Dame Vivienne Westwood has colaborated with Cole & Son to produce a beautiful collection of wallpaper based on some of her most celebrated designs including her 1997 Spring/ Summer Cut-Out Lace from the ‘I am Expensive’ collection, which looks stunning. The Trompe l’oeil Drape (below) is very flambouant and screams Westwood. As expected there is a very British feel running through the collection, an example of this style is the Union Jack print which has all the attitude that is expected from Westwood.
“It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media. This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper”
The Union Jack print reminded me of Mario Testino’s beautiful October 2008 shoot for Vogue where Kate Moss was dressed in recycled flags… How could you forget it!
