Riccardo Tisci’s New Strategy at Burberry (WWD)
Tisci is all about those drops! From the looks of things, his new approach at Burberry will be to constantly drop new capsule collections in order to keep product fresh and relevant. His first runway show for the brand will be this September, with plans for a limited-edition capsule collection to drop at the same time a la Jeremy Scott’s high-kitsch capsules at Moschino. His collaboration with Vivienne Westwood will launch in December, with many more to follow.
“Our go-to-market strategy is about more frequent, smaller deliveries, and it’s a strategy that will continue for now,” said Marco Gobetti, Burberry’s chief executive officer. “If we deliver the full collection right away, you come to the store, see the whole collection and then you don’t really have a reason to come again, unless we can deliver something new. We just need to keep the customer’s attention and keep them engaged with us.”
