Crazy shoes. They’re all the rage! Last week, we admired Rodarte‘s urban glamazon heels that could have been made from leftover parts found at the local mechanic’s. Yesterday in Milan, Miuccia Prada debuted a series of Lucite and plastic chandelier shoes with a rainbow of heel colors and swinging crystals. Equipped with what looks to be a velcro strap, the Prada footwear looks somewhat comfy — at least they didn’t send the models tumbling, as did Rodarte’s Nicholas Kirkwood stilettos. After the jump, two more highlights of the over-the-top heels trend! Keep reading »
Animal ears have been a pretty hot, albeit fairly unwearable, trend these last few months. But what could possibly top the Louis Vuitton bunny ears Madonna wore to the Met Ball? Vivienne Westwood took hair pieces to the next level by adorning models at her spring 2010 show with devil horns. You’d think devil horns would look fierce, but these are downright comical.

Vivienne Westwood has released a line of limited-edition, postage-stamp pendants to commemorate her partners in London, Milan, Tokyo, Hong Kong, and Seoul. Only 300 of the individually numbered “precious keepsakes” have been made. The pendants are meant to infuse the history and culture of each place with Westwood’s design aesthetic, but the traditional scalloped-edged, polished silver stamp pendants fall short. Not only is the idea of using stamps to signify travel rather trite, but the pendants also look like something I could pick up in any museum gift shop. Keep reading »
Vivienne Westwood, the British fashion designer who created the wedding dress Sarah Jessica Parker wore in the “Sex and the City” movie, hated the film and thinks she can write a better one. The 67-year-old, who walked out of the premiere after ten minutes, has asked SJP to let her write the plot for the sequel. No word yet whether she’ll be taken up on her offer, but we can’t help wondering what Michael Patrick King, writer and director of “Sex and the City,” thinks about it…not to mention stylist Patricia Field, whose designs for the movie Westwood publicly criticized. “I thought ‘Sex And The City’ was supposed to be about cutting-edge fashion,” she said after the film was released, “and there was nothing remotely memorable or interesting about what I saw.”
So what do you guys think? If Vivienne Westwood writes the sequel, will “Sex and the City” be better than ever? Do you even care what the plot is, or are you happy just seeing the girls again and all the great fashion? [Telegraph.co.uk via NYMag] Keep reading »
Agent Provocateur is known for creating obscene displays. True to their name, the windows of their shops have always pushed the envelope. Photographer Enzo Peccinotti has captured and compiled all the lacey and racy spectacles over the past decade, as well as comments from chic fans like Vivienne Westwood (the ownerâ€™s mother), Blondieâ€™s Debbie Harry, and Kate Moss. Suffice it to say, with all the sexy shots in Agent Provocateur: Exhibitionist, the lingerie line is rendered the same way as their clientele — in an attractive package. [Amazon.com] Keep reading »
