2017 London Fashion Week - Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer Fashion Show


Compared to the hustle and bustle of yesteryear, Vivienne Westwood's London showroom this year was a bit dreary.

This year, Vivienne Westwood did not choose the runway to showcase her designs, but chose an exhibition hall display. The launch follows a rebranding, and in January, Vivienne Westwood's women's side project, Red, merged with the Vivienne Westwood men's brand, at London Men's Week.

In the next two weeks at Paris Fashion Week, the original line called Gold will become Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood, the name change is very different, but honors Westwood’s husband in the creating of this collection.

Westwood’s upcoming side projects have left her collection to take a back seat. With her new autobiography diary "Get A Life", and new store opening in New York and Paris she barely has time to slow down, let alone retire.

Underwear sets, costumes, knitwear and mini capes all with designs hand drawn by the fashion godess make her collection, although low key, ever unique. A red plaid design inspiration came from a pillowcase she had brought for her son Joe's house, and she added to this in her own style. There is also a skirt coupled with a Prince-style high-waist jacket, honoring the unforgetable pop star. She also combines elements of Italian sixteenth century theater for a new and unique style.

Fine lines of navy blue, pencil skirts, trousers and jackets, look sloppy yet sexy, in Westwood’s new collection. Even though the fashion show was low key, the designs of her collection make it difficult to ignore. While the release of the new series coincides with the brand's dorment period, the new collection offers Westwood fans a wealth of choices.
