Menswear spring 12
The look A winning Olympic wardrobe, from an athlete’s track-and-field looks through to formal tailoring.
Key pieces Fun Olympic-themed graphic T-shirts emblazoned with burning torches, medals and ancient Greek Olympiads, as well as the label’s signature Orb logo. Sporty pieces were also important, such as dropped-crotch shorts, zip-up cardigans and bomber jackets. Westwood’s trademark tailoring was noted, with three-piece suits worn with open-necked shirts and evening suits with cropped trousers.
Colours Chalky neutrals and cool greys through to inky blue, rich plum and black.
Commercial appeal The graphic T-shirts will strike gold for Vivienne Westwood as London reaches Olympic fever pitch next summer, while her athletic look is a high street trend to watch.
