Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Autumn 12

Tangled hair, check. Good tailoring, check. Checks, check. But that tells only half the story. As the likes of Nick Rhodes, Sadie Frost, Leigh Lezark, Janice Dickinson and chef Heston Blumenthal squeezed into the front row, Westwood cooked up a storm, using her signature ingredients as the base for a very British collection. There was a more restrained feel to the show overall, with high-buttoned necklines and pin-sharp neat tailoring carrying the grown-up theme. Garments were cut accurately around the body, accentuating a woman’s form in the way only Westwood does, while the styling, though not as outlandish or rebellious as in the past, still kept watchers on the edge of their seats. Colour was rich and deep with pinks, plums, teals and tans, a palette that gave cohesion to a collection that touched on both tailoring and tribalism. A real recipe for success.
