Vivienne Westwood and Craig Green were two of the best names on Monday’s schedule, also known as the last day of London fashion week men’s. This meant a guaranteed show for the best British creatives.
A normal Vivienne Westwood show is always different from the rest of the fashion week, and her latest collection was no different. To begin with, there was no fashion show, but there was a two-minute and 45-second video that was shot mostly at night or backstage that starred character models, Westwood, an EU flag and sandbags.
Westwood’s theme this year was military style. The message the models kept repeating was “don’t get killed.” The 76 year old designer always manages to put beautiful pieces behind her slogans. The collection put military history with texture and focused more on the color. Westwood’s iconic princess coat was unisex for this collection in big camouflage print, tweed and undyed wool.
The whole collection consisted of belted coats, loose trousers, two-piece suits and draped gowns. Westwood promoted unisex styling for reasons that have to do with helping with the environment.
“You all know what I’m up to – I use fashion as a vehicle for activism to stop climate change and mass extinction of life on Earth,” she said.
