It feels like a long time since I’ve waxed lyrical about Vivienne.
There ain’t nuffink like the real old skool anti-consumerist orange-haired one. Her philosophy that we should buy less, but buy well, and preferably from her; the consummate poke in the eye for conspicuous consumerism.
Her proletarian approach to high fashion, three lines (Haute Couture plus the two diffusion ranges; Anglomania and Red Label) – make her gear accessible to all, and that’s before the sweetie-scented booties, made in collaboration with Melissa, which I adore:
Punk is not dead in Westwood, and I applaud her, her and her orange hair.
And such a nice little array of neckerchiefs for 2010.
