Burberry and Vivienne Westwood host collaboration launch party in London

Riccardo Tisci, Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler hosted a party in London on Friday night to celebrate the launch of their collaboration collection, ‘Vivienne Westwood & Burberry’. The rave was held at the Chelsea Sorting Office and was attended by Matt Smith, Blondey McCoy, Ghali, Mariacarla Boscono, Miley Cyrus, Lily Collins, Mia Goth, Winnie Harlow, Jess Glynne, Lea T, Dolores De la Rosa, Skin, Claudia Lavender, Ladyfag, Octavian, Jazzelle, Dynamo, Josh Quinton, Ezra Miller and Halsey. British artist M.I.A, who features in Burberry’s latest Christmas campaign, performed seven tracks live, and DJ’s Disco Smack, Peggy Gou and Honey Dijon spun live throughout the evening.

‘Vivienne Westwood & Burberry’ is the first collaboration for Burberry under its newly appointed Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci, which launched online and in select Burberry stores globally on Thursday. The collection, which supports the charity Cool Earth, celebrates British style and heritage and is inspired by Vivienne Westwood’s iconic collections, reimagined in Burberry’s Vintage check.

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.
