THEMATIC LAYERING
London: Vivienne Westwood attended her F/W 13 menswear show (staged on a loading dock of Harrod’s) wearing a “I am Julian Assange” t-shirt, a sentiment which represented one of the many themes she explored this season. Amidst an industrial apocalypse set, the Westwood presentation included urban dandies in classic cutaway overcoats and pleated trousers, monochrome modern military garb, layered athletic wear and Saville row three-piece suits. A typical Westwood grab bag, the inspirations were broad, but the takeaway must-haves arrived in force, from tapered jersey sweatpants and colorblocked hoodies to double-breasted trench coats and graphic head-to-toe patterns.—Nina Stotler
