Vivienne Westwood Sale

Dame Vivienne Isabel Westwood DBE RDI (née Swire; born 8 April 1941) is a British fashion designer and businesswoman, largely responsible for bringing modern punk and new wave fashions into the mainstream. She is an example of a modern day female impresario.Vivienne believes that fashion is a combination and exchange of ideas between France and England; “On the English side we have tailoring and an easy charm, on the French side that solidity of design and proportion that comes from never being satisfied because something can always be done to make it better, more refined.”Westwood was one of the architects of the punk fashion phenomenon of the 1970s, saying "I was messianic about punk, seeing if one could put a spoke in the system in some way".The "punk style" included BDSM fashion, bondage gear, safety pins, razor blades, bicycle or toilet chains on clothing and spiked dog collars/chokers for jewellery, as well as outrageous make-up and hair. Essential design elements include the adoption of traditional elements of Scottish design such as tartan fabric.

Beyoncé Goes Retro in Vivienne Westwood Outlet Store Couture

It’s Beyoncé’s world, we’re just living in it. On the European leg of her Renaissance World Tour, the “Alien Superstar” singer is flawlessly belting out her hits (the mic is unquestionably on) while wearing exquisite stage attire, including that Loewe bodysuit, dazzling Valentino gowns, and the metallic Coperni cape she’s worn while astride a giant silver disco horse. But her off-stage looks also require attention.

Her latest Instagram post finds the pop sensation wearing a black and white pinstripe blazer, matching hot pants, and a black bralette. A black leather Talel mini bag, black micro-shades, and black leather pair of vintage Vivienne Westwood thigh-high boots – from the British brand’s Red Label autumn/winter 2010 collection, sourced from Pechuga Vintage – completed the look. Sourcing trophy vintage is fast becoming a competitive sport for the A-list (in positive news for sustainability), and Bey’s choice of footwear is also a nice nod to her location. The superstar wore the boots while in London for her four dates at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, posing with husband Jay-Z at the Mayfair members’ club Oswald’s. What better way to embrace London fashion than with a nod to the late, great Vivienne Westwood?

There have been other noteworthy off-stage looks from Queen Bey: over the weekend she wore a silver studded black drop shoulder Balmain mini dress – from the brand’s autumn/winter 2023 collection, rather than her own collection with creative director Olivier Rousteing – with a matching handbag, and a matching pair of platform heels. Prior to that, she opted for a tweed Michael Kors shorts suit, vintage Chanel earrings, nude Christian Louboutin heels, and a black ​​Dior Montaigne box bag. Whether she’s in front of an audience or not, Beyoncé is a fashion icon.

Through the Looking Glass: Gabbriette's Surreal Vivienne Westwood Dreamscapes

Fantasy fuels so much of the art that we obsess over. Unrestrained by limits or logic, wondrous and strange, we consume it enthusiastically. It’s at the heart of David Lynch’s work, where everything is possible and nothing is what it seems. Vivienne Westwood drew upon dreams of courtly culture, of rubber fetishists, of pirates, highwaymen and dandies to create a world of undiluted fantasy and fun. Madonna and Steven Meisel’s boundary-pushing photography book Sex opens with the introduction: “Everything you are about to see and read is a fantasy, a dream, pretend.”

It was these three artists, and the mood of blurred realities that they so successfully bring to life, that combined to provide the inspiration behind a new series of photographs. Starring model of the moment Gabbriette, the shoot pays tribute to Vivienne Westwood’s great legacy and taps into the strangeness of Los Angeles. “Mischievous, playful, anarchic, melodrama – these were the moods we felt we wanted to explore in the context of Hollywood, Vivienne’s legacy and Gabriette’s fresh energy,” says art director Claire Arnold.

Photographed by Jen Wolf and styled by Rosa-Safiah Connell, the shoot sees Gabbriette captured against a Los Angeles backdrop as she shapeshifts into different characters – at times jester, at times old Hollywood star and Westwood archetype. Patricia Arquette in Lost Highway was a reference for the team, but the mood also recalls the high glamour and fantasy of another Lynch masterpiece, Mulholland Drive, and the melodrama of a Hitchcock leading lady.

To source the iconic Westwood outfits, the team collaborated with Pechuga Vintage, the go-to store for the rarest and most sought-after archive items in the industry. “Rosa asked for my VW ‘Portrait’ corset and I told her that it was best if someone from my team be present to handle the item,” says founder Johnny Valencia. “When she agreed we then decided to bring in more items including our extremely rare Vivienne Westwood bum cage from AW95, ‘Vive la Cocotte.’” In total, the Pechua team prepped for 16 hours and brought in $80,000 worth of Vivienne Westwood pieces. “I really wanted this to be special for everyone, especially for Gabbriette. G said this was by far the best shoot she had been on.”

On beauty, make-up artist Jezz Hill, hairstylist Eric Williams and nail artist Juan Alvear created striking creations that paid homage to Westwood’s most daring beauty looks over the course of her career. The team incorporated elements of Westwood herself – think her red drawn-on brows – with punk-era Nina Hagen-esque blush, pale powdered complexions and sky-high beehives. One hair look was inspired by Westwood’s AW93 runway show, with Williams combining pincurls and silver clips with blonde extensions into a ponytail, while the early Hollywood glamour of the AW92 catwalk was also an influence.

Casting Gabbriette in this role of a starlet navigating the weirdness of Hollywood, while simultaneously paying homage to Westwood, was a natural choice for the team. “She has such a raw and real beauty that is more reminiscent of the 90s with a genuine nod to subcultures through her own style which doesn’t feel contrived,” says Connell, who was “captivated” by the model’s presence. “I find her playful sexiness imbued with the spirit of punk reminded me of a lot of Vivienne’s representations of women throughout her work.”

Below, the team share more about their concept, stories from behind the shoot and the cinematic setting of Los Angeles.

What does Vivienne Westwood mean to you and to the wider fashion community?

Rosa-Safiah Connell [stylist]: Being British, Vivienne always meant a lot to me. My parents had me during the late 80s and I was surrounded by punk influences as a child as that’s what they were into. In a way Vivienne’s designs created a bridge from these underground subcultures into a luxury high fashion space which infuses the spirit and essence of British fashion. She really managed to embody the most positive and exciting aspects of British culture through her work. 

Jen Wolf [photographer]: Being in the Southern California punk scene in my formative years exposed me to so many firsts, and Vivienne was this incredible portal into the fashion industry for me; a reason for me to delve deeper into it. Her work exposed me to the more gritty and real-world inspirations that can be found in fashion, and it really helped me to visualise someone like myself being able to command and make a place for myself in that world. I pivoted towards fashion imagery after seeing that designers like her were able to really make their own lane in the industry. I think she has a truly one-of-a-kind legacy, which is so powerful because it’s not something that can be manufactured. 

The shoot takes place against the backdrop of Los Angeles and particularly Hollywood – why did you choose these as a setting?

Claire Arnold [art direction]: We were very careful to pick spaces that felt blurred the lines of reality and fantasy to balance the clothes and sense of character we were exploring. It was an interesting tension to play with to keep an element of rawness in the moments to ground the extraverted quality in Vivienne's pieces. Jen’s work has such a human yet cinematic quality it was such a beautiful match.

Jen Wolf: This really was the idea Rosa and I played with from the start. Knowing Gabbriette, I knew she could “play” the part. Rosa and I have always referenced films with one another, and I think we are both similarly delighted with the strangeness of Los Angeles. It’s a place that is both simultaneously average and dark, in that it has all of the problems of a city but it’s cloaked in these dramatic backdrops. All of the locations are no more than a 15-minute drive from me and, if you pay attention to your surroundings and to the light the city gets, it’s very cinematic. The contrast of that, with these Westwood characters made by hair, make-up and styling, is what instantly gives this feeling of a leading lady.

Why was Gabbriette the right model to pay this tribute to Westwood?

Jen Wolf: I first saw and cast Gabbriette about seven years ago. We worked together often for a few years and so many of the reasons I was drawn to her. [She really] felt like a catalyst for this shoot. They both have a punk attitude that is core to their personalities. We both grew up in a similar area, beach towns an hour south of Los Angeles, a place that I think just immediately gets associated with producing surfers. She has always really embodied to me the archetypal alternative Southern California girl – sort of the perfect opposite of what we are told the LA girl is like.

Pechuga [vintage archive]: Gabriette represents the girl that I want to dress: Latina, beautiful, down to earth, and with a shared love for design. I’m Salvadorian and it was nice to be able to speak Spanish on set, not just with G but with the MUA and the photographers. More [email protected] in spaces of luxury. Let’s go. 

How was the experience of the shoot itself?

Pechuga: In Gabbriette I saw glimpses of Cindy Crawford and a young Gia Carangi. Such effortless beauty is inspiring, and the vision becomes clearer when you have someone that “gets it”. Gabbriette looked as if she’d been poured into the looks. The whole shoot was a perfect homage to Westwood in the 90s.  

Claire Arnold: The death defying sky high platforms are a challenge in the Hollywood Hills. Gabriette slayed.

Jen Wolf: We all hit it off so quick and naturally. Which is great because then you can really get into the looks that are happening. I just think of the team going back and forth in the Hollywood hills in these major looks felt very LA. I’m so massively grateful for all the creatives that put their time and talent into this. It was clear we all have deep admiration for Vivienne and being able to individually pay homage to her was incredible to see.

Milan Fashion Week: Prada's retro-futurism and a tribute to designer Vivienne Westwood Outlet

MILAN: The Milan menswear runway was full of spare looks for next fall and winter as if the fashion world is taking a deep breath, to see what happens next.

The colour of the season: Black.
The silhouette of the season: slim or relaxed, but mostly tailored.
Bags: Utilitarian.
Shoes: Oversized and sole gripping.

Still, all of this utility was punctuated with romantic, feminine and even sexy gestures.

Here are some highlights from the third day Sunday of mostly menswear previews for fall-winter 2023, as many big brands seemed to be hitting the reset button:

The ceiling on the darkened Prada showroom rose to reveal industrial chandeliers as the first looks appeared on the runway: tailored, slightly blocky suit jackets with sharp, wing-like collars that flapped gently with each step, secured and cushioned by just a wisp of colorful knitwear.

The collars, reminiscent of the 1930s or '70s and in retro geometric prints, gave a romantic touch to an otherwise spare and cleansing collection by co-creative directors Miuccia Prada and Raf Simons.

"There is no space for useless creativity,'' Prada summed up backstage.

The sharp collars, which appeared also on cardigans, are detachable, giving garments a longer life, and utility. On the runway, they were sexily styled without shirts.

The pair continued their exploration of uniforms, the sort that exemplify the value of working and not projecting authority. In that vein, suede tunics with matching overcoats recalled an artisan's apron, worn with a shirt and tie to emphasize the virtue of work, and over the season's slim trousers.

The clean looks and minimalist tailoring had an intentional retro-futuristic feel, that Simons defined as "very Prada, in my opinion."

Puffer coats had a rotund shape. Quilted T-shirts kept the torso warm under overcoats. Shoes were thick-soled lace-ups with raised piping. Bags were slim document or computer bags, with a thermos slot.

Suiting was mostly black or gray, with separates providing color: trousers in red or green, cerulean blazers, yellow and pink cardigans.

Even the venue at the Fondazione Prada was stripped of artifice, down to the concrete floors and walls and ceiling, which dropped back down as the models left the runway.

Outside, hundreds of screaming K-Pop fans greeted the Enhypen band as they arrived for the show, and a few were rewarded with selfies afterward.

The designers behind the Simon Cracker brand paid tribute to Vivienne Westwood's legacy during a runway show presenting their latest collection of upcycled garments.

"We are here thanks to her. She was the first to make garments from upcycling,'' said Filippo Biraghi, who founded Simon Cracker with Simone Botte in 2010.

"We studied her, we wore her, we lived her and we feel allied,'' Biraghi said of the British designer who died last month at 81. "She used fashion to protest, as a language of protest, for her entire history."

Following in Westwood's upcycling footsteps, the designers collect unclaimed garments from drycleaners and textile remnants from producers to make their unique creations.

In this punk-inspired collection, each garment is one-of-a-kind, promoting nonconformity. Caps served as epaulets on jacket shoulders; a mini-skirt was fashioned from tiered ruffles in the front and netting in the back; handmade blankets became overcoats. Knitwear was made from recovered yarn and in collaboration with designer Gaia Segattini.

In the spirit of Westwood, the show closed with a model swathed in a tulle garment with the words: "Demand the Impossible," emblazoned on the front. The garment was a collaboration with Jamie Reid, the art director of the Sex Pistols, who donated clothes from his "Ragged Kingdom brand,'' for the final looks.

For the finale, all the models wore photos of Westwood around their necks. Biraghi, who wore a T-shirt picturing a joyful Westwood on the front, turned to reveal another image of her scowling on the back.

The designers said their messaging, one that has been with them since the brand's inception, has grown more urgent, citing the danger to the planet and "the system's mockery."

"There is something wrong if you are not pissed off today,'' Biraghi said.

Charles Jeffrey Loverboy, the label of the self-proclaimed club kid and Scottish-born designer Charles Jeffrey, brought joy to the Milan runway with fanciful storytelling though knitwear, kilting and prints.

Jeffrey presented his "Engine Room" collection through three subcultures in a mythical floating city: workers, whose toil keeps the city aloft; posers, or former workers who now bask in luxury; and snakes, aka, the media. While other brands hewed toward the minimal, Jeffrey went maximal, with a focus on sartorial details and an explosion of color.

The workers were clothed in gray, black and white, faces smudged, with starry prints and clawed footwear. Posers burst with color, including graphic prints from the archives of the Scottish artist and playwright John Byrne, metallic accents and endearing knitwear with kwai detailing like hoods with ears. The snakes had a Goth edge, dark garments giving way to newsprint prints against a black-white-and-red (read) palette.

Jeffrey called the collection "a celebration of Scotland, workers and Renaissance people." ..........Read full article

Vivienne Westwood outlet online: Julian Assange to ask for prison leave for funeral, says wife

Wikileaks founder Julian Assange will request leave from the high-security Belmarsh Prison to attend Dame Vivienne Westwood's funeral, his wife says.

Dame Vivienne was a vocal supporter and friend of Mr Assange for more than a decade, famously protesting against his incarceration suspended in a bird cage.

She died in London on Thursday aged 81.

Mr Assange is fighting extradition to the US on charges related to the publication of thousands of classified documents in 2010 and 2011.

His wife Stella Assange, who has described Dame Vivienne as "irreplaceable", told the BBC her husband and the designer had a close personal relationship.

Having known Mr Assange for more than 10 years, she said Dame Vivienne was a strong supporter of WikiLeaks' work.

"I know that Julian would want to honour her," said Ms Assange, adding that her husband's solicitor had been asked to put in a request for him to attend.

A Ministry of Justice spokesman told the BBC that it was unlikely such a request would be granted as this kind of leave was only meant for close relatives.

However, there was no explicit ban, he said, and it was up to prison governors to decide on a case-by-case basis.

A relevant guidance document states that applications should "balance security considerations with those of decency, and should only be refused on security grounds".

Mrs Assange insisted there was "no obvious reason" why the prison would not be able to grant the request, arguing there were "good compassionate reasons why it should".

Details of Dame Vivienne's funeral have not yet been made public.

The Derbyshire-born designer made her name with her controversial punk and new wave styles in the 1970s and went on to dress a number of big stars.

Mr Assange himself described her as a "pillar of the anti-establishment", in comments released by his wife on Twitter.

He saluted Dame Vivienne's creativity and friendship, saying she would be "missed terribly by me and many others".

One headline-grabbing show of support for the Wikileaks founder saw Dame Vivienne suspending herself inside a large cage outside the Old Bailey in 2020.

She condemned her friend's detention as a "stitch-up", and led other protesters in chanting for his release.

Dame Vivienne also designed the wedding dress seen during Julian and Stella Assange's small wedding ceremony in Belmarsh earlier this year.

She cemented her friendship with Mr Assange by visiting him regularly during his long stay at the Ecuadorian embassy in London as well as in Belmarsh, Mrs Assange said.

The two saw in the 2015 New Year together at the embassy, she added.

Mr Assange took refuge there for seven years, seeking asylum to avoid extradition. As well as his work with Wikileaks, he faced a rape allegation in Sweden. That investigation was later dropped.

But he was removed from the embassy in 2019 and imprisoned, and now faces a US trial over a leak of military information.

A request to hand him over has been approved by the UK government. However, Mr Assange is battling this, and has said the case against him is politically motivated.

A job at Vivienne Westwood’s outlet shop made me a Sex Pistol

Iwalked into Let It Rock, looking for a pair of brothel creepers. I’d been in there a bit too long and some guy says: “Can I help you?” I said I was looking for work. I’d been fired from my part-time job in the trouser department at Whiteley’s. He told me to call Malcolm and Vivienne. That’s how I started out in the shop. They probably thought I was just some straight kid, which I was.

A month or two later, I asked Vivienne to ask Malcolm if he’d give me a reference for art college. She said: “Really? I don’t think you’d want to ask Malcolm because he’s been thrown out of every college in London.” Straightaway I was more interested in them and they were more interested in me.

That summer, McLaren and Westwood turned the shop into Sex. They were fed up with the rightwing mentality of the teddy boys and I helped with the sign outside. I’d learned how to silk-screen, so they asked me to do two images: a big red baseball player with a massive dick and another of two cowboys with their willies touching. I said I’d give it a go. It took too long and Vivienne got all dogmatic, saying I was trying to censor her work when I wasn’t at all. If you got on her wrong side, she’d let you know.

About then, Steve (Jones) and Paul (Cook) started coming in. It was my job to keep an eye on them. They were trying to get a band together and I overheard them saying they needed a bass player. So that’s how it started.

A lot of people think Vivienne and Malcolm made all the clothes but they didn’t – they provided a base where we all met. The hippest place in London on a Saturday afternoon, where every oddball and weirdo congregated. We gravitated there for our own reasons, a mishmash of people who went on to do something. And Vivienne was like the madam of a belle epoque salon. I don’t think she did it deliberately. She picked up on things, such as when John [Lydon] came in with a safety pin through his ear.

Whatever she did, she did with real artisanship and craft. If something came back from Mr Green in the East End with a seam in the wrong place, Vivienne was on it. She used tailoring to get her ideas across, to turn what you were supposed to look like on its head. She was always at the V&A or the Wallace Collection. She was into the conflict of ideas and knew what she wanted to do.

She was one of the first vegetarians I met. Yet when I got chicken, she’d take the bones home to boil and sew on to T-shirts. They’d had the shop less than a year when I turned up and were still trying to work out what they wanted to do. It’s amazing now. There’s a Vivienne Westwood flagship store in Shanghai and go to Harajuku in Tokyo and the girls are dressed in Westwood. From chicken bones to head of a fashion empire: it’s only by sticking out that you get lasting acclaim and to have continual success is hard. She did it. I’m not sure we’ll see the likes of her again.
