Punk is Dead…Long Live Punk

So I just heard that my brother Joe is going to burn his collection of Punk memorabilia in disgust at the mainstream ‘acceptance’ of the movement, in particular because of the event later this year to ‘celebrate’ 40 years since the single ‘Anarchy in the UK’ was released.
I completely agree with him & think that his act is completely in the spirit of Punk.
The mainstream hated Punk when it happened & it still would hate it if it happened today as it confronted & held up a mirror to its hypocrisy. The hypocrisy that is still here.
Punk was anti-establishment & Joe’s act is to make sure that they know it still is.
Punk is not about the old songs, clothes & look. Punk is an attitude & wherever it exists today it does not look the same. Punk does not have a uniform.
If you want to be a Punk then fight for justice in the world & that is dangerous, like Punk was at the time.

‘The Masque of the Red Death’

Vivienne Westwood

Politicians ARE Criminals! – I am not just referring to the petty pilfering that the recent expenses scandal uncovered or even the policy changes that they make whilst in Government benefitting corporations that the MP in question gets to work for after their term in office (if they are not already working for them whilst in office). I am referring to murder which most people think is one of the worst crimes. Continue reading

Special Pieces in Worlds End

Worlds End Shop

Keziah (see Kizzy post) & Johannes recently helped us by modelling some of the new Worlds End special pieces in the shop right now.
These include a makeover of the Infinity Poncho from Gold Label AW14.
For the first time this is available in a men’s size and is printed with Vivienne’s hand-drawn Climate-Economy graphic.
The Poncho is made from 100% Austrian Loden & can be worn as an outer piece like a heavy jumper.

The Propaganda Shoulder Bag is part of a series of re-makes from the AW05 Propaganda Collection.

Worlds End Shop

The Giant Tooth Jewellery is exclusive to King’s Road. Johannes’ tattoo is amazing with it of course…

Lastly we are very proud to introduce new t-shirt colours made using 100% vegetable dye.
The colours of these change/fade slightly with every wash and are not as even as would normally be expected, but that’s what makes them special & they feel amazing.
Available with different prints.
All garments shown are made in the UK.

Lets Dance

Raymond Mallentjer

Dear Lise, Dear Ben,
I am an Antwerp based choreographer.
For my latest choreography Atmosphere I used some Climate Revolution T-Shirts from Worlds End for the costumes.
This piece was a commission by Europalia Turkey & I worked together with four fabulous Istanbul based dancers.
I just wanted to share some pictures with you and I wanted to say THANK YOU to Vivienne Westwood and Worlds End for the ongoing inspiration!
Best wishes.
