Last Man Standing

Vivienne_Westwood Dangerous_Animal

Ever been to the zoo?
Ever seen a wildlife program?
If you have,then you might be familiar with the terms ‘Endangered Species’ & ‘Dangerous Animal’.
However I don’t suppose that you ever thought of applying these terms to human beings.
‘Dangerous Animal’ is not too difficult to recognize in ourselves. We have shot & murdered nearly every large animal on the planet & the ones left will be gone soon. The smaller creatures we have just deprived of home & food. The oceans we are poisoning.
However in our hubris we have failed to pay attention to the fact that we also are supported by the ecosphere & ecology of this planet & that pretty soon, as the natural ecosystems are destroyed & the world starts to get HOT due to climate change, we are going to find ourselves in a place we did not expect. On the ‘Endangered Species’ list (we’ll be the last ones).
Two new prints have been drawn by Vivienne & they are now both in Worlds End shop.
‘Dangerous Animal’ is on a new gingham, squiggle style, long sleeve top, worn by Jamie
‘Endangered Animal’ is on a sleeveless version of the same top, in plain black & is worn by both Jamie & Freya. The borders of both neck & sleeve holes on this top are twisted & pulled to give the asymmetric dynamic.

  1. Dear Ben Westwood,
    this is a great site. These shirts are very beautiful. We love animals!
    …. beautiful fox has a heart and soul. She looks in the eyes of the hunter who shoots. She was wounded. That’s sad. She does not know how to say ‘No!’. Even before re-hunter shooting that ubijeri, her sad eyes say, “No, you’re a man, you have a heart! You got kids? You want me to take my leather coat. But my fur is no longer beautiful. I’m old. My kids waiting for me. and when I am dead, my children will be unhappy. My children will cry for a long time … ”
    Greeting. V
    My English is not good. But honestly.

  2. Sorry there is a mistake in my comment:
    ” And before re-shooting the hunter to KILL (Instead of ‘UBIJERI’ ‘), her sad eyes say. No, you’re a man, you have a heart! You got kids?…
    Greeting. V.
