As if caught in mid-sentence, trailing off in an idea… Dame Vivienne Westwood’s seemingly haphazardness in her designs…a thing thrown in, a loose fold swinging… is what draws me to her creations. She is one of my favourite designers that exude an anything goes attitude that conceals the meticulousness behind each creation.

Though I’m always intrigued by Westwood’s creations for women, one of my favourites being her Spring RTW 2008 collection – it’s the draping that catches me, and that final shot of her from the runway, exiting, that tells it all – her Fall 2011 collection for men is equally provocating.
Men in luscious red lips? Absolutely – right here in Westwood’s Fall 2011 Collection for Men.
