Since past few weeks, there were rumours going around that Riccardo Tisci is leaving Burberry.

Donatello Versace has now squashed the idea that Tisci would be joining Versace. According to WWD, Versace has now firmly denied speculation that Tisci would join the company.

Before his confirmation as Burberry Chief Creative Officer in 2018, Tisci was strongly linked to the Italian label and there was a rumour that he was set to join them but it never happened.

It was never clear at the time how Tisci would have worked with Versace, unless the two were going to work out a deal similar to what Miuccia Prada is doing now, sharing the co-creative director’s role with Raf Simons.
