Announced by Riccardo Tisci in July, Burberry is set to unveil a highly anticipated capsule along with Vivienne Westwood.
The brand offered a first glimpse at the forthcoming collection, debuting a short video on social media showcasing some of the pieces in the line, which offers reimagined versions of the luxury British label’s most loved pieces. Among the items is a mini kilt and lace-up platforms. The shared logo for the two brands was also teased.
“Vivienne was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself,” Tisci said of the line when he initially shared the exciting news via Instagram. “I am so honored to announce a new Burberry collaboration with the original British Punk.”
The post featured an image of Tisci, who serves as Burberry’s chief creative officer, alongside Westwood and her art director husband Andreas Kronthaler.
Proceeds from the collection will go towards Cool Earth, a nonprofit organization aiding efforts to preserve rainforests globally.
“Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself and When I first started at Burberry,” Tisch said of the partnership in a statement. “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.”
Vivienne Westwood x Burberry is set to hit retailers on Dec. 6.
