The look Vivienne Westwood’s spring 11 inspiration ranged from Tutankhamun to Henri Matisse across a mish-mash of prints and silhouettes.
Key pieces A strapless lace dress impressed, as did the sheer tartan fabric used on skirts and dresses. A candy-stripe dress with a full skirt and full tulle dresses belted at the waist injected drama. Fabric was folded and cut to create asymmetric sleeves while hemlines varied from mini to midi lengths.
Commercial appeal The mix of tie-dye, floral and tartan prints was not cohesive but they all had Westwood’s signature charm. Tartan had the most sales potential.
Footwear and accessories Trademark strapped ankle boots and delicate sandals with open toes and thin ankle straps featured. Belts were fabric and tied or buckled leather.
