In July 2018 the two brands announced some very exciting news via an Instagram post featuring a portrait of Riccardo Tisci, Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler. This limited-edition collection of re-imagined British heritage pieces will launch in December 2018. Westwood is famous for her environmental activism therefore the collaboration is supporting the rainforest charity Cool Earth.
The key pieces have been promoted through Vivienne Westwood’s Instagram story. A mini kilt and lace-up platforms in Burberry’s vintage check are the first pieces to be unveiled from the capsule.
