Vivienne Westwood SS18: London Fashion Week Men’s

The Vivienne Westwood SS17 London Fashion Week Men’s show was a politically charged showcase of typically outlandish fashion from the Dame. The theme of the show was one that is very much in the public agenda – environmentalism, awareness of mankind’s destruction of the earth and fashion waste – cue slogan t-shirts, plastic water bottles strapped to feet and Coke cans stuffed into tights.

The setting was Seymore Leisure Centre in London’s Marylebone. Acrobats flipped and cartwheeled down the makeshift aisle of the sports hall and ballerinas twisted and contorted to the live music from instrumentalists Levent & Taylor alongside vocalist Mic Righteous, who sang songs about Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn, amongst others.

The style featured numerous ‘0’s printed on pieces to signify the ‘0’s that corporate bank accounts make with ease, but would make a significant difference to initiatives and charities aiming to save the earth. Spades and hearts, pinstriped suits, fishnets and corset dresses – on both men and women – were also a constant throughout show.

Dame Vivienne Westwood, at 76, is showing no sign of slowing down – she rode down the catwalk on the shoulders of a male model, dancing and waving, with ‘motherf***er’ scrawled across her t-shirt – another rebellious message aimed towards the corporate giants that are destroying the earth.

The show was supported, naturally, by a host of celebrities sitting in the front row – model David Gandy and presenter Dermot O’Leary to name just two.
