Westwood's unusual silhouettes were as omnipresent as ever throughout the collection, from her wide-leg drop-crotch shorts through to her boxy peak-shouldered jackets, exaggerated proportions and super-high heels (shown this season in red leopard-print) have become her trademark. Prints are another thing that she does so well, and this season she dabbled with a range of florals ranging from tropical painterly florals through to smudged inky-black roses. Slogan totes were a reminder of Viv's political leanings, but this presentation seemed to be more a celebration of the designer's eclectic tastes than a full-blown political statement (unlike her Red Label collection).
The full-length gowns were stunning too, often realised in light tulle with tighly-corseted bustiers or with exaggerated full skirts, creating a sense of drama reminiscent of Westwood's historic 'Anglomania' collection. The collection, overall, felt like an amalgamation of everything that Westwood does so well - incorporating various eras in history, various countries and various cultures and injecting her trademark burst of eccentricity to create clothing that is intelligent, desirable and (most importantly), a whole lot of fun to wear.
