For all Vivienne Westwood fans out there, here’s a great opportunity to have your home in iconic Westwood-style. The great British designer has cooperated with the company Cole & Sons to create a collection of wallpaper, with prints from her previous fashion collections. The fabulous result:
The Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son wallpapers are all based on signature designs from her fashion collections such as the iconic ‘Squiggle’ print from the Autumn-Winter 1981/1982 ‘Pirate collection’ and the more recent ‘Cut-Out Lace’ from the Spring-Summer 2007 ‘I am Expensiv’ collection.
Some examples of the prints:
‘Absence of Rose’: a print that first appeared in a recent collection of Westwood’s knitwear
‘Squiggle’: taken from Westwood’s A/W 82 Pirate collection
‘Magnolia’: inspired by a paper cut-out design, executed in a very small scale, then used as a print on silk and wool in subsequent fashion collections
‘Cut-out Lace’: from the Spring/Summer 2007 ‘I am Expensiv’ collection
‘Paper jewellery’: inspired by the jewellery from Westwood’s Autumn/Winter 2001 collection, made entirely from paper, based on technical drawings of royal jewellery
