Ah, Dame Vivienne, how we love you, your eccentricity and your love of all things British. Having conquered the fashion industry with Couture, Ready to Wear, Bridalwear and accessories, this week see’s Westwood’s fashion domination continue with the launch of the ‘Gainsborough Collection’, a new line of palladium ready-to-wear and couture jewellery.
Launched at PFW, the Gainsborough fine jewellery collection is a modern interpretation of the original 2000/2001 ‘Papier Mache’ jewellery collection from Vivienne Westwood Gold Label. Utilising the lightness and strength of palladium, the collection encompasses 6 ready-to-wear and 3 couture made to order pieces, ranging from necklaces and earrings to intricately detailed tiaras, all bearing Westwood’s trademark orb logo.
Set to launch at Selfridges stores and Vivienne Westwood boutiques nationwide, with Georgia May Jagger fronting the Juggen Teller shot advertising campaign, prices start from £270.
