For this season Vivienne Westwood started by looking at Daphnis and Chloe, 1743, a painting by French Rococo painter François Boucher, which is housed in the Wallace Collection, London.

It became the main print for the season - with the sky and pastoral scenes reflected through the colours and fabrics. www.wallacecollection.org

The unisex collection is divided into several design stories or capsules – mixing classic British tailoring and iconic archive styles, redesigned to balance new silhouettes with classic pieces. The collection features our favourite traditional wool fabrics – tartans, herringbone & King of Wales check, designed alongside newly sourced recycled denim, forest positive viscose, organic silks and innovative eco printing systems. They aim to make clothes which last, which are timeless, that you can style with favourite pieces from your wardrobe - and wear year in year out.

Vivienne Westwood is proud to announce that for Autumn-Winter 2021/22 over 90% of the collection is made from materials that have a reduced impact on the environment.
