Going to War with Westwood

Vivienne Westwood

Newest of the New-Number Two
Menswear: Autumn/Winter 2018/2019

We continue to look and find the trends & colors of Menswear Fall/Winter 2018-19. Today , we check out Vivinne Westwoods pre video before the collection.  Here are the ridings from today’s Newest of the New Fall/Winter 2018-19.

Camo Not Camo, Military influence, Lots of Plaid, a bit of tweed.

Green, Taupe, Red, Off-Pink, Some Orange.

War, Peace & Punk influences. Uniform, New Romantic, Adam Ant goes high Street.

Collect the Cards, Connect the cards, Peach flags. Not really sure what she’s saying here, but gives us weirdness, suspense and intrigue.

No main trend or color on this teaser.  It may have been easier to spend the $275 on the 2019 Menswear trend book.  Hmmm. See you on the Streetz…Blog.

Hair it is-Vivienne Westwood

Vivienne Westwood Men’s Fashion Show F/W 2014-15

 

The men’s hair is so much fun in this Fashion Show, so plastic, so perfect, so much like a Weeble or a Ken Doll’s hair. That’s my favorite reason for posting this show. Wonder If I could get that look at home for a night out on the town..Wouldn’t that be fun! 

Similar themes to other Men’s and Women’s  F/W 2014-15 shows are the Grey and Camel Colors that have been a recurring theme. Other trend that is continuing is the ever morphisizing of the Men’s shoe.  More fabulous colors, styles and crafting showing up in this similar to other shows in 2012-15. Check out the bright orange tassel shoes or some of the other multi colored kicks. And as color blocking was so big in 2012-13 for women, looks like the menswear in 2014-15 is doing it too.   

I do think the models walked a bit too fast for my taste, needed to watch some of it a couple of times to see everything. And I do agree with Vivienne, there just seems to be too many themes happening in one show. I would recommend and say: A fashion show should be  like a good :60 radio commercial with One central theme, or max of three mini memorable moments. Like I learned the first year I worked in radio-KISS.  Keep it Simple Stupid. Or whatever they changed that last S to make it more politically correct.   

What do you think of the show or the F/W 2014-15 season in general?

BTW: I’m working on a new Hawaii Designs interview with Citystars Apparel. It will be ready to go sometime between March 01-August 31, 2014.  Just waiting on some more pictures and some special “Galaxy” Merch to get to the islands, then I’ll be ready to publish it.

See you on the Streetz.
