London, 6 December 2018
Vivienne Westwood and Burberry today revealed the campaign for their collaboration which was shot in London by David Sims.
The campaign features an eclectic cast wearing looks from the limited-edition collection created as a collaboration between Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler.
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.
The collection celebrates British style and heritage and is inspired by Vivienne Westwood's iconic collections, taking a unisex approach across styles.
Vivienne 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 and is now available online and in select Burberry stores globally.
Vivienne Westwood and 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.
