The latest lookbook by Vivienne Westwood and Andreas Kronthaler operates on two planes — for one, it gives individuals a glimpse of the designer's highly anticipated and impeccably stylized collection for the Fall/Winter 2019 season and secondly, it pays homage to London's Barbican Estate which hits its 50th anniversary this year.
The editorial is lavish, full of style cues that are chic, artistic, and expressive. The clothing definitely draws inspiration from the avant-garde punk scene and the glam-rock phenomenon. The ensembles are bold, with a sculptural quality, while the photographs betray certain symbols that hint at Greek mythology. Moreover, the backdrop of the Barbican Estate introduces an agreeable brutalist quality that effortlessly ties into the ethos of the entire collection.
