OK, so the mother of punk isn’t shocking anymore. In fact, she seems rather tame in comparison to other shows this season and frankly I’m immune. Vivienne Westwood still drapes, swirls, twists and snaps fabrics with opposed patterns and material, but her expected style of exaggeration is mild. For instance, corsets were on many runways for Fall ’07, nothing new there. Shoulders are broadening again, ditto.
I didn’t care for the caveman doodles, weird hats, blue with yellow and the bunched up bag lady looks, but adored her metallic ruby pieces (especially the patent boots) and massive plaid prints. You either love or hate her clothes, but you have an opinion one way or the other. Whichever one it is, you are never disappointed.
