Vivienne Westwood Red Label RTW Fall 2010: My Picks
Westwood mixed plenty of her signatures into this commercial collection - tailoring, corsetry, tartan and military elements.
For her grown-up clientele, there was plenty on offer, including sweeping military coats, which came in either gray or green wool, and trouser suits in vibrant color combinations, such as blue wool pinstripes or purple wool piped in pink.
But Westwood hasn’t forgotten the party girl contingent - such as Pixie Geldof, who walked in the show - and sent out a clutch of dresses to set flashbulbs popping. They included a cowl-neck minidress fashioned from a mosaic of holographic silver vinyl, and a corseted, off-the-shoulder number in stiff peach satin with a tartan pattern.
Wow, what a heady mix! Though, that's what makes Vivienne Westwood, Vivienne Westwood.
