Burberry has been going through something of a creative renaissance since the appointment of Riccardo Tisci as chief creative officer in 2018. The brand’s Spring/Summer 2022 menswear collection, which was debuted in June, felt like the most clearly-defined expression of Tisci’s vision, imbuing traditional shapes with an athletic, hyper-masculine aesthetic that recalls the desginer’s strongest work for Givenchy.

The latest step in the reimagining of the house is the completion of their newest London store, which sits at No.1 Sloane Street. Like Tisci’s collection, the store is a melding of old and new: Terrazzo tiles and ceramics nestle alongside stainless steel and high-gloss finishes, in a grid-like formation inspired by the brand’s famous house check.

To mark the opening, the architect Vincenzo De Cotiis, who masterminded the store (and who’s best known for his otherworldy, sculptural furniture), sat down to discuss the creative process behind the project, and how he interpreted Burberry’s new era.

Check out the video above, and check out the London store in person – it’s open now.

The brand has been keeping busy elsewhere, too: images just surfaced of their collaboration with Pharrell Williams’ Goodtime Hotel.
