London Designers Say It With T-shirts


COTTONING ON: Gimme a “T,” and a “T” — and another “T.” London Fashion Week hasn’t started yet, but there’s a big trend emerging already, around that original unisex item, the T-shirt.
Early Thursday, Riccardo Tisci teased out his first design for Burberry ahead of Monday’s show, a black T-shirt with the new Thomas Burberry monogram, which he designed with the British art director and graphic designer Peter Saville.
The Burberry shirt is the first drop from Tisci’s series of 24-hour product releases, and will be available exclusively via Instagram and WeChat from 12:00 noon British time on Thursday.
Tisci’s Instagram Stories shows pictures of himself, Lily James, Dolores De La Rosa and Chris Lee wearing the shirt, while Matt Smith dons the hoodie version.

The shirt is stocked on and at her Dover Street and Hong Kong
