All Burberry Rosamund Pike, on page 130, is one of the game-changing women celebrated in this month’s Hollywood portfolio … it was announced that Riccardo Tisci, one of the most popular and respected minds working in fashion today, had been appointed chief creative officer at Burberry, I was simultaneously surprised and delighted: I knew it to be an excellent choice. In his blockbuster career, the charming, hyper-focused Italian has had many incarnations – from gothic master to the king of sports luxe – but you pigeonhole Riccardo at your risk. Above all, he is one of those rare, brilliant designers who can do anything.Of course, some questioned how an Italian might handle Britain’s…

backstage pass

Nick Knight shot the first part of this month’s Hollywood portfolio, celebrating women in film, on page 124. “The portrait with the directors was particularly interesting,” he says. “I asked the group to stand in front of a light, creating these monumental shadows that nod to their influence in the film world.” In Face East, on page 115, Lucia Pica, Chanel’s global creative make-up and colour director, recalls her travels around Japan and South Korea with her friend, photographer Harley Weir, in search of inspiration for the brand’s newest collection. “My favourite restaurant was one in Kyoto called Sakamoto,” she says. “We had this eight-course dinner – the dishes were like works of art.” The Business of Fashion’s senior editorial associate Osman Ahmed previews the V&A’s Christian Dior: Designer of Dreams exhibition on page 88.

suit yourself

Let’s face it: you need a suit. But where to start? Well, it’s all in the details: if spring’s oversized tailoring piques your interest, then choose a relaxed cut and pair with a tongue-in-cheek slogan sweater. When it comes to check-patterned iterations, dial down any corporate overtones with casual Friday-style socks or – even more unexpected – this season’s slouchy knee-high boots. As for after dark? Evening suits should come in second-skin cuts, and be worn with barely-there sandals. And don’t forget to add some statement earrings – they’re instantly transformative. ■…
