We are already conjecturing about what will be revealed when the classic brand Burberry and revolutionary designer Vivienne Westwood release their collection of re-imagined iconic British styles.

The limited-edition collection, which will be the first collaboration for Burberry under chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci, will launch in December 2018.

Riccardo Tisci said: ‘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 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’.

The collaboration will support rainforest charity www.coolearth.org.
