Shaker Aamer Interview

On the 30th October & after 5000 days plus of unjust detention in the inhuman & soulless American Naval Base Guantanamo, Shaker Aamer was finally freed & flown back to his home & family in Britain.
Shaker’s until recent ordeal must have been ‘beyond’ dreadful & it must be very strange & surreal for him to be free.
As usual there are mixed messages from the press & public regarding his ‘reputation’, his religion & his future here in the UK & so I feel that it is very important especially regarding the present world situation to show that the people of Britain stand for true justice & equality under it & that Shaker Aamer, an innocent man detained for 14 years is truly made welcome here.
Above is the first interview with Shaker since his release, filmed for BBC’s Victoria Derbyshire program & released on the 14th December.
An hour & a half long it is fascinating to hear his story.
Quite simply it is the story of a sane man in a completely insane environment.
& don’t forget, there are still 107 detainees in that place..

Vivienne Westwood Worlds End Shop

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.
