Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2017 Collection – LFW
Vivienne Westwood’s spring 2017 collection was full of patterns, and nearly dream like in appearance. Eighties style jackets were prevalent in this collection, seen on a large number of the looks in different patterns, cuts and sheens. Vivienne Westwood is not known as a subtle designer, her clothing erring just on the side of much and barely touching the nearly too much category.
The Vivienne Westwood spring 2017 collection features bright greens, creams and blues, as well as dark grey, black and white. Unlike many other spring collections, Vivienne stays true to herself and provides a spring evoking palette that is not like anything else shown during London Fashion Week.
There are a few trends that have shown up here in Vivienne Westwood’s spring 2017 collection and drawn in fashionistas. The looser, baggier style is evident and the corresponding silhouettes are very relaxed. Interesting cuts in the design of the jackets make for a different appearance of flow, especially on the looks that include a pattern.
The green pant set with the swerving lines also features the currently very popular long tailed belt. The set was paired with a dark green bag and slip-on black sandals for a relaxed yet moderately professional look.
Another two-piece set featured jogger style capri pants and a matching shirt with an open neckline design, brown buttons and pink piping with pink button holes. This set was finished with a pair of brown sandals that matched the buttons on the shirt. There were a few different shoe options as well, including a few comfortable slides and sandals.
Vivienne Westwood’s spring 2017 collection had a lot of interesting elements to it that included micro ponchos, several patterns, a bit of shimmer, which is seen in a pair of dreamscape appearing leggings that are actually covered from top to bottom in sequins. The leggings were paired with an oversized off-the-shoulder top and oversized blue cuffs.
The Westwood fans will be elated at the variety offered in her upcoming spring line, as well as the changes happening with a few of her other fashion lines. There will be a lot of imminent changes coming about for Vivienne Westwood.
The Gold label that has been under the command of Vivienne Westwood’s husband will be renamed and renewed as Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood, named after the man himself. In January 2017, both the men’s line and the women’s line, which was previously known as Red, will be merged under a single label called Vivienne Westwood.
As with most of her work, this fashion line is already seriously anticipated. Regardless of the upcoming changes with other lines, the Vivienne Westwood spring 2017 collection is a well-planned and beautifully executed visual win that is sure to keep her fans happy.
