Gvasalia for Balenciaga, Abloh for LV and of course, Tisci for Burberry. I've spent a good few minutes of this year hyperventilating (in a good way) at how fashion has evolved in 2018. This is by far the closest progressive fashion has become to being worn "as is" in the way of streetwear instead of being watered down into the usual commercial, overly accessible PG version of itself with an original element seemingly thrown in here and there for goodluck.
This is why I'm so excited at the announcement that Tisci with be collaborating with Vivienne Westwood for his first collection. I mean it kind of makes sense. Ricardo Tisci is super adventurous in his designs in any case. Burberry is super traditional. And then there's Vivienne Westwood who's the ultimate British fashion rebel to sort of ease the way into the transition. I can’t wait to see what they come up with, I'm expecting something along the lines of a straightlaced anarchist. Could we be prim and proper while rebelling at the same time? I guess we'll have to see.
The collection will be launched in December and will support non-profit organisation, Cool Earth which works to protects rainforests.
