VIVIENNE WESTWOOD x BURBERRY
*1st collaborative collection
Vivienne Westwood + Burberry revealed the campaign shots for their first collaborative collection.
Shot by David Sims, the London-shot campaign features an eclectic cast wearing looks from the collection created as a collaboration between Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood + Andreas Kronthaler.
“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. - She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled 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.’
Riccardo Tisci, Burberry Chief Creative Officer
The collection celebrates British style + heritage and is inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s iconic collections, taking a unisex approach across styles. Westwood’s iconic designs – from classic double-breasted jackets, a hugger jacket and a mini kilt to lace up platforms and a beret – are all reimagined in Burberry’s Vintage check.
‘Vivienne Westwood + Burberry’ is the first collaboration for Burberry under its newly appointed Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci. Vivienne Westwood + Riccardo Tisci were united by a shared vision to support and promote Cool Earth, a UK based non-profit organisation that works alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change, through this collaboration. At the heart of the collection, is an oversized T-shirt dedicated to the charity, with a handwritten message from Vivienne. She will also customise four exclusive items from the collection to be auctioned to raise further support for Cool Earth.
The cast includes: Kate Moss, Sistren, Leonard Emmanuel, LadyFag, Josh Quinton, Andy Bradin, DelaRosa, Claudia Lavender, Marco Motta, Sashadavai and Jacob Shifrin as well as Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler.
