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.

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:

PRADA'S RETRO-FUTURISM
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.

SIMON CRACKER PAYS TRIBUTE TO VIVIENNE WESTWOOD
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'S IMAGINED WORLDS
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.

Dame Vivienne Westwood Outlet: ‘Boris Johnson has never had an altruistic thought. He’s completely destructive.’

Dame Vivienne Westwood doesn’t want to talk about fashion. “That’s for Andreas,” she says in her small, resolute voice, which is occasionally flattened by a Derbyshire vowel or two. “Andreas and I work together and he supports everything I do.” She gesticulates at her husband of almost 30 years, who is sitting next to her on the sofa of the Hackney studio where the pair just had their picture taken. Hairy and broad, at least double Westwood’s size and nearly 25 years her junior, Andreas Kronthaler seems a bit distant – his bright blue eyes are determined to look anywhere but at her – which I can only assume is because she’s doing most of the talking. “I’m going to talk and talk and talk, I’m afraid,” she continues. “Then I can stop, because I want to talk about the mission.” ..........Read full article
