The Vivienne Westwood 'Get a Life' collection is full of folly. The always-eccentric Westwood's latest menswear show centered on fun and one of the highlights was a model strutting his stuff on a skateboard.

With rug-inspired wigs, playful patterns, dapper bow-ties, draped metallic t-shirts at first glance, it seems there was not much to take too seriously here. However, the Vivienne Westwood 'Get a Life' menswear SS '11 collection also made reference to war and climate change.

Implications - This eccentric collection blurs international boundaries, with inspirations from every region of the world, giving the collection an extraordinary global feel that is refreshing and fun. Westwood's collection is full of color, flavor and fresh style. Once compared to smashed glass, the 'Get a Life' collection melds everything but the kitchen sink.
