Vivienne Westwood showcased her unisex AW21 collection at London Fashion Week. This collection’s inspiration is Daphnis and Chloe, a Rococo painting by French painter François Boucher. The brand, having been associated with sustainability for over ten years now, used upcycled deadstock, viscose, organic silks, and newly sourced recycled denim. Over 90% of the collection was made with low environmental impact materials.
Westwood stated that she intended it “to create clothes that last, timeless, that you can wear with your favourite pieces of your wardrobe year after year.”
The collection itself is vibrant with different patterns and prints like gingham, stripes, herringbone, and of course, the print of the painting, which was made using an eco-friendly printing system. Westwood used timeless garments and designs, which we can see being reused in the future seasons.
