Burberry brings on Vivienne Westwood for collaboration

Get ready for one of the biggest fashion collaborations of the year.

According to Vogue, Burberry and Vivienne Westwood will be teaming up for a highly-anticipated collaboration, largely thanks to Burberry Chief Creative Officer Riccardo Tisci, who cites Westwood as “one of the main reasons he pursued fashion design.”

“Vivienne Westwood was one of the first designers who made me dream to become a designer myself, and when I first started at Burberry, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to approach her to do something,” said Tisci in a release, Vogue reports. “She is a rebel, a punk, and unrivaled 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.”

As for what we can expect from the collaboration, Vogue is predicting the collection will be filled with “subversive corsetry, signature tartans—Westwood has her own plaid trademarked in the official Scottish registry, as does Burberry—and high-drama runway shows.”

But don’t go getting yourself all set for this fashion match made in heaven just yet — Vogue says the collection won’t make its debut until December 2018.

So let’s just say it will be one of the first gifts of Christmas 2018, and we can’t wait to unwrap it all!

Take Her Look [For Less]

Although Fashion Week wrapped up in New York City last week, the parade of this year’s newest fashions is continuing across the pond in London, and the shows are shaping up to be just as much about as those in attendance as the styles making their way down the runway.

According to InStyleone such fashionable guest was Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who attended the Burberry fall/winter 2016 show on Feb. 22. Dressed in head-to-toe Burberry, the model wore a military-inspired coat over a pintuck blouse, which she paired with wide-legged trousers. She completed her look with a cool chain-link bag.

Huntington-Whiteley’s military-inspired look may seem fairly simple with its monochromatic color scheme, but don’t let that fool you. With military-style coats starting from the new collection starting at a cool $2,595, this entire Burberry look is sure to cost you a pretty penny. Although the price might be high, don’t give up hope yet — we’ve found all the pieces necessary to recreate her entire look for under $200. Read on for the results!

Finding a military-inspired coat to rival Huntington-Whiteley’s Burberry number was no easy task, but the Military Faux Wool Coat in navy from Missguided offers a good alternative at a fraction of the price. Done in a darker navy, this coat features a similar double-breasted button style in a shorter length. Available for $85, this coat will form the basis of our look for less.

For only $29.99, these trousers will be well worth the small investment.

While Huntington-Whiteley’s head-to-toe Burberry look may cost upwards of $2,595, our look-alike ensemble will only set you back $148.59. With all the extra money we saved you, you can go out and buy some cute heels and a cool chain-link purse to accessorize your look.
