Vivienne Westwood Red Label

London: Vivienne Westwood’s signature asymmetric dishevelment was alive and well on the runway this season, an integral part of her wide-ranging Fall presentation. As expected, suiting was the standout here and Westwood crafted menswear pinstripes into relaxed little skirt suits and high-collar shirting, while her classic plaids turned up as feminine tapered trousers or wrapped cashmere vests. A series of wool separates in cool shades of blue and grey was also compelling, with fitted hourglass silhouettes and tonal layers. Draped jersey dresses and off the shoulder satin frocks had a certain charm, but from there the collection seemed scattered and flipped through everything from ikat to graphic t-shirts.—Nina Stotler
