Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood RTW Fall 2016
#ParisFashionWeek! Finally!!! After 25 years Dame Vivienne Westwood shared the name of her Label with husband Andreas Kronthaler. So from now on it’s Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood formerly known as Vivienne Westwood Gold Label. The RTW Fall collection is called “Sexercise”. The unisex collection was shown by male and female models, in my eyes that’s actually all that would stick to Sexercise theme. For me the better name would have been “the day d’Artagnan became a Buddhist nun”.
The name changed, the content is still classic Vivienne Westwood designs! Jackets, pantsuits and coats with large shoulders in metallic, plastic and wool. Asymmetric, loose fitted and draped trousers and skirts. We see gold and shades of beige and caramell, a strong black with metallics and white dots, a wide range of pastels of grey, baby pink and blue. Corsages, blood red velvets, horn buttons, a lot of mixed prints and patterns and the Westwood typical tartans. After all, I’m not a big Westwood fan, but I’m really a fan of the socks, all the knitted pieces, this floral-jacquard/tartan/mixed print coat and Arnaud Lemaire (holla sexy!!!!)!
