Something Must Be Wrong With Me…

Posted in Fashion by Virgil Sparks on March 9, 2009

… because I am loving the new Vivienne Westwood collection for Fall ’09. Generally I feel like a collection by Viv is out of pure necessity. It often feels as though they just threw together some random cuts and prints that look like her style merely to have a runway show… and then there are others, (very few others) where it looks as though some thought, emotion, and talent have exuded from her and her team.

The collection was classic Westwood, but I feel, at her best. The clash of prints was tame, and the long triangle cut coats and jackets were superbly thoughtful. Not to mention the dash of dreaming fantasy she threw in with her tulle concoctions. For these things, I must admit that yes, she definitely has earned the place she’s created for herself in the world of fashion.
