Burberry Introduces The Pocket Bag Campaign Starring Bella Hadid

by Iris

The Pocket Bag is a new signature for the house designed by Riccardo Tisci, Chief Creative Officer. The structured tote takes inspiration from an archival Burberry bag. The original silhouette is reinterpreted by adding a front pocket and leather taping. Crafted in Italy, the bag is finished with contrast topstitching and hand-painted edges. The combination of leather and canvas references the brand’s equestrian heritage.

 

 

 

‘For me, a lot of my creative concepts come from discovering old house codes and then creating new ones. I have always loved going into the archives and that is where I found the inspiration for this Pocket Bag. For Burberry’s first ever bag campaign, I knew that I needed to give the Pocket Bag a powerful modern energy and so together with Katy, Inez and Vinoodh we developed an exciting campaign inspired by Burberry’s Animal Kingdom. Animals have always been a creative obsession and signature of mine, and it was so amazing to see Bella Hadid bring this to life as the panther. She has this fierce power and raw femininity that perfectly embodies the animal spirit.’ Riccardo Tisci, Chief Creative Officer

 

The campaign is inspired by the Burberry Animal Kingdom, a house code first established by founder Thomas Burberry, who chose to present his company with an emblem of a knight on a horse – and for his family crest, a unicorn. Since joining the house, Riccardo has built upon this history by developing and evolving new animal prints and motifs each season.

 

In her second campaign for Burberry, Bella is captured in a series of images and videos by Inez and Vinoodh. Bella embodies the animal figures featured in the campaign through her raw power and feline femininity, reinforcing both Thomas Burberry and Riccardo’s recognition of the power and symbolism of animals.
