Vivienne Westwood’s Spring 2015 collection was a dramatic contemplation of the vastness of human culture and decay. The show opened with bias cut dresses in luxurious fabrics, futuristic bonnets, and exaggerated and smeared doll-like makeup, reminiscent of a post-apocalyptic Jane Austen novel. Throughout the show, looks fell into one of two categories: there was the hardened Amazonian warrior in earth toned dresses and laceup boots, and the lady in high-low hemlines, draped colorful silk and taffeta, and hyper-feminine, floral basket hats. The show closed with a Gaia-like figure in a Hellenistic voluminous white gown, a nod to the beautiful and eternal.
