Burberry x Vivienne Westwood
British heritage meets punked out activism in what's set to be the collaboration of the year
Launching in December 2018, it will be the first collaboration spear-headed by Riccardo Tisci – who was lauded as a beacon of inclusiveness and diversity on his appointment as Burberry's creative director – and will support the rainforest charity Cool Earth.
“Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself and when I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something,” Tisci said in a statement announcing the union today. “She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled in her unique representation of British style, which has inspired so many of us. I am so incredibly proud of what we will be creating together.”
