Interview: Vivienne Westwood – Menswear Spring/Summer 2015 Collection in Milan in Milan Fashion Week: Men’s SS15
At Vivenne Westwood, the new masculine collection centres around the fate of pigs.At Vivienne Westwood, collections are always a pretext to an important message or the defense of a cause. This season, the designer duo condemns the fate of pigs and farming conditions, supported by the Tracy Worcester documentary. So it is no surprise to find messages written on t-shirts. Numerous prints mixed together are added to the collection and knitwear is important, rendered so thin that it is almost transparent. Of course, the sartorial suit is very present, but with unstructured jackets and trousers rolled up over the calves. This wardrobe is easy to wear and informal; a jacket is slung carelessly over one shoulder, teamed with a straw top hat. The show ends with a more youthful, underground look, composed of leggings, soft fringed tees and baggy Bermudas, in mismatched colours and prints.
