Vivienne Westwood Gold Label SS15

With a touch of magic, a feeling of fairy tales and a campaign to protect the planet, the Spring/Summer 2015 Gold Label collection tells an enchanting story. Inspirations include Frederick Worth, the “father of haute couture”.

Worth‘s influence can be seen in our silhouettes; particularly on dresses, skirts and the tailored pieces of the collection. With a similar aesthetic, the Dangerous Liaisons coat, from our AW 95/96 Gold Label show, has been re-visited in silk cotton taffeta with lace embroidery – adding to the historical feel.

Prints reference the Wallace Collection, our anti-fracking campaign and a harlequin pattern, and the hair and make-up was inspired by Victorian dolls and children. While the use of the fig leaf represents Adam and Eve, who Vivienne and Andreas play in a film for End Ecocide – which supports the protection of ecosystems. This campaign was the main message they wanted to communicate with this show.
