SEEN was delighted to hear of the creative collaboration between the American mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato and Vivienne Westwood Couture. DiDonato will wear Vivienne Westwood’s designs on her forthcoming new tour and album of 15 powerful Baroque arias, entitled ‘War & Peace – Harmony through Music’.

To embody these themes, Vivienne Westwood has created two different, stunning ensembles: For ‘War’, DiDonato will wear a metallic corseted gown in gunmetal grey jacquard lurex, and a tar-like black sequin embroidered train, which can be detached during her performance for heightened drama. A smoky cape of black super-organza veils the gown, creating a gliding weightless effect for the singer.

For Peace, DiDonato will wear a Grecian-style corset, ethereal in a delicate, iridescent aluminium-foiled organza, teamed with a long tulle cape, also in aluminium organza, over-printed with a tranquil forest green dye.

Joyce DiDonato will be delighting audiences in London at the Barbican Centre, on 22nd November.
