The collection itself is a calling to war, but not a war of destruction, a war against destruction. Inundated with camouflage, the pieces of AW1819 are military in their style but innovative in their nature: think red Melton army fabric but with raw edges, or trimmed in white lace. Greens, blues, reds, pinks, mauves: the collection is bright and colourful, as folkloric as Westwood always is, but with a sharper, harsher streak. Showing the collection as a film rather than a catwalk event, Westwood explains her aims throughout and allows her Vivienne Westwood ‘Army’ to take control. Evoking unity, celebrating diversity, and promising for change, the collection is a refreshing call for action rather than a meaningless, usually empty, promise. See Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler’s film below, directed by Jason Last and featuring HUNGER fave Emma Breschi as well as a selection of iconic fresh face models, check it out below.
