Vivienne Westwood Womenswear S/S11

Positive energy, white hair paint and an over sized floral print impressed at Westwood's show

Dame Vivienne Westwood presented a mish mash of colours and fabrics in her Paris Fashion Week show. As usual it was the energy and life-affirming attitude of Viv's collection that struck you. Smiling models, many with white face and hair paint, paraded down the catwalk in bronze boots and a grey and black check pattern, often paired with shirts and deconstructed collars. The silhouettes were often loose, sometimes in white and light grey, but it was the loud orange and yellow that people noticed the most. A classic Westwood over sized floral print and a leopard print attracted further attention, but it was all just in preparation of the piece de resistance; a silver silk gimp mask!
