Westwood-Gold Label AW15/16

Westwood-Gold Label AW15/16      We had a great time doing the collection. “Unisex”! – as usual with a collection we went through hell. But we came out the other side. Trousers for women, yes! Dresses for men, the same dresses that women wear? Do that! It takes a lot of trial and error. Dresses without a woman’s waist! But then you, the woman, look like a king or queen (from history or a parallel universe) – you the man look like a king or a queen! I love the change in proportion: the big shoulders give a small head – it’s so sexual because it’s new, it makes you look at the person from outside, it’s all so sexual because we’re looking at people with new eyes.  What about the fabrics? Start with the hula skirt – we put them on belts; they’re bisexual. The pagan wools i.e. bio- friendly matted sheep’s wool. A shepherd? A Sumerian? (we know almost nothing about them except for their sheepskin skirts). What are we talking about? Time: human beings have forgotten  more than we know. But we sort of know what’s human. Let’s go for it: Study the past. There’s a hint of it in the future
