Although I really admire her and I know that her collection reached cult status especially in Japan. Fashion's 'beautifuls' are spending enormous amounts of money for vintage pieces which are treated almost like religious icons and I think, there are even special collector's magazines out which just deal with vintage Westwood- just amazing for a fashion brand!
Yet the label was always a bit to much for my taste. Brilliantly designed but some times I think there is too much drama going on, especially in regards to her men's fashion. But not this time- not for AW 2012. For this winter season Westwood created a collection which really is very much wearable yet still showing all the designers love for intricate patterns, asymmetry and fascinating& suprising ways of pattern cutting. Yet she managed this time to skin down her ideas to the essentials although still keeping a wide variety of VW staples from suits to jeans knits.
