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.)

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 - http://i.telegraph.co.uk/multimedia/arc ... 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,
