Vivienne Westwood “Hercules and Omphale” Pant - AW93 “Anglomania”


    For many Vivienne Westwood is the essence of British fashion, having dabbled in numerous subcultures such as punk, politics and British history. The designer got her start in the '70s crafting a wardrobe for the British punk band the Sex Pistols. Her partner at the time Malcolm McClaren managed the group and wanted Westwood to design the look of the punk movement, her boutique quickly became a central hub for the counterculture. In 1981 McClaren and Westwood brought punk to the mainstream with their first collection, Pirates. Her design and ethos were always on the cutting edge and challenged British social norms at the time. A staunch socio-political activist, her garments also subverted traditional gender roles at the time and helped pave the way for unisex clothing. After years of being an anti-establishment auteur, the dame was embraced by the fashion world in Paris and is now one of the pillars of British and European fashion. These jeans feature an all-over print of Francois Boucher’s painting “Hercules and Omphale.” The piece is a clear representation of Westwood’s interest in mythos, history, and appreciation for aesthetics. Contrast red stitching accents the garment throughout and Westwood’s iconic Saturn orb pendant is submerged in clear plastic buttons in place of metal hardware.
