It’s that time of the year when September issue covers are beginning to roll out. Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s fledgling editor-in-chief, made sure his very-first made its lasting mark. Slapping an avant-garde-styled Rihanna on the front cover would have been a trite manoeuvre. A sparse-browed Riri, however, has successfully started mass dread over the possible end of thick eyebrows à la nascent Cara Delevingne.
In other news, Burberry also took over last week’s headlines with the unveiling of its new logo and monogram. Mere days later, new chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci’s first threads for the British house were sported by who else but Beyoncé for her On the Run II world tour stop in New Jersey.
Below, catch up on everything you missed in the fashion sphere, as seen through the ’gram.
Behind Burberry’s new logo and monogram
Burberry’s new logo and monogram was unveiled ahead of Tisci’s September debut via printed email exchanges posted on Instagram. The new look was masterminded by the new creative director in collaboration with art director Peter Saville, a legendary art director-graphic artist known for his record sleeves portfolio for Joy Division and New Order at Factory, as well as link-ups with designers like Raf Simons and Paco Rabanne. Monikered the Thomas Burberry monogram after the heritage label’s original founder, the print is an interlacing of Bs and Ts in orange, white and gold. While the fresh logo is a modernised sans-serif that’s predicted to garner new millennial and Gen Z followings for the brand. A new era of Burberry is dawning.
Beyoncé wore the first Burberry piece by Riccardo Tisci
Three days later, Tisci had his first Burberry celebrity moment on the stage of Beyoncé’s On the Run II New Jersey leg. His look for Queen Bey featured a tight-fitting bodysuit, a trench coat slashed short and thigh-skimming boots — all covered in the house’s vintage check pattern.
