Paris Collections: Vivienne Westwood Gold Label

Vivienne Westwood Spring 2009 Ready-to-Wear


A huge improvement over her Fall 2008 collection (although not quite as theatrical, unfortunately) Viv's Spring Gold Label collection doesn't cease to amaze and inspire. The soft, downy folds of  duchess satin, the shoulder-obliterating silhouettes, the rumpled folds, the S&M straps all accumulate into an awe-inducing collection that hearkens back to Viv's signature styles and beginnings while still being fresh and new. And, while not perfect on the cohesion front, Vivienne makes her statement quite well. She's certainly incorporating some questionable fabrics, though, including a beach umbrella one, but she's a rebel.
