I just received this e-mail from Murray who is back from a trip to America where he attended a friend’s wedding. Murray is the other Westwood employee who is involved on the World’s End shop project here at the Battersea Studio along with Johannes & myself. Murray was previously designing the Red label collection but he has been working at Westwood since the ‘early days’ in 1987. Previous to that he had been the designer for ‘Boy’ in the Kings Rd as well as running his own clothing label with his then partner.
Thank you Murray.
‘Hello Ben – I am just sorting out pictures and stuff and I found this picture of my best Friend Mr Michael Allen that I took in the Mission San Francisco on the 6th June 2013.
He’s proudly wearing a limited edition ‘composite print square t-shirt. Michael especially likes the ‘Who the Fuck need Art ‘message, but everyone finds a favourite once they start looking at all Vivienne’s AR graphics !
These are made in limited runs of 12 and will be made as and when the studio has time.
They are exclusively for Worlds End and are very special indeed!
May be it’s a nice little thing to put on the Blog
Vivienne would like you to come to the demonstration outside the US embassy, Grosvenor Square at 2pm on Saturday 1st June - in support of Bradley Manning- ahead of his trial which begins on Monday 3rd June. Bradley Manning, a 25 year old US intelligence analyst, faces life in prison for sharing a video of a US helicopter attack that killed 11 civilians and wounded two children in Baghdad with the Wikileaks website.
He’s also been charged with blowing the whistle on the “Iraq War Logs”, the “Afghan Diaries”, the “Gitmo Files” and embarrassing US State Department cables. He exposed war crimes – he has not committed a crime. He’s been charged with telling us the truth. Bradley went before a US court and admitted he did pass the information to Wikileaks in the interests of the public. He couldn’t believe that we were doing these things in countries we were supposed to be protecting
