… I couldn’t go one more day without showing you what to expect from the Dame herself, Vivienne Westwood, for the autumn/winter months.

As you know Westwood is my favourite designer of all, so to pop into the press office is always a rare treat for me. To be surrounded by that much Westwood is, just, well too much. I never want to leave. And when I do, I always wonder how far down the road I’d get running hell-for-leather with a bin bag full of clothes! (I wouldn’t really do that, PR people)


For the boys, expect…

– Lots of amazing trousers; signature drop crotch styles in grey checks, tartans (yum!), car print (my favourite, I WILL own these) and the most intense caramel colour (need to appreciate these in person)
– Fab sweaters
– Lots of shirts with piping
– More gorgeousness from the Lee and Anglomania collaboration; men’s high waisted jeans and contrast colour stitching on shirts and jeans

Last season saw the launch of the Westwood UN African bag collection. All the materials used are recycled, mainly from old tents and advertising banners, and are made by women in Nairobi. The proceeds from all the bags sold go back to the African women, so it’s most definitely work and not charity, something Viv believes in firmly! Next season’s bags are even better with their hand made orbs, bigger and more unisex styles, and the use of wire piping to add some more colour! The prices start from around £80 and go up to £120, they’ll be in store only from around August.

For the girls…

There’s just always SO much to look at for the girls, but highlights include:

– Angolmania’s new elephant tees
– Red label’s war-time inspirations in thick trousers, capes and blouses
– Gold labels AMAZING couture (below)
– The new Melissa collaboration colours – think neon blue!
