Vivienne Westwood Enlists Diverse Creatives for SS21 Lookbook
Featuring models, makeup artists, street performers and more.
Along with many other designers, Vivienne Westwood has unveiled her Spring/Summer 2021 collection virtually through a digital lookbook. This time around, the British name has tapped a diverse cast of creatives ranging from makeup artist Isamaya Ffrench to street performer Dott Cotton Clown to model the collection.
The campaign celebrates diversity through several collaborations including prints on the garments, as well as rugs and bags featured in the visuals. Musician and Westwood’s long-time friend Chrissie Hynde adds color to the garments with her original paintings, which support charities like Ahimsa Milk and Farms Not Factories. The graphics come to life on pieces like shorts and dresses, as well as matching sweats sporting asymmetrical details. More prints are developed by artist Anthony Newton, who has created drawings of trees for a trompe l’oeil effect. Elsewhere, the models are seen carrying bags made by Kenya’s Artisan Fashion and rugs that Westwood designed for The Rug Company.
With the aim to show only one collection a year, Westwood introduces versatile yet statement-making items that can be worn any season. The unisex range features key design details inspired by English tailoring as seen on pieces such as cardigans, tops and casual suit sets. The bold designs are mixed and matched, with a skirt paired with red sweatpants and a hooded jumpsuit worn with a plaid trench coat.
