Vivienne Westwood F/W’97 ’Five Centuries Ago’ Velvet Bustier


Out of stock

Vivienne Westwood, the veteran punk of the high fashion world, has alway forged her own path into fashion. Westwood has one major thing about her; she always feels like the future in her way of styling. For this collection, Westwood used natural fabrics at the time when most fashion was driven by ease of care and wear. To the heathery mix of Tattershall check, red barathea, velvet and Harris Tweed, and romantic sexiness, she brought in a gentle parody of establishment styles the clothes of boarding schools, royalty and country wear, giving them a new lease of life. For most Vivienne Westwood fans out there, her bustiers and corsets are the holy grail. A corset or bustier makes any women desirable, sexy and stylish at the same time. This particular bustier has a ‘Orb’ button up on front, a pointed corset shape and is made out of soft velvet. Beautiful to style over a shirt or over the naked body.
