The Vivienne Westwood Spring 2014 featured a collection of Medieval-inspired fashions. Westwood put her own spin on the fashion of the Middle Ages, featuring looks that ranged from peasant-chic to royal splendor.
Models walked the runways outfitted in loose, drapey dresses, lace capes, long tulle skirts and extravagant wreath-inspired headwear. The models even carried canes or wooden staphs, were splattered with mud and sported messy, super teased up-dos to really complete the look.
The collection also retained Westwood’s penchant for fun and color with vibrant floral patterns emblazoned on several pieces and even a kitty tee shirt or two sneaking in there. Overall, viewing Westwood’s collection is sort of like stepping into a time capsule and gawking at the opulent, decadent fashion sense of the Chaucer era.
