The Divine Arc

‘When designing the Olympia, I was thinking about creating the perfect form of a handbag –  something that could capture the essence of femininity’, said Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer


The Olympia bag, designed by Burberry’s chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci, has a crescent curve that moulds closely against the body, “an athletic aura told through its defined arc.

The  shoulder bag is sculpted (hand-moulded on a wooden block) from smooth leather and crafted in Italy.

For the first time that Burberry fans could see that each bag is meticulously finished by hand and its edges finely applied to protect it and ensure it wears beautifully.
