Andreas Kronthaler, Vivienne Westwood ‘s husband, extols a new femininity in its SS22, making the British brand closer to the new fashion-loving generation.
We all know Vivienne Westwood for her subversive aesthetic. Between punk and new wave, her iconic corsets have conquered everyone. However, for this SS22 collection, the designer has taken a break. As an assistant, Vivienne starred in the front row of her own fashion show, which took place at the “Garage Amelot” in Le Marais.
Her husband, heading the creative direction, has been able to build the Westwood imaginary properly based on the fundamental pillars of the firm, deploying a collection that exudes freshness and a different energy. As if it were a new beginning for the brand, Andreas Kronthaler bets on a unisex and sustainable collection. In it, draping and impossible shapes are not an obstacle but a spectacle for the eyes.
Fabrics reclaimed from surplus stock give shape to innovative silhouettes, while organic cotton takes over several pieces in the collection. Boots that become suspender pants, impossible black and white bridal looks and an asymmetrical white corset dress overlaid with black tulle with the stars of the show.
When we first look at it, the collection may seem misleading and disjointed; but it only takes a few more minutes to realize that Vivienne Westwood SS22 by Andreas Kronthaler is nothing more than the representation of all tastes in one collection. Leaving no one out.
