Outfit:Savages Summer


I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now, as always things get in the way, but I do like to get the chance to share older pieces from my wardrobe. The top and culottes are from the 1982 Savages collection by Vivienne Westwood & Malcolm McLaren. The fabric might be reminiscent to those of you old enough to remember the 80s as the cheesecloth which pot-towels used to be made of. You can wear it and dry off the dishes on it at the same time, practical!

 Ben managed to find a great video of the collection on the runway which you can see on the Worlds End blog DSC_2161mDSC_2175m DSC_2180m DSC_2192m


 Here is Vivienne wearing the same outfit in Worlds End and some of the other characteristic Savages prints. It only just occurred to me having the photos side by side we also have the same colour hair here!

Last time I wore my Savages jumper was at London Fashion Week last year – or was it the year before? Either way its one of my favourite collections and I love seeing pieces of it crop up here and there. You can still get the Apache print Pirate tops at Worlds End, as for the rest of it well you would have to hit up the vintage auctions!

  1. savages! how very cool, your look and the show. like the ginger but was also quite a fan of your black phase now seeing those pics again :)) godwina, x.
    p.s. and yes, please do share ‘older pieces from your wardrobe’ as the current collections lack a bit of ‘viv’ imo!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this outfit and the amazing viv history behind it. The fashion show looks like the worlds funnest fashion show that ever was!
