London Fashion Week F/W 19/20

Vivienne Westwood

« This woman was once a punk » titled the British magazine Tatler in April 1989, when Vivienne Westwood graced the cover groomed as Margaret Thatcher. But once a punk, a punk forever! Dame Vivienne is now 77, received her OBE in 2006 from Prince Charles and transformed her fashion show into arty protests for a couple of seasons already. She is true visionnaire, a designer turned into an activist, using her iconic status as a political platform. This season, the British fashion veteran took the mic during the show to develop her most significant statements about the climate change, the rotten political and financial elites and, most of all, the excess of consumption in the fashion system. Buy less and make it last, as she resumes perfectly. On the catwalk, her activism is paired with artist Daniel Lismore, the actress Rose McGowan and her muse Sara Stockbridge. The collection itself was all about what we love from Queen Viv: a perfect chaotic tailoring. We remember in 2018 that she was one of the genderfluid trend pioneer, proposing clothes that can be worn equally by men and women, including mini skirts. When some pretend reshuffling the cards, Vivienne Westwood is simply doing it.
