An ode to our founder Thomas Burberry. An elegant set of interlocked TB initials signify our storied past as well as our contemporary future.
On his appointment at Burberry, Riccardo Tisci discovered a selection of 20th-century TB logo motifs in the Burberry archive. Evoking the spirit of our founder, they were the inspiration for our new Monogram.
Affectionately known as ‘Old Tom’, Thomas Burberry was born in 1835, founding Burberry at just 21 years old. Regarded as an innovative visionary, he created gabardine – the iconic fabric of our Heritage trench coats.
Tisci collaborated with iconic British graphic designer Peter Saville to create the Monogram. The Thomas Burberry Monogram appears throughout Riccardo Tisci's collections for Burberry, seamlessly celebrating our heritage through a distinctly modern lens and establishing a new house code that will endure.
