Mode Homme et Femme. The Sex Pistols - Images. Vivienne Westwood The Queen Of Punk. L'aventure de Vivienne Westwood débute en 1971, lorsqu'elle ouvre une boutique à Londres avec son partenaire Malcom Mc Laren.

Vivienne Westwood The Queen Of Punk

Boutique qui changera successivement de noms : passant par "Let it Rock" pendant la période hippie ou encore "Too Fast To Live Too Young To Die", avant de devenir "Sex", la fameuse boutique de mode Punk. Dans cette boutique, elle expose et vend ses créations. Elle va même jusqu'à habiller les New York Dolls ou encore les Sex Pistols, dont son mari Malcom McLaren était le manager et contribuera à répandre le style punk avec son maquillage outrancier et ses coiffures très caractéristiques. Three in a Crowd. What Courtney Wore… This is really funny: Courtney Love has participated with some friends to create a website showing all the outfits she wears.

Three in a Crowd

She’s not the author of www., but she sends her outfits by mail or phone on a daily (or so) basis to them, and they post it for her. The clothes are mostly big designer names, but I know she has a big vintage collection so I’m hoping we get a peek at that (please!). Valentino dress. Pucci dress, wolford tights and Anne boots. Versace dress from 1998. Alexander Wang sweater and Genetic denim shorts. Navy Lanvin dress with Mikimoto pearls. All pictures from Adam and the Ants x Vivienne Westwood.

Vivienne Westwood (Cr ateur de mode)

Grande dame du mouvement punk, la styliste en dépit des années a su garder son goût pour l'anti-establishment. Mélange de références historiques et de trash, le style de la pétulante anglaise aux cheveux rouges a marqué la mode d'une empreinte indélébile… La célèbre créatrice de mode Vivienne Westwood est née en 1941 dans le village anglais de Tintwistle. Fille de Dora et Gordon Swire, Vivienne Isabel - aînée de trois enfants - a été élevée suivant les principes du calvinisme.

Statement Hats. Big hats have a personality all their own.

Statement Hats

Sometimes it takes a big personality to pull a hat from runway to the street. Pharrell Williams was a cause celebre when he wore a Vivian Westwood felt hat to the Grammys and Oscars. (Though, his mountain hat looks more mountainous than the one on VW’s the “buffalo girl”). Pharrell has an amazing amount of style, talent and cool factor that is beyond. Fashion Pearls of Wisdom. NANCY ♡ GIRL: SATURDAY SHOW ♥ VIVIENNE WESTWOOD'S BUFFALO GALS ♥ BUFFALO GAL (GIRL) STYLE PART 3 (read part 1 and part 2) So here is where it all began...with one of the very early collections from Vivienne Westwood (in collaboration with her beau Malcolm McLaren) back in Paris in 1982-ish (might have shown in 1981 actually)...if you really look at it, including the makeup and androgyny, it looks very pre-pre-grunge...


“In March 1982, McLaren and Westwood opened a second shop. It was called 'Nostalgia of Mud' and the fascia was covered by a world map. The interior was styled like an archaeological dig. Visitors descended on recycled scaffolding to an earth floor and a heaving ‘mud’ pond surrounded by voodoo-like artifacts.” Buffalo Girls (Nostalgia of Mud), AW 1982-83 Colours: Mud. Raw cut sheepskin. Bras – underwear worn as outerwear. Inspiration: Peruvian women wearing bowler hats and full skirts, dancing with their babies tied on their back.

Iris van Herpen. 21st century Gypsies: New Age Travellers adopt horse drawn-caravans and a love of Facebook (as long as it's solar powered) By Daily Mail Reporter Published: 11:35 GMT, 30 September 2012 | Updated: 10:12 GMT, 1 October 2012 They were the inner-city youth who, fuelled by punk spirit, anarchist philosophy and a hate of Margaret Thatcher, clambered aboard a fleet of battered old vehicles to shun the trappings of the modern world for a life of nomadic freedom.

21st century Gypsies: New Age Travellers adopt horse drawn-caravans and a love of Facebook (as long as it's solar powered)

And while today's new-age travellers appears to have taken the philosophy even further, preferring to use traditional horse-drawn caravans instead of gas-guzzling vans, they also appear to be embracing the modern technology like mobile phones, laptops and even Facebook. During the late 1980s and 1990s stories about the travellers were commonplace - illegal raves, clashes with the police, drug busts and fury at the criminal justice act. Photographer Iain McKell took his first pictures of new-age travellers 25 years ago. And while little has been written about the New Age travellers in the past decade, the movement has far from fizzled out.
