When Riccardo Tisci took over Burberry earlier this year, the luxury brand faced a historic overhaul that saw Tisci’s creative impulse give birth to a new Burberry logo, a buzzy debut collection that combined Tisci’s personal aesthetic with the brand’s trademark nova check, and a 24-hour Instagram-only pop-up shop. Today, for his latest act, Tisci unveiled the long-awaited Burberry x Vivienne Westwood mash-up.

The collection slashes the classic Burberry trench coat in half to create a cropped shawl-collar jacket and a teeny-tiny mini skirt and kilt. Westwood’s signature silhouettes—from the double-breasted jacket updated with wool fabric and a sharp, exaggerated collar to a button-down check shirt with an oversized pointed collar and high-waisted trousers—are all dipped in Burberry’s nova check. Even Westwood-style platform heels, printed tights, socks, and a wool beret are apart of the capsule collection.

Westwood and Burberry also co-designed a graphic t-shirt with a handwritten message from Westwood herself emblazoned on the back that reads “Cool Earth has the plan to save the world.” Proceeds from the collection will benefit Cool Earth, a UK based non-profit organization that collaborates with rainforest communities to combat deforestation and climate change.
