Editorial

The collection had no theme, and if it’s Dame Vivienne Westwood herself saying it, we must believe it. Instead, there were many references to environmental issues, clean energy, peace and, in style terms, unisex fashion free from constraints and pigeon-holing. The clothes and decorations went in this direction, with the models, some of whom were dancers and acrobats, dressed up as clowns in classic structured blazers and suits but also second-skin jumpsuits, frayed knits, dresses of various styles teamed with sky-high wedges. Everything was covered in playing card symbols designed by Westwood, representing a map of survival for a free world, as well as prints of the rainforest and little black circles representing the billions that disappear every day in global inflation.
