HANDS-ON WITH VIVIENNE WESTWOOD'S LOVES COLLECTION
A PEEK INTO THE WORLD OF PUNK GLAMOUR
This holiday season, our schedule has become jam-packed as we jump from one press or holiday event to another. (Thank goodness for
, which has been our savior when it comes to getting us around LA in the midst of traffic and insanity -- if you're an LA resident, use the code
to get $20 for your first ride!)
One of those many stops was at
on Melrose Avenue, where we got to see the new "
" collection while sampling trays upon trays of delicious h'orderves and sipping the night away over prosecco. While the collection is a slight departure from Westwood's signature punk, the glamour is all there with versatile embellishments (the straps around the suitcases double as belts you can wear!) and an exclusively-produced, Scottish tartan pattern that can be seen throughout the clothes and accessories.
For this particular evening, I wore
s awesome "Prey" sweater from her SS14 collection and paired it with my
(I told you I've been living in them!). The hand-made
shoes I also wore that night were the perfect homage to Vivienne's punk but avant-garde legacy! It truly doesn't get any better than that.
