I always check out Vivienne Westwood expecting a little bit of theatrics and a very little bit of wearability. Who could forget the collection that was quite literally Derelicte from Zoolander? But her fall ‘11 show was a pleasant surprise. Finely tailored suiting, a nod to her English heritage and plenty of pieces you could do whatever you want with. That cardigan thing up there in #2 is pretty sweet, good with a leather jacket and whatnot. Good show. Unfortunately for us Americans, there are few places to purchase her collections.
Hopefully the newly launched MR. PORTER (brother to NET-A-PORTER and cousin to THE OUTNET) will bring us some Vivienne Westwood come fall.
