Capturing a elegant, stylish, yet grungy look that incorporates an Alice in Wonderland feel, Vivienne Westwood created an exciting amalgamation of themes this season. The British designer’s collection featured a range of outerwear and formal trousers that are ideal for the office and also included a selection of dresses and corsets perfect for an elaborate evening out.
A rich assortment of satins, fur, sumptuous nets and luxurious wools was fashioned into well-tailored formal trousers, oversized jackets lined with fur and ensembles that shimmered with chequered prints; a unique choice of patterns and a bright colour palette created the perfect display. Remaining true to the eclectic theming, the tones ranged from light pinks, muted greens and beiges to bright oranges, multi-coloured outfits and blacks, adding to the blend of eccentric with fashionable.
Westwood opted for French berets, hooded capes and veils over ruffled hairdos, combined with false tears crafted from sequins and bright eye shadow below the eyes – offering her audience a refined adaptation of the Mad Hatter.
