Habt ihr eigentlich auch Kleidungsstücke bzw. Accessoires die ihr nur zu bestimmten Jahreszeiten tragt? Klar, meine ich keinen Bikini, den man eh nur im Sommer trägt oder dicke Wollpullis im Winter. Ich meine Sachen, die quasi eigentlich immer gehen, aber doch von der Optik her irgendwie nur zu bestimmten Jahresabschnitten passen.

Bei mir ist das die VIVIENNE WESTWOOD Tasche mit dem passenden Namen ‘Winter Tartan”. Das Muster und die Farben schreien einfach sowas von Herbst/Winter, dass ich sie passend zum Oktoberanfang wieder rausgekramt habe. Nach Januar landet die Tasche meistens wieder im Staubbeutel verstaut im Kleiderschrank und darf sich auf einen Frühling/Sommer-Schlaf freuen, bis sie im Herbst wieder raus darf. Aber mal ehrlich, wirklich sommerlich ist sie nun wirklich nicht, oder? Dafür umso auffälliger! Kombiniert habe ich sie daher schlicht mit schwarzer Jeans von ZARA, einem schwarzen Mantel von OASIS und ZARA Schnürpumps (bereits hier getragen). In dem Sinne: Happy October!

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – London Fashion Week

Categories:Fashion

Every time Vivienne Westwood presents a new collection, she has a message to say on a particular cause, charity or campaign. The newest Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2015 collection show was dedicated to the campaign supporting Scottish Independence. The famous British designer has strong hopes that Scotland will finally become an independent country. This was the message of a sizzling collection, which has just been unveiled at London Fashion Week. With its classy, feminine and elegant designs, it certainly manages to attract loads of attention to the Scottish power.

Vivienne Westwood Red Label Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – London Fashion Week

Coming to the major trends seen in the Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2015 collection, we can mention the variety of suits styles, put as skirt suits, pants ones, ones with vintage motifs or stylish suits with modern and innovative interpretations. Matched with elegant shirts or crop tops, they all look maximum feminine and classy, ideal to be sported to office or on the days when you want to look utterly elegant. Light gray, navy blue, light chocolate, peach, brown, striped, monochrome… Options are endless and the task of making a choice is certainly difficult, as they all look chic!
After the elegant start, the show suddenly takes a flirty and playful turn, this time presenting an array of bodysuits, oversized knee-length skirts and pretty dresses in a myriad of prints, styles and colors. Stripes, polka dots and floral prints adorn these garments along with lots of ruffles. Off-the-shoulder designs, draping and delicate lace have also been used here, and there are also dresses with bow fabric belts fastened on the waists.
Although we are used to seeing one-of-a-kind and sometimes even weird designs from Vivienne Westwood, the Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2015 collection ditches the modern punk and new wave motifs characteristic of the fashion house and brings classic styles targeting a bigger audience. Still, when it comes to the makeup choices spotted at the show, we can still note the Westwood-appropriate uniqueness: the models came out bare-faced with different colors smudged on the faces irregularly. The hair was styled completely differently, either gathered high up into knots and updos or kept loose and natural.

As far as the accessorizing options go, the looks presented came complemented with classic heeled shoes, and in some cases also with unique hats. The show was closed with maxi elegant dresses and overalls, coming either monochrome or printed with lush colorful patterns.
Whether the Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2015 collection show has managed to somehow help the Scottish people gain independence or not we don’t know, however, we are more than sure it has already won the hearts of many fashionisers, serving as an endless source of inspiration for stand-out spring looks.

A Wedding with the Sex and the City Vivienne Westwood Dress

Bride leaning on groom's shoulder

Do you remember Carrie Bradshaw’s Vivienne Westwood wedding dress from the first Sex and The City movie? Of course you do. Well today we are featuring the fabulous wedding of super cool couple Sashy and Dashy, photographed by Anna Hardy Photography, and Sashy wore the Vivienne Westwood dress.

We love everything about this wedding, from the amazing dress (of course) to the beautiful brooch wedding bouquet, the male ‘flower girls’ in shorts to the abundance of gold.

We know you’ll love this week’s fun and quirky real wedding.

“My mum and I have always loved over-the-top gold gilt, so when planning there was an obvious golden finish to almost everything! As our wedding was at the Crab & Lobster, a venue that is already so beautifully decorated, there was a slightly nautical feel throughout. All our stationery had anchors on and the favours were displayed in scallop shells that we’d spray painted gold, to give a more glamorous Louis XV feel.

“The main inspiration for the wedding was the outfits I had picked out. I’m a big collector of Vivienne Westwood clothes so I was excited to dress my bridal party up in them! I actually fell in love with the gown I wore when I was just 17 years old, so the first thing I did, before even proposing to Dashy, was buy the dress! The shape of the hemline on the dress reminded me of a scallop shell, which seemed to work so well with the venue. The print on the bridesmaid dresses is Westwood’s iconic Salon Print, a photograph of the opulent interior of a stately home. The print worked as a beautiful colour palette and inspiration for all things gold gilt!”

Vivienne Westwood 2014 Fall/Winter Collection

Continuing to push the envelope each season with compelling looks, Vivienne Westwood took the runway at Milan Fashion Week recently with her 2014 fall/winter collection. While Westwood’s inspirations are often far-flung, her latest range looked to recent protests against oil and gas fracking in the UK, which Westwood describes as an “irresponsible behavior of our governments.” To combat this disposition, models were styled with thick, matte colored hair, PVC anoraks nodded to inappropriate toxic waste disposal, while neoprene sweatsuits brought to mind modern crusaders. Elsewhere, patterned dresswear presented bold alternatives to quintessential menswear designs and classic footwear designs were injected with loud bursts of color, while timeless pieces like the double-breasted biker jacket reinforced the label’s rebellious motifs in fashion.

Vivienne Westwood is one of most fabulous and influential designers of all time. She was born on April 8, 1941 as Vivienne Isabel Swire. She taught primary school in North London. Vivienne's first husband was Derek Westwood. She had one son with Derek, named Ben, who later became a photographer. 

Vivienne met Malcolm McLaren who was a friend of her brother. Malcolm and Vivienne became friends and Malcolm faked being sick for awhile to get Vivienne to take care of him and to be near her. Malcolm McLaren was the manager for the Sex Pistols and Vivienne designed the clothing for the band. Vivienne Westwood also designed clothing for the New York Dolls and other bands. Vivienne was one of the first original designers when the punk movement started. Many of her garments are now collectibles. The V&A museum in London had an exhibition of Vivienne Westwood styles from 2004-2005. 

In 1970, Malcolm and Vivienne opened a shop on 430 King's Road in London called Let It Rock. They sold clothing targeted at the London Teddy Boy scene. Vivienne designed clothing for the store. The shop eventually went through a few incarnations. In 1972, the store became Too Fast to Live Too Young to Die and featured t-shirts with provocative slogans, leather clothing, and garments with zippers and chains. In 1974, the shop transformed again. It was called Sex and featured S&M clothing. Sex became synonymous with the punk scene. Then the shop became Seditionaries. Today, Vivienne Westwood's World's End iconic boutique carries her limited edition special clothing, shoes, and accessories. 

Vivienne and Malcolm's son is Joseph Corre. Joseph Corre founded the women's lingerie company Agent Provocateur and now designs his own menswear line along with Simon "Branzley" Armitage named, A Child of the Jago. 

Controversy surrounds the style of Vivienne Westwood. Supermodel Naomi Campbell famously took a tumble modeling nine inch platform shoes at a 1993 Vivienne Westwood Anglomania fashion show. The incident made these shoes famous. Always pushing the envelope, Vivienne Westwood excitingly experiments with the extremes of fashion. 

In 1992, Vivienne Westwood married her current husband and creative partner, Andreas Kronthaler. In the same year, Vivienne caused another controversy when she received the OBE award. She twirled in her skirt and was knicker-less! She repeated the incident again in 2006 when she met the Prince of Wales. 

Vivienne has always been a caring and political person. In 2005, she teamed up with British civil rights group Liberty to launch exclusive limited design t-shirts. One reads, "I AM NOT A TERRORIST, please don't arrest me!" The other shirt reads, "Liberty - Throw Away the Key." 

Vivienne Westwood collections include four women's lines: Gold Label, Red Carpet, Red Label, and Anglomania. She has a men's line appropriately titled MAN. She also has a World's End line that features her classic pieces from the Vivienne Westwood archive. Vivienne Westwood also designs a collection of bags, shoes, sunglasses, eight perfume lines, and has multitude of stores all over the world! 

"You have a much better life if you wear impressive clothes." - Vivienne Westwood.
