This week’s post is a blast to the past.
Some time ago a friend sent me some scans of a semi porn kind of shoot & interview conducted in 430 Kings Rd when the shop was known as SEX. Continue reading
A lot of new items have been coming into Worlds End Shop recently.
Modelling for us we have Davide who comes from Venice & who is assistant designer for the Red Label collection here at Westwood. We love his tattoos. Thank you Davide.
All items in this post are exclusive to the Worlds End & all are made here in the UK.
The exceptions to this are the items of unisex knitwear which are made in Italy.
The toga dress & the t-shirts are made from organic cotton.
One of the new items is the double fronted kilt. This is made in a specially produced lightweight wool & comes in different lengths, a longer one for men & two shorter ones for women. Lelu models the shorter kilt in a previous post.
This kilt uses the ‘Alien’ system developed in the 2005 Gold Label ‘Propaganda’ collection. This system involves having an insert panel inside at the front waist which buttons up to support the kilt, leaving the visible waist free to hang loose & drape down.
Other new items are the Alien Coat & Alien Jacket. These have been made in new fabrics. The coat & the jacket have been made in the same wool as the earlier Clint Eastwood Bomber.
The ‘Who the Fuck Needs Art’ & ‘Fuck everybody except US’ Tees are now back in stock (the latter being very topical right now with the Climate Change Forum in progress as we speak in Paris).
Lastly we have the new Toga Dress (originally developed for the 1983 collection) which is unisex & has lots of ways to wear.
Photographed by Felix Cooper & styled by Carine Roitfeld, the December 2015 issue of Harpers Bazaar features a shoot entitled ‘Pirates & Princesses’ which styles Worlds End Shop items with other designer pieces…I hope you like them. Continue reading
Over this summer my Ben Westwood range has been available at the Vivienne Westwood Press Office. The collection had a good response & was used in three different fashion shoots in three different magazines ( CR Fashion Book, Seventh Man & Petrie). I thought that I would share these with you.
All of these items are available in Worlds End Shop. Continue reading
This last Tuesday it was really great to finally meet again with Mr Holly Johnson to do a new video interview outside Worlds End Shop, the previous of these having been with Mr Adam Ant.
As usual the traffic was noisy but Mr Johnson comes through loud & clear.
Due to a broken down bus being right outside the shop I could not shoot from my usual place across the street so we tried to improvise by going round the corner a bit. However this was not ideal, so we moved again & actually used the broken bus to shelter ourselves a bit from the road. A lot better.
Holly knew of the shop when it was called ‘Seditionaries’…….but I’ll let him do the talking.
16 minutes. Let it roll….
