Men on the catwalk - whom would you choose?
British designer Vivienne Westwood presents the new 'MAN' collection FW2011/12 with a video. Westwood explains the approach to the catwalk presentation with the casting for the models who "...looked so different from one another, different types, different characters. ... All ready for life + love + responsibility."
Green activist Vivienne Westwood (the designer has received on occasion of her 70th birthday on 8 April 2011 70 acres rainforest in Peru from Pamela Anderson) has created for this collection a wide range of styles from classical tailoring to sportive urban wear.
The models wear eye-catching red colors on their lips. On some faces and with the right aristocratic early 20th century styling, the red becomes bloody-vampire alike. Alongside to jeans in traditional cut worn to university-cardigans, elegant suits in woolen fabrics with striped shirts, and almost every edgy variation fashion has to offer at this time, Westwood presents trousers that make think of a Bollywood star whose jaipurs had been going through a re-design by US hip-hop/rappers.

At the end of the video description on YouTube, Vivienne Westwood invites to choose between the styles: "...who would you choose to be your bridegroom? Come on girls our catwalk is your chance to dream."
