PFW: Vivienne Westwood Autumn/Winter 2010

Vivienne’s main line label was all about climate change which we already saw in Vivienne’s Red Label collection that was shown in London recently. She tackled the issue with printed, shredded t-shirts with large slogans. There was also a mix of colourful, baggy knitwear and patterned, slinky dresses. The models wore dark black eyeshadow, smudged to the eyebrow and out passed the eye, which was teamed with gaudy pink lips. It was certainly not a pretty look - perhaps symbolic.

The knitwear seemed sloppy and dishevelled - almost like the models were wrapped in blankets or table cloths which in reality have been artfully tailored to achieve this perfect dishevelment.

This was a strong collection from Vivienne, thankfully there wasn’t too much of an in-your-face preachy message apart from the subtle call for climate change on the rock’n’roll style tees. The looks were messy, punk and bohemian which is what makes Vivienne’s designs completely her own in the first place.
