Burberry and Vivienne Westwood have teased more details on their upcoming collaboration, which was first announced this summer. Two of Britain’s most beloved brands are coming together to honour of British style and heritage.
Both fashion houses took to their Instagram Stories to post a short video clip (below) which revealed that the collection would include a mini kilt and lace-up platforms in the iconic Burberry check. They also announced that the limited-edition collection would be available to buy from Thursday 6 December.
Burberry said the capsule will feature reimagined iconic pieces from the brand’s vast archive and proceeds will be going toward Cool Earth, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to halt rainforest deforestation.
“When I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something. She is a rebel, a punk and unrivaled 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,” Tisci said.
The Vivienne Westwood x Burberry collection will be available online and in select stores globally beginning December 6, Burberry confirmed, with more details to be announced closer to the launch.
