Vivienne Westwood in Milan

Postby Stu » Tue Jun 26, 2012 3:07 pm

From today's Daily Telegraph fashion page:

"A highly unusual Vivienne Westwood show, in that there was none of the headline-grabbing conceits that has so marked this collection recently. In lieu of Shackleton beards or Derelicte shopping-trolley chic, this was Andreas' vision of a summer picnic. To chamber music it started with a model wearing a flower wreath, then there was loads of nicely cut, linen-y summery suits spiked with evening wear and teamed with pleasant little porcelain-print slippers. It was all becoming worryingly conventional until a short-strawed model came out in a loosely woven jumper dress and another wreath, followed by a chap swathed in the same distressed Union Jack print we saw in the most recent Westwood women's show in Paris.

Is this to do with the lenght of his hair or did he draw the short straw and have to wear the dress? (Which looks quite good.)

If I want to dress like a woman, I'll wear jeans.

I really don't like the dress.
To me it looks like a woman's dress made large enough for a man's frame, and doesn't advance the cause at all.

If the Asian guy on the right had been put in a skirt of the same length, colour and styling cues as his shorts, it would have been a superb look.

The dress is not bad but needs a belt because it is rather formless at the waist - ... 58299a.jpg.
There is nothing worse than double standard!

The dress... Yuk! It's partially transparent, has a neck line designed to show off a bust and a sack like middle to accommodate a beer gut. Quite frankly I think it looks dreadful.

Have fun,
