Fashion house VIVIENNE WESTWOOD unveiled their Spring Summer 2022 “Save Our Souls” collection presented during the ongoing London Fashion Week. Taking inspiration from the sea and the Spring Summer 1998 ‘Tied To The Mast’ collection,
“I have a plan 2 save planet. We don’t accept government destruction. Do what we say: “I demand government cooperation, Save Our Souls, SOS.” Stop Climate Change, Stop WAR ” War production is the biggest polluter. Stop Arms production, Close the Factories, Stop Arms Sales!”
Commissioning and coordinating fabrics, recycling and reusing waste and using special wool from regenerative farming, the collection’s carbon footprint is reduced to the minimum. Buy Less, Choose Well, Make it Last – is the motto of the collection.
“I was tied to the mast and the clothes underwent a sea change. On a sailing ship when the tempest arose, everything had to be tied down or be washed away; the women and children were brought on deck and tied to the mast for safety of their lives as the sea engulfed them.”– Vivienne Westwood.
Vivienne Westwood looked to the English Couturier Redfern whose work began in Cowes in 1849. Inspired by the nautical theme, and English pirates, the collection revives the age of the first Queen Elizabeth.
