The first creative TOTAL abandons what was his home for almost two decades.
Although from the house they report that they will have him until 2018, the creative genius of the legendary Burberry house, Christopher Bailey, leaves the firm after seventeen years. Some information places him outside the company in March 2018, but Burberry says he will be with them until December of the same year. In any case a bad news for the British brand.
Since the company say it is a pity not to be able to count on him soon since his arrival, the firm underwent a significant transformation back in 2001. Without doubt, the hand of Christopher is in each of the steps, well marked, that They have given during that time. However, they affirm that their march represents a challenge and a great opportunity for the teams that remain, as well as for partners and shareholders. Although this seems more a disgusted assertion.
Bailey, meanwhile, has spared no praise for what will cease to be his home next year and the teams and professionals with whom he has shared more than hours of work, also affirming that the best days of Burberry are yet to come ; another phrase “polite” for a goodbye, perhaps necessary, but painful.
The name dance for Bailey’s succession has started and promises to be fun. In fact, it already sounds the name of Phoebe Philo, still a designer of Celine. The company denies, at the moment, that news.
In any case, we are already waiting for what will be the drift of the famous London house. We are sure that whoever comes, will respect, as Bailey did, the elemntos referents of the brand as scarves or mythical raincoats. And that they know how to transmit in their new collections, the typical British signs of Burberry such as pop, fashion and cinema.
