Luxury British fashion house Burberry has appointed Daniel Lee as their new chief creative officer, replacing Riccardo Tisci who stepped down after showcasing his last runway show for the brand at London Fashion Week on Monday.
Lee was previously with Bottega Veneta, where he spent three years as creative director. He abruptly departed the Italian brand in 2021, sparking rumours then that he might be joining Burberry next. At the time, both parties said that going separate ways was agreed upon and a joint decision.
According to Reuters, Lee was born in Yorkshire where Burberry manufactures their world renowned trench coats, and is excited to join the brand and build on Tisci’s legacy.
