The show had the coolest audience, which wore plenty of Westwood, of course.

This is one of my favourite collections of the season! Seriously wearable menswear with references to several trends and decades of british fashion: Glencheck, Tartan, 90s, Hooligan references, College Blousons, Sailor Jackets and traditional quilted jackets styled to 1920/30s Dandy hair and lipstick! This accentuation of the female side is what Vivienne Westwood writes in her invitation: "...young intellectuals. All ready for life + love + responsibility." This is the style for the modern, young men who merges masculinity, feminity, tradition, modernity, fun AND responsibility to a contemporary manhood. A re-definition of the male gender-role was overdue for long - I love the modern & versatile approach of Lady Westwood!

I`m in love with the new Vivienne Westwood Man!

What do you think?

I love Vivienne Westwood.
Most websites just show the catwalk looks. It's great to see behind the scenes and the inspiration. And I love to see the invites.

Wow, girl, you must be seriously exhausted after all this runway! And exhilarated of course. I'm afraid I don't like this collection. I like timeless and tailored menswear and I certainly don't like lipstick and flapper hair waves on men!

I love everything about the collection but the lipstick. It's so cool that you're going to all these shows. I hope to see more. Love the photos you took.

Love,
Heather

Yes indeed, totally wearable! The lipstick is a fun twist and it actually looks good on these guys. But then, I'm all for gender-bending anyways...

Cheers,

@Poet: I don`t perceive the looks as gender-"bending", rather as gender-role-modificating; modern men, that intregrate their feminine side without losing their masuculinity!

I`m currently Edgar Allan Poe`s horror stories - they are all about men surpressing the feminine side, which leads to fatal consequences.
