THE THOMAS BURBERRY MONOGRAM

2021

In July 2021, we revealed an evolution of our TB Summer Monogram collection, designed by Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci, with a new campaign starring the iconic Naomi Campbell, celebrating the optimism of a new season and the spirit of summer.

Playing on Burberry’s house code of duality, the campaign captured a journey between worlds, fusing the classicism of stills imagery with the modernity of CGI technology.

To bring this campaign to life, Riccardo worked with an exciting creative team including photographer Danko Steiner, stylist Catherine Baba, make-up artist Adam Fleischhauer and hair stylist Jawara, as well as collaborating with visual artist Frederik Heyman to bring the campaign to life in a unique CGI world.

Reimagining Burberry's longstanding heritage of exploration, nature melds with technology on a journey of discovery as the Thomas Burberry Monogram is cast across four new global landscapes, each with its own breathtaking beauty. 

Atop the far-reaching sands of Newgale Beach in South Wales, renowned land artist Jon Foreman builds beautiful Thomas Burberry Monogram rock sculptures with texture and dimension using natural materials in the colourways of the new TB Summer Monogram collection – the coastline becoming his canvas. 

Set against the other-worldly landscape of the Chaka Salt Lake and Wusute in China’s Qinghai Province, paramotors guided by TB Summer Monogram sails swoop over the unique, endless panorama, boldly contrasting with the region’s extraordinary natural beauty. 

Across the horizon of China’s spectacular landscapes of Boao and Wanning in Hainan Province, the TB Summer Monogram floats between the sky and the waves as surfers are lifted by the printed kites. A free-spirited summer sport enhanced by the power of nature. 

The night sky over Taylor Park Reservoir in Colorado, United States, sparkles as drone lights create a giant ‘TB’ motif – reminiscent of nature’s fireflies, created by new technology.  

The Thomas Burberry Monogram is an ode to our founder and a nod to our heritage.

Reinterpreted on the seafront by land artist Sculpt The World, the monogram now brings to life Burberry’s celebration of exploration and the unexpected and our love of the great outdoors.

2020

In July 2020, we introduced our new Thomas Burberry Summer Monogram collection, designed by Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci, through a unique campaign starring Kendall Jenner.

An ode to the fashion house’s founder, Thomas Burberry, the bold interlocking TB initials – created by Riccardo and Peter Saville in 2018 – is refreshed in a larger scale and colour palette of dark beige, azure blue, graphite and cobalt blue with orange accents. 

The Thomas Burberry Summer Monogram campaign captures a journey from reality to fantasy, blending the rawness of real-life capture with the fantasy of CGI technology. Building on the house’s longstanding leadership in digital innovation, the campaign video is set in a dreamlike CGI geometric world inspired by skateparks and swimming pools – embodying the free spirit and optimism of summer. 

To bring this campaign to life, Riccardo called upon a cast of iconic British creatives including photographer Nick Knight, art director Peter Saville and stylist Katy England.

The campaign features a series of raw self-portraits, which were shot at home by Kendall on her computer, bringing a grounding and a physicality to the campaign.

The summer-inspired collection of lightweight pieces is printed with the Thomas Burberry Monogram.

The world of the Thomas Burberry Summer Monogram can be further explored via B Surf – Burberry’s new multiplayer game. B Surf is a racing game on water, where players select a surfboard and dress their chosen character in outfits from the collection, before challenging their friends to race around a TB-shaped track.

2018

In July 2018, our Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci revealed the brand’s new graphic identity, designed in collaboration with the legendary British art director and graphic designer Peter Saville.

Inspired by an original drawing from our archives, the Thomas Burberry monogram (‘TB’) is used on its own and as a repetitive print. It celebrates the heritage of our fashion house in a return to the spirit of our founder, whose initials are referenced in the design.

In September 2018, the Thomas Burberry monogram was brought to life in the Thomas Burberry Bear, which has appeared in New York, Shanghai and London. Many iconic landmarks and major Burberry stores across the world have also been wrapped in the new monogram. It is a powerful new language.

Riccardo Tisci has defined a new language for the brand and new house codes which we are now establishing.
