A collaboration between fashion designer Vivienne Westwood and luxury brand Burberry was first mentioned in July via the brand’s Instagram account. Now, we finally have a release date and a sneak peek of the collection, thanks to the brand’s Twitter, complete with a video showing quick glimpses of the pieces.

In an Instagram post, Burberry Chief Creative Officier Riccardo Tisci said, “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. 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.”

No details about the collection have been revealed, but the video shows glimpses of pleated mini skirts and laced platforms in Burberry’s signature check. The Vivienne Westwood and Burberry Collection, which will support non-profit organization Cool Earth, will be released on December 6.
