The two symbols of British culture release a collection fusing punk and tradition.

Behold, Burberry x Vivienne Westwood. Can you think of anything more British? Revealing their new collaboration, the two designers have released a shared campaign shot by David Sims, in which we see a pool of references to British iconography from Burberry’s vintage check to the UK’s face of grace, Kate Moss.

Alongside these calls to classics are highlights to a new class, exemplifying what Burberry’s creative director, Riccardo Tisci, describes as a “union of punk and tradition.” Sistren, a trio of self-described “sisterfriends” who run a podcast fostering the narrative of queer black women, star in the campaign opposite moss, wearing mini kilts and berets from the collection. Musician, Leonard Emmanuel sports a T-shirt reading “Cool Earth has a plan to save the rainforest.” nodding to the nonprofit organization that the collab will donate proceeds to.

The collab offers pieces from printed tights and patent platforms to high-waisted trousers and silk twill shirts, all decorated in Burberry’s classic check, with Westwood’s signature punk attitude.
