Vivienne Westwood Brings her Men’s Show Back to Britain

Fashion has always embraced change with fervour – how else to keep it fresh and ahead of the moment? So it is with delight that SEEN notes the return of designer Vivienne Westwood to the catwalks of London; she has traditionally held her menswear line, MAN Label, in Milan. And like Gucci and Burberry, she will now display her womenswear line, RED label, together with the menswear.

Fashion has always embraced change with fervour – how else to keep it fresh and ahead of the moment? So it is with delight that SEEN notes the return of designer Vivienne Westwood to the catwalks of London; she has traditionally held her menswear line, MAN Label, in Milan. And like Gucci and Burberry, she will now display her womenswear line, RED label, together with the menswear.

Many labels are breaking away from the traditional Fashion Week catwalks, sometimes showing at different times of the year, in unexpected venues, or are making their garments available to consumers right off the catwalks. Vivienne Westwood’s first newly merged collection will be shown next January as part of the London Collections, while Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood will continue to be shown in Paris as part of their Fashion Week.

Delicate spiderweb knitwear, giant IOU lettering, vivid print trousers, fringed shrugs and twisted pinstripe suits showcase Vivienne Westwood’s unashamed punk spirit. Her bold take on the thriving inventiveness of London’s style-savvy consumers will in turn feed into next year’s mainstream fashion trends.seen london 1177588
