Sara wears the new Active Resistance Military Cap. Made in London!
“I am not a fashionista and I don’t intend to be one. I wear clothes that make me comfortable and happy. I chose Vivienne Westwood not only because of her genius designs but also for the things she promotes and fights for. I have now inherited her advice ‘Buy less – Choose well’. My choice includes the Slogan Square- and Squiggle shirts and I adore the Mountain hats too. These pieces make you feel you’re not just wearing something, but making a statement as well. It is not to everyone’s cup of tea, but hey, this is what makes me unique. My favourite Westwood shop has got to be Worlds End. It’s another world of its own filled with special things. Lisa Reynolds, the shop manager, makes you feel welcome and want to come back again and again. Vivienne once said ‘Fashion is about eventually being naked’, but for now I’ll keep my hat and towel.”

The Idea of a destroyed hat was used in several collections for example in “Prince Charming” AW10/11 and just 3 days ago in the latest Red Label show.
You can buy the same hat as used in the show at Worlds End.
But you can also make one yourself. Just find a classic men’s hat and tear it on all the major edges. Then find a nice piece of fabric and drape it around as a hatband.
Just use the fabric raw edge then everything works well together.
You might need to secure the hatband with a few hand stitches for it to stay in place. If you like a rough look, you could even apply some paint in a contrast colour to give it a special finish.
We wanted to show you our favourite Shawl. It was designed for Gold Label +5 collection and has been so popular that we repeated it for the 4th time already.
The Shawl comes in 2 designs, measures 320 x 75cm, and is made in Scotland from 100% pure lambs wool. Vivienne suggests wearing it on top of an oversized man’s jacket. This creates a very nice spontaneous look and keeps you warm. DIY / Battle Shawl – £195.00
