For Riccardo Tisci’s first Burberry show, the industry was set on to see how the new creative director would add his own touch to the brand’s rich heritage. And Tisci did not disappoint. He explored the house’s archives and researched comprehensively about the brand’s storied history. Between Burberry’s British allure and Tisci’s international aesthetics was introduced a collection that was definitely classic but with a streetwear spin.
And in the collection, Tisci revealed an iconic Burberry bag to delight fashion lovers: the TB bag.
A nod to the house’s founder, Thomas Burberry, Riccardo Tisci unveiled the TB bag in the spring/summer 2019 collection, interpreting the initials ‘TB’ as a monogram on the front face. He designed this monogram in collaboration with the English art director and graphic designer Peter Saville.
TB bag is Tisci’s modern take on a classic shoulder bag that stands out, exuding a sense of historical referencing. The elegant design, with two compartments and a zip pocket, features the Thomas Burberry Monogram in polished metal on the flap. It is available in diverse styles, which include shoulder bag, belt bag, and clutch. In addition, the bag is offered in myriad beautiful shades and colorways.
The Luxury Closet relishes the presence of several statement-making TB bags, including the unique, small-sized black one that flaunts a deer motif and an excerpt from William Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona.
But to put under the spotlight, we have picked the one that is quintessentially Burberry!
