Aside from all theatrics, Dame Vivienne Westwood really knows how to cut a dress to fit the female body. Her fall Red Label Collection, which walked on Sunday, featured plenty of examples, constructed with Westwood’s signature romantic draping, ruching, and Victorian punk spirit. Splashes and smears of color on the models’ faces, large-scale zebra print, and shaggy chunky knits suggested a beautiful chaos, but what really won us over was the menswear-inflected tailoring. Double breasted blazers and chalk-striped trousers were office-ready, but the soft grey topper from the opening look (amped up with rounded, oversized, two-tone lapels and black pocket flaps) would double as the perfect power coat.
