Vivienne Westwood Spring/Summer 2016 Milan

The collection the British designer presented in Milan was unmistakably Vivienne Westwood. All the elements of her signature style were present in the lineup — the rebellious attitude, witty sense of irony and audacity.These translated into a collection that is understandable only once one knows the codes of the house. So there were teeny-tiny swimming briefs on the catwalk, as well as the rustic tunics, infused with a primitive spirit, she always inserts into her collections. There was more as well: This season, she delivered an array of her signature lightweight sweaters which look romantic with their loose fit and shaded colors, as well as oversize suits worked in a range of classic men’s patterns, which paid homage to the British tailoring tradition. Sartorial blazers were also matched with track pants, including a style worked in an arty pattern offering a delicate take on the classic camouflage motif. As she’s proven for almost four decades, Westwood occupies her own universe.
