Tartan-loving, trench-wearing, Tisci-devotees find comfort in the mere hours distancing you and March 17th – Burberry’s latest installment of their B Series Drop.

Following hot on the heels of The Robin Bag, what was an arresting nod to all the British luxury amassed into the single strap of a cross-body, is something more versatile, perhaps more Virgil or Alex Wang, and if we were to merge an Instagram era with a British house re-brand, as spectacle chez Ricardo Tisci, it’d unveil nothing less than what is the Pink Cannon Belt Pack.

Replete with adjustable arm and body straps, a powdered pink ECONYL body (sustainable nylon yarn derived from repurposed fishnets), sporty zip pockets with lanyard tongues, and non-shy front-faced Burberry branding — it’s a girlish utility piece, mimetic of the brand’s SS2020 Runway blueprints. Undeniably, a Tisci-defined Burberry seems TB patterns away from when Christopher Bailey was at the creative helm of it all. The age of Kensington trench coats is now punchy and new, yet it’s as much progressive as it is entrenched in tradition and archival impulses.

The Cannon Belt Pack, available on Instagram for 24 hours as of noon March 17 GMT, the dernier cri of Burberry’s past and a knowing wink toward its future.
