>> One can't go wrong with school girl classics like pleated tartan skirts, button-up blouses, and plaid blazers — especially when there's a bit of African print thrown into the mix. Who else but Vivienne Westwood could make it work together so joyfully? However, this season's wild mixing felt slightly more subdued than usual, with sparkling space-dyed cardis and slogan tees tempered by sharply tailored suits and curve-hugging sheaths.
Vivienne Westwood brought her signature brand of punk rock glamour for Fall, showing a collection of easy, hipster-cool pieces for Red Label. The designer pulled out all the stops when it came to styling — stripes were jauntily mixed with plaids and polka dots, menswear-inspired fedoras were tied with colorful ribbons, and models were painted with crosses, hearts, and other symbols, playing to a vibe of '60s-era protest chic. One print that carried through the collection was a large-scale geometric design; it was shown on wrap dresses, tie-neck blouses, skinny trousers, and even a slouchy jumpsuit, adding a fresh dose of tribal cool. Get the full breakdown below.
