Vivienne Westwood pop-up Autumn Winter 2018-2019 Pop-Up at Selfridges London, UK.

Vivienne’s freedom fighters are giving a clear call to action
With a design record spanning over forty years, Vivienne Westwood is now recognized as a global brand and Westwood herself as one of the most influential fashion designers, and activists, in the world today.
The Vivienne Westwood pop up launched at British luxury department store Selfridges London within theDesigner Studio on 3 is an exclusive space designed around Westwood’s Autumn-Winter 2018/19 collection and message.
Vivienne Westwood is one of the last independent global fashion companies in the world. At times thought provoking, this brand is about more than producing clothes and accessories. Westwood continues to capture the imagination, and raise awareness of environmental and human rights issues.
The pop-up is inspired by an army base, with surplus army lockers, emblazoned with Vivienne’s Climate Revolution graphics – a vision of her army, fighting for a free world economy, returning victorious from war against giant corporations and governments who serve themselves over the people and the planet.
Military silhouettes, Harris Tweed tartan and regimental camouflage tones run throughout the collection. Including bright red Melton outerwear, camouflage print in tailoring, shirts and dresses, as well as unisex knitwear in hemp – the most sustainable and body-friendly fabric. Saville row style shirting in colourful folk
stripes, and for evening, an iridescent hammered black silk 18th century style corset.
The pop-up is open until Sunday 9th September 2018, at Selfridges London Designer Studio, located on the 3rd floor.
