I first met Andy in 1987 (our girlfriends at the time lived with each other). He was a gardener then. Continue reading
You might have noticed the new DIY section by now. We want to inspire and encourage you to make things yourself. Stephen has sent us the first reply with a picture of the drape shirt he made. To make this shirt you need a little experience. The crown is very easy to make.
“Here’s my version of the drape shirt I made from the pattern I downloaded from the Worlds End blog, I used a really crisp shell cloth which drapes beautifully and I even used up some old brown Westwood buttons to finish. I’m a firm believer in DO IT YOURSELF and make about 45% of my own clothes because I work as a pattern cutter, so I'm used to sampling and sewing toiles. The rest of my wardrobe is about 50% Vivienne Westwood and the rest is thrifed, I really appreciate how Vivienne cuts her cloth from twisted fly’s on trousers to off centre necks on shirts and tops!”
This is another style from our remake of Vivienne’s favourite dresses from last summer’s Gold Label collection. It’s a real summer piece based on the spiral cutting principal, which dominated SS12. An easy thing for your next beach holiday. Balloon Dress in cotton voile, garment washed, one size, £290.00
“This is my favourite dress, the Shirtwaister. I have it in cherry red too and intend on getting it in the new lipstick pink colour next. I am also wearing my tan Bag boots and Army belt. The blog is a great idea so we can see all the new things at Worlds End. I really like how the Worlds End pieces are only available in the shop, it makes them much more special. I share my own personal style on my blog www.fashionpearlsofwisdom.co.uk and it is great that other fans can now share how they style things up on here. There is a lot of inspiration. Love to Lisa, Andy and the team.”
Thank you Natalie for sending us your picture. The “Shirtwaister” is by far our most popular dress at Worlds End. The cut is genius; only very few easy-to-wear dresses give you such a silhouette. Try it on when you are in the area next time. Shirtwaister Dress, designed in 2008, available in sizes 10-16, £295.00
Thank you Hunan and Ta nuki for sending us your pictures!
We like the styling very much. What’s so good about it is that it’s very spontaneous. Even though this is all Westwood, the ideas used here have a lot of DIY potential. For example wearing an oversized shirt like a dress, painting garments in children’s style, or using a nice piece of fabric as a scarf.
Alessandro wears a full Alien Suit, a vintage Apache (Squiggle) Shirt, a John Bull Hat, and Hammerhead Shoes.
Apart from the Hat and the Alien Jacket, these items are not available at present.
Still we wanted to share this beautiful picture with you. Thanks Alessandro for sending it in.
A men’s version of the Hammerhead Shoe is in preparation and we’ll let you know as soon as they arrive.
