It was announced last night that Riccardo Tisci will be leaving Givenchy and is replacing Christopher Bailey as Burberry’s creative officer. In a statement he said, “I am honoured and delighted to be joining Burberry as its new chief creative officer and reuniting with Marco Gobbetti. I have an enormous respect for Burberry’s British heritage and global appeal and I am excited about the potential of this exceptional brand.”
Despite his excitement, however, some netizens have posted violent reactions to this switch.

One even predicted how Burberry’s primary market might not be too happy with the audience that Riccardo caters to.

Pau thinks that Burberry made a wrong move with their decision.
if you thought Burberry could not dig themselves deeper into the mess they’re already in, Ricardo Tisci is put in as CD. 🤷🏻♂️
