Vivienne Westwood Red Label Womenswear S/S11

A bold collection in Westwood's classic reds, pinks and tartan explores her ongoing themes of structured tailoring

Dame Vivienne once again produced a collection that was beautiful, flattering and bold, at the same time as being inevitably her personal statement of both the strong and feminine. Relying as ever on her classic colour choices, reds, pinks, blues and tartan, and her ongoing theme of structured yet accessible tailoring contrasted with draped fabrics, SS 2011 was shown at the Grand Connaught Rooms to an audience featuring artist Tracey Emin, Pamela Anderson, Cat Deeley and interestingly, Marvin from JLS. Having featured in a number of collections from various designers this season, high waisted, loose fitting, pleat front trousers made a strong appearance in Westwood's show, along with cropped school boy-esque shorts, oversized shirt dresses and extravagant ruffled collar dresses. A secondary element to the collection came in the form of a tribal and animal print influence, something also seen at Mulberry, in strong colours such as yellow and blue, which contrasted perfectly with her evening pieces featuring glittered cropped trousers and beautiful full length iridescent dresses.
