Vivienne Westwood

Key looks
Updated 1950s styles including knitted polos and button-throughs, checked trousers and volume-heavy tailoring

Inspiration
Unkempt gypsy Mickey O‘Neill (Brad Pitt’s character in Snatch) provided the backdrop for Westwood’s show of button-through knits, batwing shirts and high-waisted trousers.

Silhouettes
High-waisted, carrot top trousers and wide sweeping jackets. This is a silhouette that only the broadest shoulders can carry off with aplomb. Got no muscles? Get thee to Jil Sander

Fabrics
Printed wovens for shirting, heavier cottons for trousers and jersey knits were accompanied by shiny effects on shirts and suits 

Colours
Lots of bold brights, checks and intarsias meant that a brave palette included blue, pink, and brown at their most confidently saturated
