Joyous Tone Strikes the Right Chords

By Marcellous L. Jones

Milan, Italy – Forget the cold of the winter months. Vivienne Westwood and her team have conceived a joyous collection for the season. Lots of color, audacious cuts and great styling will chase away the winter air in favor of more excellent party occasions to certainly come.

The collection has lots of wide horizontal stripes, strict shoulders and deep dropping crouches for a rebellious English touch. The cardigans represent the best of knitwear. Like many of the woven blazers, they have long, vertically placed flaps that may be buttoned at the knees.  All these elements lead us into the formal wear section that beautifully closes out the show.

The plastic derby shoes in festive colors like orange, yellow, etc., are new to the line. They share the honor of dressing the Westwood man’s feet this season along with other classic derby shoes and high-top athletic shoes. Studded belts, ties, scarves chain necklaces and colorful bags complete the choices for men.
