Check Out Vivienne Westwood’s £1,000 Charity Table Cloths

Vivienne Westwood, queen of girly grunge, wants to take over your dinner table. How else can we explain the 20 one-of-a-kind tablecloths she’s created for the charity Cool Earth? The designers — like the oh-so-Westwood one at left — were culled from past and current Westwood collections, then transferred onto tablecloths, with Westwood herself hand-signing ones for a limited time. The custom cloths cost £1,000 each, so we won’t be buying any, but props to those who do, as they’ll be supporting the worthy cause of preventing deforestation. More designs after the jump.

I Want Jennifer Aniston’s Jacket

Dear Jennifer Aniston, I’m really sorry I made fun of your belly shirt last week. I was in a bad mood I guess. Anyhoo, I take it all back, because this gray jacket is perfection! Is that Vivienne Westwood Red Label? I think it is, and it’s awfully sharp how the bottoms of your Louboutins match. Chic! xo, e
PS. Glad you tossed the midriff-baring tee. [NYC, 3/15/10] Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Attacked By Kitty On The Catwalk


When Vivienne Westwood stepped onto the runway to take a bow after her Paris Fashion Week showing, someone in the audience threw a stuffed cat at her. Yes. For reals. It took us a second to figure out whether the projectile kitty was real or fake, so thank goodness it was just pretend. But still—super weird. Why would someone do that? [YouTube] Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Wants You To Stop Buying Clothes

Most designers would never suggest that anyone quit shopping. After all, their businesses run according to the premise that the public will go out and buy new clothes every season. But that’s exactly what Vivienne Westwood wants you to do: stop purchasing things. She has a totally legitimate reason however, as this designer is thinking about the good of the environment, and not her bank statement. “We all have a part to play and if you engage with life, you will get a new set of values, get off the consumer treadmill and start to think and it is these great thinkers who will rescue the planet,” explained Vivienne. She’s suggesting that you only buy clothes when you absolutely need them, and attempt to stay away from buying things for six whole months, which is a long, long time for fashion enthusiasts. Sounds like she’s on the “fashion fast” we talked about earlier this week! [British Vogue] Keep reading »

It’s That Time Of Year, Folks

Exciting news, guys. Fashion Weeks are upon us — it’s men’s fashion week right now, so NYC women’s ready-to-wear is right around the corner — and you know what that means. Two words, my friends: Models. Falling. Even though I’ve personally argued against laughing, there’s just no denying that there’s nothing more fascinating (not to mention schadenfreude-inducing) than seeing any one of the great beauties of the world fail at, well, what is basically glorified walking. Never has that been more apparent to me until this dude went down at Vivienne Westwood. That’s all I got to say here. [Stylelist] Keep reading »

I’ll Fly Away

How Cute Are These Rain Booties?

What is it about rain gear that’s endlessly entertaining for girls? (Or maybe it’s just us?) It just makes us smile when we find great grown-up stuff that lets you feel like a kid again—like these friendly Vivienne Westwood rain booties. Everything from the girly color to that bendy bow makes us think that wearing these would transport you to an alternate universe where people skip to work and it rains gumdrops. (Of course, for $125, it would have to rain a lot no matter what fantasy you’re living in.) If you’re looking for something a bit more unisex, Ms. Westwood also makes a bow-less model that comes instead with three gold studs up the ankle. Either way, a pair is guaranteed to catch a smile or two from admirers. [Hervia.com] Keep reading »

Fashion Designer Vivienne Westwood’s Tip For Looking And Feeling Good

You might expect a clothing designer to say, “If you want to look good, wear my clothes!” but in an interview with T magazine, punk rock design icon Vivienne Westwood shared a practical tip for how we can all feel fabulous, no matter who designed our outfit:

“My fashion advice is to have a flattering mirror at home and then forget about it.”

That might be the best fashion advice we’ve ever heard! [T, The New York Times Style Magazine] Keep reading »

Vivienne Westwood Debuts New Wallpaper Line

Here’s one way to make your pad truly a home sweet home: by decorating your walls with Vivienne Westwood’s new wallpaper line. The designs, which were brought to life in partner with Cole & Son, actually take inspiration from Westwood’s runway creations and put some of her signature prints back on to the page. Rolls feature a rich terra cotta orange with green squiggles, illustrated white flowers against a black background, and graphic floral prints.

We’d imagine that, like Vivienne Westwood’s clothes, these wallpaper rolls are pretty pricey. Ah, say la vee. Still, good for decor inspiration. [Grazia] Keep reading »
