If you can rely on Vivienne Westwood for one thing, it’s using her fame for a cause. Her press notes immediately implore some environmental action instead of explaining a thing about the collection itself: whatever’s on the runway matters as a vehicle for a message.
This time the message was anti-fracking. If you’re not familiar with the dangers of fracking, I’ll leave you to Google it for yourself. If you do so, the fact that I’ve mentioned it means Westwood’s purpose has not gone unfulfilled. The press notes have served their anterior motive.
As for the clothes? Westwood’s fall / winter 2014 menswear lineup started out somber and grey and turned to precious metal, dug from the earth like her environmental message. The tailored outfits were the best, a mustard-yellow overcoat worn with a bow-tie or a rich blue double breasted coat and suit. Painted hair was futuristic and doll-like as a soundtrack of Woodkid’s war drums matched the boys on, super heros or super villains, depending on your imagination.
