There’s a reason that Vivienne Westwood is known as the grand damne of runway kookiness and her spring show – stuffed with more themes than Disneyland showed
why. Cowboy hats, mummy masks, tutu skirts, grand gowns and giant chandelier earrings made it difficult to discern whether we were looking at polished ingénues or disheveled chamber maids. Add to that the models hair (and faces)
that were smudged in paint, and you begin to have an idea of the multitude of creative influences stoking Ms. Westwood this season. Designing by the proverbial 'kitchen sink' meant that we saw fabrications as diverse as woodsman plaids, brocade matched with pajama striping, vertical circus stripes, and sheer blue plastic overlays which gave a clear view of the pop arty designs worn underneath.
