so rare ~ so sought after ~ such an iconic Westwood design


~ ENGLISH ECCENTRICS ~ RAGGED ARISTOCRAT ~

:**:

 ESSENCE:  ~ RAGGED ARISTOCRAT ~ VICTORIAN ~ REGENCY ~ PIRATE ~ BUCCANEER ~ ENGLISH HERITAGE ~ BRITISH ECCENTRICITY ~ FLAMBOYANT ~ ICONIC ~ UNUSUAL ~ RARE ~ SO SEXY ~ JUST DIVINE!!! ~  


 
OCCASION: Work, play, day or night ~ 
just for looking beautiful as you go about your everyday life ~


 DESCRIPTIONAn absolutely stunning and very unusual black, grey & brown striped patchwork jacket by iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood from her Anglomania collection ~ featuring a gorgeous rounded black velvety raw edged collar & lapels ~ with long black ties beneath the collar for tying at the neck for a high, close fitting style, or left hanging down for a more low-cut open v-neckline ~ wrap around style waist with ties at the sides for tying tight or loose depending on your desired style ~ if you tie right up, then you do get an amazing 'nipped in' waist look, accentuated by the bustle/panniers back and sides over hips, very sexy and flattering.....


~ Incredible patchwork effect design, with various patches of plain black, grey wool pinstripe & brown, cream & grey striped wool fabric, arranged in a patchwork effect, with frayed edges to create a disheveled, rugged look ~ full length sleeves with slightly puffed shoulders ~ on the right sleeve beneath the puffed shoulder detail is a band of exposed raw seaming with a further three rows of this raw seaming going down the sleeve to the black velvety cuff and this creates an unusually defined sleeve ~ The left sleeve has a row of thick black exposed stitching  that runs around the top of the sleeves, over the grey pinstripe shoulder, which changes beneath the top of the sleeve into the brown, grey and cream striped fabric to the cuff which is cinched up on the underside to create a slight point ~


 ~  The back of this jacket is just stunning also ~ with the left side in the pinstripe grey fabric & the right side in plain black ~ as you descend down the jacket the patchwork alternates into the brown, cream & grey striped fabric & diagonal grey pinstripes ~ from the waist the fabric begins to fan out to create the most incredible bustle style detailing ~ very victorian/regency inspired ~ it's just amazing!!!!  From the back view there is a definite bustle/ fishtail/fan tail effect ~ very flattering whilst being very sexy.....


~ This jacket is just so amazing!!! ~ so typically Westwood in design, mixing the old and new styles ~ Westwood is so famous for utilising the fashions of past eras and creating them into ultra modern pieces of fashion art.........With the very victorian style bustle jacket shape, that's drawn in at the waist to create that incredibly sexy "nipped in" waist look, and then fans out into a bustle effect over the bum, combined with the rawness of the textures & fabrics & the raw, frayed edges and exposed seaming and stitching it's just so stunning... literally perfection!!! Jacket is semi-lined ~ lined from under collar half way down back ~ and sleeves are lined also....please see note below on small repair to lining fabric......


Look fabulous with just about everything from jeans and a t ~ to haute couture! ~ Totally in love with this jacket!!! 


Great condition ~ HOWEVER PLEASE NOTE: my seamstress has made a small tidy repair to the lining fabric inside the inside of the sleeve just under armpit area.....doesn't affect jacket in any way at all and it's inside the sleeve and it's only on the lining, but thought i should mention it.......great quality fabrics ~ there is no fabric label, but the fabrics look and feel like a mixture of quite thick cottons, and different coloured wool fabrics.....

 HISTORY

~ VIVIENNE WESTWOOD ~

Without any formal training, Westwood has become an icon of the fashion world - twice winning British Designer of the Year and being awarded an OBE for her contribution to fashion.


Vivienne Westwood personifies the potent and subversive originality of British fashion. Her continual exploration ant reinterpretation of history, combined with a timeless individualism, has cemented her reputation as the UK's most culturally significant fashion designer. Her expansive body of work traces the socio-economic and cultural climate of Britain over the past four decades, and a cursory glance through her archive also highlights the paradox of her career; an ascent from teenage rebellion with her iconic punk inspired collections, through to luxury and decadence, and finally to her branch into new lines.


Westwood now produces five different collections; 

Anglomania, the collection which this jacket is from, is the celebration of all things British; 

Gold Label, her demi-couture line; Red Label is made for the studious, yet reckless younger lady; Man is Vivienne's men's collection, and finally her World's End collection, which contains her popular legendary styles from collections past.

Since starting out in 1969 with Sex Pistols manager Malcolm McLaren, Westwood has become increasingly interested in historical dress, and her first attempt at redefining an historical culture came with her much acclaimed Pirate collection. This was soon followed by Savages, Hobos, and Witches. In 1985 she explored the Victorian crinoline in her Mini-Crini collection and two years later she explored traditional British tailoring in Harris Tweed. This interest in traditional British themes led to her Anglomania collection of 1993, which included using a tartan that she designed.


Today Westwood continues to create clothes that are sexy, inventive and fresh, and believe me she is never one to disappoint!!  


This jacket is VERY DISTINCTIVE Westwood!!!


LUSCIOUS! xxx
