GETTING WESTWOOD

Evening Style MerchantsVivienne Westwood's head of propaganda got me in and showed me her Spring Summer ’18 men's bits. Loved V.W.’s show back in LFW Mans Dem (click) so thought should give it a proper shufty. Much was too, too mental for my men/boys, but did also find loads of stuff that simply must show you too. Like this killer overcoat below, which is current AW' 17 gear. Wanna hear more?

Bang into the oversized overcoat that Viv' based on an image of the child Princess Elisabeth. With insanely acute lapels, executed divinely in mad-substantial Harris Tweed the thing is so  wicked on. Works on both sexes, too*. (not at once mind). 

Killer classic meets contemp’ cut with super-modern gender blur deployment. Killer. Want one. £1300

Boots are worth a second glance, too, no?

Did really like hemp suit (part of campaign for hemp) with very strong shoulder and peak lapels. Also Viv’s own tartan kimono jacket, and a Kimono jacket in hemp. The 100% sustainable cotton jacket with off the shoulder shoulder line style and suitably giant peak lapels was very imposing and interesting too. Like her sartorial shape a lot.

Spring Summer 2018 Mens- as part of hemp project- Loving Vivs lapel and shoulder statements. Bless him, he's gotta work on his eye-shadow technique- but its good to start and be bold, right?

Viv’s own tartan in kimono jacket form (right). Also did a Kimono jacket in hemp.

However, it really kicked off for me across the road in men’s shop where tested out some current AW17 commersh’ stuff and found it to be ace.

This navy D.B. blazer, with ‘slightly leg of mutton’ sleeve has brilliant, distinct shape, and only £900, ffs. Which I think is a snip, comparatively, right? Anyway, does anyone remember the VW Southbank Show where she talked bout "John's done a slightly leg-of-mutton sleeve here.." was fashion student gold back then #thelateeighties

Visit the shop on Conduits- its double good.

Current silk ties caught my attention, too, and doppio-gorg’ printed shirt from Andreas K collection.  Other bits from SS18 that am diggin’ include the tribute to Versace print shirt, and finding  Western collar thing, too- (are Western collars gonna be a thing?)

 

Have stuck this up right away, so likely got some errors in it #Chaos. Really feeling Viv's stuff, thanks so much for getting me in dear Miss.McCuaig. It was my kind of style climate. So, fancy some music, pagans?
Rip Rig & Panic?

 
 

Stubbs out.

* numerous pieces from Viv's collecitons work across two of the main sexes, and are marked according. Double modern.
