Vivienne Westwood and Burberry, along with Westwood’s husband Andreas Kronthaler, have revealed the campaign for their highly anticipated collaboration — the first for the brand under newly appointed Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci.
“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,” says Tisci. “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.”
The collection features double-breasted jackets, trousers, silk shirts, kilts, a beret, tights and pins — all in Westwood’s iconic designs, reimagined in Burberry’s vintage check pattern.

The stunning campaign images were shot by David Sims and feature a cast of characters including the iconic Kate Moss, Vivienne Westwood herself, Andreas Kronthaler, Sistren, and Leonard Emmanuel, all wearing looks from the limited-edition collection.

The oh-so-English collection also has a charitable aspect to it. Westwood and Tisci shared the vision to support UK non-profit organization Cool Earth, which supports efforts in rainforest communities to halt deforestation and climate change. An oversized T-shirt that reads “‘Cool Earth has a plan to save the rainforest” in Westwood’s handwriting is dedicated to the charity.
The collection begins at $70 and is available in select stores worldwide, as well as online at burberry.com.
