Designed in collaboration with renowned British graphic designer Peter Saville, the new design marks the first time in 20 years the the brand has changed its iconic motif. Saville, best known for his album artwork for Factory Records, also partnered with Raf Simons to reimagine the Calvin Klein logo.

As revealed in a series of email exchanges between Tisci and Saville posted on Burberry’s Instagram, the new visuals are inspired by a 1908 monogram realised by Thomas Burberry himself and was created in just four weeks.
