Vivienne Westwood - Featured Designer for PARIS Fashion Week A/W 2013

Vivienne Westwood design has always been crazy and very different from usual designer wear.  This ready-to-wear collection was inspired by Illuminated Medieval Manuscripts. They are those old book pages with drawings. The color-scheme certainly matches the inspiration, and some motifs are similar to these manuscripts. To be honest, I thought that it may have been inspired by Zombie's too, since the make up for the models are all kind of gross and icky, while the garments are all drapey and dirty looking.

None of the looks are wearable on its own, but each garments are certainly edgy and they may be cool additions to one's wardrobe! I was a little shocked when I saw this collection. Even though she is known to be a bit out of the box and crazy, her "Red Label" tends to go on a bit safer side than this. This was an eye-opener and I admire how she executed such a complicated design. There are some looks that are beautiful and some that aren't on par as much, but in general, it was a striking collection that I would love to see again next season!

What do you think of her design?
