It’s now time for some theatre plays, freaky characters and weird patterns. If you are in love with Shakespeare dramas and the creepy middle ages you might consider having a look at the new eccentric and funky Vivienne Westwood spring/summer 2014 collection unveiled just recently at Paris Fashion Week. All the duchesses, countesses and the other ladies from the royal court are revived on the eve of Halloween to give you more ideas to be outlandish and bizarre.
The asymmetric cuts, odd outlines and creepy shapes bewilder you for a moment and made you think that the witches from the British castles have a wedding or a party to get drunk and scare the whole city. The entire Vivienne Westwood show itself is a huge dramatic stage with strange and eerie characters that seem powerful and vigorous. Indeed, they’re the gothic pilgrims exiled from their home countries for predicting the future or the death of the king. Their muddy faces, torn and wrinkled dresses remind you of the chaotic way these adventurous souls have gone.
The designer used all kinds of materials to make the Vivienne Westwood spring/summer 2014 collection turbulent and choppy. The heavy ruffles, see-through tops and skirts, aristocratic parade gowns take you back to the pre-renaissance palaces, where you always feel the lively stir of luxurious life.
The designer starts the show with a weird apparel of a mannish shirt and a see- through green chiffon skirt. This look reminds you of a street beggar left out by everyone. The next arrival on the catwalk is the contrast of the previous one: a hot red extravagant gown would be absolutely charming and modern even nowadays. The ancient queens and princesses would be stunned to see this piece of art. The creamy classy jacket with a long white dress is quite a trendy and stylish outfit to wear on special occasions.
You can easily choose some of the dresses to wear on masquerades, homecoming parties or rock concerts, but on the whole the Vivienne Westwood spring/summer 2014 collection is not quite suitable to wear on streets and just stroll around.
