A pairing of British icons: Burberry x Vivienne Westwood
Two stalwarts of British fashion, Burberry and Vivienne Westwood, are joining forces on a new collaborative collection.
Burberry’s newly appointed artistic director Riccardo Tisci announced the collaboration on his Instagram: “Vivienne was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer…I am SO honoured to announce a new Burbs collaboration with the original British PUNK” alongside an image of Tisci, Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler.
While no further statement has been made about the collection or when it will be available in store, we can hope there will be tartan, some safety pins, a trench coat, a plethora of deconstructed checks and punk boots.
Tisci is due to unveil his first collection for Burberry this September, with a mixed men’s and women’s wear show during London Fashion Week.
