Burberry’s chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci announced the news on his personal Instagram account, with two images of himself alongside Dame Vivienne Westwood and her creative director Andreas Kronthaler.
“Vivienne was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer,” he said in the posts. “I am so honoured to announce a new Burbs collaboration with the original British punk.
“Vivienne is the most unique champion of British style and has been a huge inspiration for so many of us. I am incredibly proud of what we will be creating together.”
The limited edition collection, which will be the first collaboration for Burberry under Tisci, will launch in December.
The news of the collaboration comes as Tisci prepares to showcase his first full collection for the brand at London Fashion Week in September 2018.
Tisci took up the role of chief creative officer in March this year, following the departure of Christopher Bailey.
