Vivienne Westwood Red Label

Spring-Summer 2015 – The classical style of tailoring seemed to be the only aspect of the collection that each outfit modelled had in common. From floral playsuits and body-suits to oversized pinstriped skirt suits, every piece of this collection was individual. As a whole, the collection sought to emphasise the female silhouette, whether it be by cinching in the waist with a slim leather belt or the presence of a plunging neckline. Through the show, the collection moved from smart suits, to casual summer dresses, to elegant floor length gowns, highlighting how wonderfully wacky Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label is.

As mentioned about the individuality of each piece in this collection, hair-style, make-up, accessories and shoes were similarly unique, in a variety of colours and styles. Big, bold red lips frequented the catwalk, as did bright face-paint and charcolled eyes. There was nothing subtle about the collection or how it modelled: the show was in your face and exaggerated. Smililarly, hair was styled in messy buns at the top of the hair, brushed out loosely, or slicked back into a ponytail.
