Torn Hat

Torn-Hat-Vivienne-Westwood-Worlds-EndThe 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.

Tracey Trainer

Tracey-trainer-Vivienne-Westwood-Worlds-EndNamed after Tracey Emin this shoe is a variation of an elevated “Hammer Head Sneaker” from 1982 – Savage collection.
The original used to have 3 coloured stripes on the side. When we developed the current version in 2003, Adidas stopped us using the 3 stripe design. That’s why it has 4 stripes today. They are available in skin colour as shown, also in khaki canvas/coloured stripes, and black leather/black stripes.

Tracey Trainer, made in England – £365.00

Worlds End from far East

Vivienne-Worlds-EndWe are impressed! Thank you Hunan for sending us your drawings.
We must admit this is very different from the way we work here. Often people are surprised about how little we draw. Most of the Westwood designs are developed directly in fabric on the dummy. All drawings and illustrations are made afterwards when the garments are fully finished. We use drawings just as a communication device, not so much as a design tool.
