Burberry’s Christopher Bailey ‘Suits Up’ With Ryan

June 8, 2010 1:20 am

Burberry’s Chief Creative Officer Christopher Bailey joined Ryan’s radio show Tuesday to talk about being Ryan’s exclusive suit provider, and Burberry’s new makeup line.

Bailey has outfitted Ryan in some of the most lavish Burberry suits for American Idol, as well as all his red carpet events. In fact, their relationship has become so exclusive that Bailey embroidered the inside of one of Ryan’s suits with, “To Ryan from Christopher Bailey.”

Bailey, who just won the International award at Monday night’s CFDA awards for his outstanding contributions outside the U.S., has made Burberry the relevant company that it is today.

“My responsibility is basically over everything a customer sees,” he said, “so that’s all the collections, all the clothes, all the bags, and then all the stores around the world as well, and everything we do online.”  All the while, Bailey still has time to outfit the celebs!

As part of Burberry’s brand expansion, Bailey is launching “Burberry Beauty,” which is “makeup, cosmetics, and colour [and] it’s on the counters at the end of this month.”
