    Details
    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 70’s 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 she and McClaren 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.  A highlight from her Autumn Winter 1992 collection, these jeans are done in sturdy denim and feature Westwood’s iconic Saturn-orb hardware and unique stitching on the pockets. The jeans feature a print of the revered German-American film actress Marlene Dietrich, who has gone on to reinvent herself and cinema throughout her prolific career.
