PARIS…Vivienne Westwood’s place among the fashion elite is a bit different than many of her contemporaries, due to her storied history in the industry as well as her activist leanings. Due to her recent use of Pamela Anderson in ad campaigns the F/W 09 show was even more eagerly anticipated by many, and Westwood did not disappoint. Her wild designs took the form of layered prints including camo pants, leggings and large overcoats. For juniors, this mix can be deconstructed to reveal playful textures, draping and a bright color palette, tempered by shots of black and white. Consider Westwood a constant inspiration for energetic fashion.
