2 iconic British fashion powerhouses have joined forces to create an oh-so quirky and utterly British limited-edition collection.
Originally announced back in July via a portrait of Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler on Instagram. Now, the time has arrived to shop the surprisingly accessible collaboration (select pieces start as low as UK£55/US$70)
As expected from the ‘Queen of Punk’ the overall feel of the capsule collection is a cool, grunge-era, unapologetic vibe. Pieces include reimagined kilts, berets, jackets and a handwritten message by Westwood herself emblazoned on an oversized t-shirt. This piece will help raise money for non-profit charity Cool Earth who help put a stop to deforestation and climate change. A cause very close to the designer’s hearts. Westwood will also customize 4 items from the collection to be auctioned, proceeds of which will go to Cool Earth.
The campaign (which also dropped today) feature the likes of Kate Moss and Sistren and shot by David Sims, who’s portfolio includes works for Alexander McQueen, Balenciaga and Calvin Klein.
This sure to sell out collection will be the brand’s first collaboration since Riccardo Tisci was appointed Chief Creative Officer in March 2018.
All these pieces are available to purchase online now through the Burberry website.
