Burberry X Vivienne Westwood.
Burberry and Vivienne Westwood are both iconic luxury fashion labels in Britain, representing rather different ends of the fashion spectrum. Burberry, with a Royal Warrant, is known for their classic trench coats, a look born over a century ago that has yet to go out of style. Vivienne Westwood, on the other hand, broke into the fashion world with designs that incorporated punk and new age culture. The collaboration was announced on Instagram, and while there are few details about the collection itself at this time, its arrival in December is highly anticipated. Riccardo Tisci, the new Chief creative officer for Burberry, has worked for luxury fashion houses, such as Givenchy, and this collaboration will be his debut collection for Burberry. Tisci says that “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.”. This collaboration will also keep in line with Vivienne Westwood’s commitments to environmentalism by donating a part of the profits to Cool Earth, a charity focused on protecting rainforests.
