey announced his departure from Burberry speculations started circulating. Céline’s Phoebe Philo and Louis Vuitton’s menswear designer Kim Jones were the names most talked about that will replace Bailey. Earlier last year Riccardo Tisci stepped down from Givenchy after 12 years at the helm. Anyway, rumors were that he is about to take a top position at Versace. In an unexpected turn of events, the Italian-born designer will be joining Burberry as a chief creative officer.
The British fashion house got a distinctive identity thanks to the star designer Christopher Bailey. From heritage brand mostly known for its trench coats, Bailey transformed Burberry into a leading ready-to-wear brand. In similar situation was Givenchy when Riccardo Tisci, not very known at that time joined the brand. He managed to turn the fashion house into Beyonce’s go-to brand and one of the celebrity favorites. In fact, no one ever expected that Bailey will step down from Burberry after 17 years and Tisci will leave Givenchy after 12 years of highly-successful work.
The news that Tisci will take over Burberry was even more surprising considering the designer’s experience in couture and red carpet dressing. One of the things that connect Riccardo Tisci with Burberry is his ability to superbly mix streetwear with high fashion. With Burberry’s aspirations to belong “firmly in luxury,” Tisci seems like a natural choice. Another thing that made this unexpected partnership happen is Burberry’s chief executive Marco Gobetti who joined the company on July 5, 2017, after Bailey stepped down from that role. Gobetti has previously worked at Givenchy, from 2004 to 2008 and was the one who hired Riccardo Tisci in the first place. Tisci rose the brand to new heights and the same is expected to happen with his arrival at Burberry.
Christopher Bailey is about to leave Burberry on March, 31. Just a few weeks earlier Riccardo Tisci will get started, on March 12. The designer will show his very first collection for the brand in September 2018. Burberry follows the see-now-buy-now concept which means Tisci’s first project will be the brand’s Fall 2018 lineup. Both designers have very different design aesthetic: Bailey has always been a celebrator of Burberry’s heritage, while Tisci has a darker, more seductive and hedonistic approach to design. It’s almost impossible to decode Tisci’s idea for Burberry at this point. All we can do is hang tight until September and see what the Italian designer has up his sleeve.

It’s an end of an era: After 17 years as a head of Burberry, Christopher Bailey is leaving. The designer presented a vibrant collection full of symbolism at LFW. The colors of the rainbow were everywhere from clothes to accessories in honor of the LGBTQ youth. See the biggest highlights of the show in this short video.

After 10 years as a creative director of Céline, Phoebe Philo is leaving the fashion house. The word about Philo’s departure was out since a while ago, but the designer denied all the rumors. Her last work for Céline will be the Fall 2018 collection, that will showcase in March.
“Working with Céline has been an exceptional experience for me these last 10 years. I am grateful to have worked with an incredibly talented and committed team and I would like to thank everyone along the way who has been part of the collaborations and conversations…it’s been amazing.”- the designer stated.
After her arrival in Céline, Phoebe changed the whole perception of the fashion audience for the brand. She managed to transform it into one of the leading fashion houses with recognizable and trendy aesthetics. Referred to as the “designer who knows what women want”, Philo has her fair share of successes and victories in fashion. She is solely responsible for redefining some of the biggest stereotypes in women’s clothing. Thanks to her innovative approach, she changed so many of our perspectives of what is fashionable and classic. The chic camel coats, work pants and masculine outwear is a part of our everyday life to this extent, all because of Phoebe Philo.
Before Céline, Philo worked 8 years in Chloé, from 1997 to 2006. Phoebe was the creative director of Chloé for five years, since 2001. She took over the leading position in the French fashion house in 2008. Until then, Céline was nothing but a forgotten brand that didn’t rank high in the fashion industry.
Philo grew to be one of the most influential designers thanks to her broad-minded thinking and innovative creations. She has a huge impact on the fashion we know today. Lead by her motto “for women, by a woman”, Phoebe is responsible for many of the trends we can’t live without. Her strongly accented sense of mixing feminine and masculine cuts changed the way women dress. We all followed her immaculate vision of minimalism without even knowing it. That is her biggest power as a designer and a trendsetter. She made the same trends apply to all ages, sizes, and races, which is an achievement worth a lot of praise.
Phoebe’s next move is still a mystery. Every single fashion house will be lucky to have such a genius as a part of their leading team. There is speculation that Philo will be taking over Christopher Bailey’s spot in Burberry. For now, she looks forward to a well-deserved rest from all the craziness going on in the fashion world.
Adwoa Aboah had a stellar year. The young star is a part of a new diverse generation of models with hundreds of fashion shows and successful campaigns behind her this year. In 2017 she also had the honors to grace the debut cover of British Vogue under the helm of Edward Enninful. Just recently she was named Model of the Year at the Fashion Awards, but to round up this year with style Adwoa Aboah has one more thing up her sleeve. The model teamed up with the legendary fashion photographer Juergen Teller on a series of photos to showcase Burberry’s new collection that will hit the stores on December 26.
Teller and Adwoa collaborated on cast, location and the overall stories. Adwoa invited her friends and family to accompany her in the campaign for Burberry. In the photos, you can see the models’ cousins George Husband, Alfie Husband, Richard Theodore-Aboah and Kwame N’Dow, as well as Mae Muller and Montell Martin. The group is photographed along Regent’s Canal in North London.
“It has been a huge honor for me to work with Burberry and Juergen Teller on this inspiring project. My role as both model and artistic director is one I have really enjoyed and embraced. Christopher Bailey is an incredible visionary and it has been an amazing experience to work together with him and Juergen to create this series of stories,” the model says.
Everybody wears Burberry’s recognizable checks that experienced tremendous fame this year thanks to the latest trends that involved a lot of this print. For this collection, Christopher Bailey decided to upgrade this classic print by infusing a pop of neon to it. This is the last collection from the designer since he announced that will leave Burberry after 17 years in the role of creative director for the brand.
The photos for the collaboration are raw and in Juergen Teller’s signature snapshot style. Adwoa Aboah and her friends and family radiate positivity in the photos in sync with Christopher Bailey’s youthful aesthetic. You can see many of Burberry’s recognizable trench coats upgraded with modern street-approved elements.
Bailey obviously prepared Burberry for a smooth transition. Adwoa is one of the most influential models at the moment with her own empowering online platform known as Gurls Talk. Gurls Talk is described as a safe place for young women to discuss things such as mental health, sex, and social media. More photos from the collaboration between Adwoa Aboah and Juergen Teller are expected to drop in 2018.

Another London Fashion Week is coming to an end. After seven successful days of high-end shows, and many Spring 2018 collections, London is ready to wrap it up. High-end fashion houses such as Burberry, Erdem, Versus Versace, Mary Katrantzou presented their latest designs and set new, fresh trends for the following seasons. These brands gathered an impressive number of celebrities that showed off their best looks.
Burberry assembled many famous influencers to watch their show from the front rows. Cara Delevingne was there to support her favorite fashion house. And as expected, she wore plaid, the signature print of the brand. Cara chose a pair of bold red plaid pants and matching sneakers. She paired the look with a black crop-top and black leather jacket.
Kate Moss brought her beautiful daughter Lila Grace for the Topshop event at London Fashion Week. The 14-year-old has inherited her mom’s model genes. This was her first official front-row experience. Lila didn’t miss the chance to make a fashion statement. She wore a pair of check pants and a black leather jacket. Kate stunned in a chic all-black jumpsuit. The stylish duo showed up together with Stella Jones, Mick Jones’s daughter.
The Hadid sisters now took over London, just like they took over New York earlier this month. Bella and Gigi transformed the streets of London into their runway. Gigi opted for a laid-back look. She showed up in casual jeans and a black leather jacket. Bella chose a chicer outfit, flaunting the most fashionable print at the moment. The 20-year-old model rocked a long plaid coat, black dress, and emerald over-the-knee boots. The Hadid duo is getting ready for the next huge show, Gigi’s third collection with Tommy Hilfiger.
From Olivia Palermo, Jourdan Dunn, to Victoria Beckham, take a look at the standout A-lister moments during London Fashion Week.
Burberry Fall 2017 Collection carries a historical story. Unlike Christopher’s previous throwback collection, where he dug deep in history, this time he turned to some recent influences. The creative director found his inspiration in the 2000s fashion and style icons. He brought back the signature Burberry print, the well-known checks. Bailey presented pieces in different variations of the check print. Anyway, the designs were unique and nothing like the previous Burberry’s collections.
The biggest focus in the Fall 2017 Collection is on the outwear. You will find every style of trench coats, capes, cardigans and jackets you need this fall. Bailey thought of the rainy days in England while designing the plastic raincoats. The designer created street style ready contemporary designs. Aside from the warm outwear, the collection offers beautiful multicolored sweaters, mostly paired with knitted skirts.
This time Bailey decided to try a new approach when styling the final looks for the runway show. Instead of doing his famous high-end looks, he asked the models for help. With the incredible popularity of the laid-back and casual styles lately, everyone wants to look like the cool kids from the block. That is how Christopher got the idea to create looks for all who want to wear high fashion but also feel chic and comfortable at the same time.
“We worked on the looks and put them together, but made sure the models felt good in it. We asked them if they wanted those trousers, did they prefer it with this or with that. I was intrigued by everybody wanting everything to be really casual and really broken down. But they loved a special piece. If it felt too done, too refined, too sophisticated it was, ‘Oh, I need a hat with it,’” – Christopher told British Vogue.
The luxury fashion house continues with their “see now, buy now” policy. In other words, if you see anything that you like in the collection, you can buy it the very same moment. That is why Burberry presented a Fall collection during the LFW, with all of the essentials for the upcoming season. Bailey added just a small hint of spring, with the lighter colors used in some of the pieces.
Although no one expected such a casual collection from this luxury brand, it was a huge success with many praises from both the audience and fashion critics. This is Burberry’s way of becoming a more accessible brand and adapting to the biggest fashion trends that are popular at the moment.

Burberry’s The Runway Edit spring 2017 makeup collection is all about the influences of the Burberry February 2017 runway show. Many of the products are about contouring for the look you want in a natural way. The Burberry Runway Edit spring 2017 makeup products are available for purchase now on the Burberry website.
The capsule collection features very cool options for lips and eyes, new shades and options for every makeup style. That seems to be a lot for a capsule collection to pull off, but Burberry managed to do it thanks to Christopher Bailey. Baily, considered to be the imaginative force for the Burberry ready-to-wear collection that was inspired by sculptor and artist Henry Moore. The color palettes are strong with shades that are easily translatable to every day and evening looks.
Burberry’s new Runway Edit makeup collection shows off the magic that can be done with nudes and muted colors as well as shimmering golds, creating an illusion of the fullness you want in some areas along with the sleek and designed versions you want to try. Even the ‘enhanced natural’ appearance can be created using the products in this capsule collection.
Burberry Lip Color Contour ($31.00)
Creating a fuller and more naturally plump looking lip is one of the mainstays of this capsule collection and these nude pens are an integral part of that process. The design of these pens utilizes the weightless 6-hour formula to create a soft shadow near the lip line to promote the illusion of fuller, plumper lips. The formula in the pen is hydrating and designed to offer no less than 6 hours of comfortable wear and easy application thanks to its domed tip. Each pen can also function as a 6-hour lip primer.
Burberry Runway Nails Set ($69.00)
Burberry has all beauty bases covered with the Runway Edit capsule collection and the three new high-shine nail polish options that were inspired by the adjoining fashion collection. Each nail polish works with the patterns and styles shown on the Burberry runway in February. Sky Blue, Indigo, and Mist Grey are the new colors included in this set.
Burberry Lip Velvet Lipstick ($35.00)
The popularity of matte lipstick does not seem to be going anywhere, and as someone who loves the matte look I am ecstatic about the Burberry Lip Velvet lipstick in Bright Plum. The matte formula is amazing but the depth of the pigments is what really sets this lipstick apart. The newest shade, a rich well-rounded plum color, is the top pick.
Burberry Liquid Lip Velvet ($34.00)
Coming in Fawn, the Liquid Lip Velvet is a whipped matte lipstick that is completely dreamy. The texture thanks to it being whipped is comfortable to wear with the ideal matte finish and an easy to use applicator.
Burberry Kisses Lipstick ($34.00)
For those who love a semi sheer lipstick, the Burberry Kisses lipstick definitely provides that effect. The formula is buildable, giving you the color deposit that you want and need regardless of whether that amount changes every day. The shades are true, and the actual lipstick is very lightweight. The new Runway Edit shade – Tulip Pink No. 09 is the frontrunner.
Burberry Kisses Gloss ($29.00)
The Burberry Kisses Gloss in Tulip Pink is designed to be comfortable to wear, meaning it is not sticky or feels like it is slipping regardless of the temp or how long you have been wearing it. The lip-gloss is hydrating and comfortable with a rich, true color with a seriously respectable shine.
Burberry Full Kisses ($30.00)
This is a rich color-depositing, long-lasting full-coverage lipstick that creates a fuller looking lip every time. Thankfully, the new shade is a stunning nude color that will work on a variety of skin tones, even if it doesn’t exactly look like a ‘nude’ on each one. The color Nude Beige is the one you need to emulate the runway looks of the models.
Burberry Eye Colour Silk ($29.50)
Burberry’s eyeshadow compacts always look so beautiful, and the two new color silk powder options (Stone Blue and Nickel) are stunning, easy to blend and ultra smooth. The application can be done wet or dry and either way creates an ideal final product. For two rather low-key, stone-inspired shades, the color deposit is amazing.
Burberry Eye Color Cream ($30.00)
Now there is an amazing color option added to the Burberry Eye Color Cream options called Sheer Gold No. 96. The shade is warm and light reflecting and easy to apply and builds on when needed thanks to the creamy formula. Each eye color cream can be applied with your preferred method.
Burberry Eye Colour Contour ($29.50)
This product contour offers a nearly mistake-proof pen to help you create your ideal eye look. Smoky eyes, sculpted eyes, Instagram looks, all of these are easier to achieve with the eye color contour that is easy to use thanks not only to the pen style, but also the smooth formula that comes in three different shades.
• Navy No.120
• Almond No.104
• Natural No.100
Burberry Effortless Kohl Eyeliner ($33.00)
Coming in Stone, the long-lasting and waterproof Burberry Effortless Kohl Eyeliner can be added to your makeup bag. This is the liner that gives precise control to define your eyes. The new shade is a nude color that has a decent amount of shimmer to it.
Burberry Effortless Blendable Kohl ($30.00)
Burberry’s effortless blendable kohl is a well-pigmented crayon that can be smudged or blended easily to achieve the right look. The Pearl Grey color is labeled as a multi-use crayon and can be used as a kohl, liner or smudgeable smokey eye liner.
