Eagerly awaited, Vogue broke the news of Vivienne Westwood’s new made-to-order and couture bridal collections landing recently. I don’t have loads to say about these, other than that they are so wonderfully Westwood.
The collection encapsulates classic Westwood; directional layers, edgy cuts, biased nips and emphasized tucks, with just the right amount of pretty on the side to put a bridal spin on some of her trademark styles and silhouettes. The messy tulle makes a nice anomaly to the image reel.
Ever wanted a Sex and City wedding, or better, a Carrie Bradshaw dress? Look no further. The first dress below (and title image) is a very wearable version of the first Carrie wedding dress when she was supposed to marry Big at the New York Public Library. And it somehow doesn’t look a day out of date, even though Carrie’s version is now nearly 10 years old! (I know right, 2008?! Seriously!)
If you have the money, it’ll be a wise investment – even just on the off chance you might get to meet Viv.
The Long and Short of It
Not my style but Worth a Look:
Texture Meets Appliqué
I’m picturing these in wedding photos with killer heels and a leather biker jacket. The queen of cool does it again.
