Don’t Look for a Vivienne Westwood Boutique in NYC Anytime Soon

April 6, 2011 • Fashion


Tell us how you really feel, Vivienne Westwood!

The famous designer chose to have her only statewide store in Los Angeles rather than New York because… she's not too fond of New Yorkers, it seems.

"I don’t actually like New York," Westwood told W magazine. "New York people are a bit stuck up and self important, and think that just the fact that they live in New York makes them better than anybody else. Sometimes there, you feel trapped by the concrete, and for me that means being trapped by the myth of Superman and American foreign policy and all these dreadful things that have done so much harm in the world. There’s just so much pressure there; it’s not nice."

It's not all bad though! Westwood does like the art! "I love the Met. They’ve got such an amazing, wonderful collection of Impressionist and Chinese art."

Ouch. So does this mean we won't seeing a Westwood boutique opening up in SoHo anytime soon? Or maybe that Chicago is looking pretty good right about now?
