Witchy, bizarre, unusual and, yes, also freakish – this is how you can describe the new Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2014 collection launched at London Fashion Week. It’s a pity the collection wasn’t introduced for fall; otherwise you wouldn’t worry what to wear on Halloween. The creepy looks and eerie combinations of mixed hair with strange makeup take you back to some zombie movies or the Twilight series.
The imaginative designer is inspired from Hans Christian Andersen’s frightful story of “The Red Shoes” though “The Insidious” or all the other horror movies might have influenced to come up with the odd outlines as well. The sinister outfits and mischievous looking models are fantastically innovative, and show you the fashioner’s unlimited capacity of imagination and artistry.
As we can see silk is going to be the leading material for upcoming spring. Lily Cole uses the stylish fabric to give her looks a modern pinch of classiness though it looks hardly compatible with the scary faces and weird hairstyles.
There is a quite imaginative combination of various styles in the Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2014 collection: a dark blue classy coat famous in the industrial 18th century with tight yellow pants gives the model a sailor’s look. It could have also been used while filming the Titanic. A silk black dress with a nice oval cut and huge colorful flowers in front might have been an option for Cinderella’s step sisters to wear on the royal ball. In this way they would definitely be more noticeable and dramatic.
Julia Roberts would be undoubtedly cute to wear the black silk light coat over the red shorts and dark blue shirt in the “Pretty woman”. The blue hat would complete her captivating look.
One of the most elegant outfits of the show is the black suit worn with red shoes that will totally brag attention to your original and eccentric taste of fashion. Lady Gaga might also probably be one of the biggest fans of the peculiar and spooky Vivienne Westwood Red Label spring/summer 2014 collection.
