LONDON: VIVIENNE WESTWOOD RED LABEL F/W 2009

Along with House of Holland and Topshop, Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label runway presentation is easily one of the most highly anticipated.

Westwood rarely disappoints and this season – despite my being biased against Westwood ever since the designer enlisted Pamela Anderson for her advertising campaign – London’s queen of fashion once again delivered with Westwood signatures.

More wearable than recent Westwood collections, the inspiration this season came from naughty boarding school girls and wicked headmistresses.

The inspiration translated into a dark color palette (though there a few pops of – fittingly – red), stripes, plaid, fitted blazers, pants and skirts, asymmetry, corsetry, and over the knee boots.
