Riccardo Tisci hasn’t even dropped his first collection for Burberry since taking over from Christopher Bailey, and he’s got a superstar collaboration underway.

In a series of Instagram posts, the creative director announced that Burberry will be teaming up with the ‘original British punk’, Dame Vivienne Westwood.

‘Vivienne was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer… I am SO honoured to announce a new Burbs collaboration with the original British PUNK,’ he said.

‘She is a rebel, a punk and unrivalled 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.’

Although it’s not known exactly what the collab will involve, it looks like the collection is going to feature re-worked pieces from Westwood’s archive.

But Vivienne Westwood isn’t just a fashion legend; she’s also arguably one of Britain’s most influential environmentalists too. So it’s no surprise that this collection is going to be supporting the rainforest charity, Cool Earth.

You won’t be able to get your hands on any of the pieces until December…which buys you a bit of time to work out where the hell you’ll get enough cash from to afford any of it.

Unless, of course, you have a bet on England winning the world cup in which case, maybe you’ll more money than you ever expected by this time next week…

A gal can dream, amirite?
