Vivenne Westwood to launch jewellery collection

Submitted by on Tuesday, 1 February 2011 | No Comment

Britain’s first lady of fashion Vivienne Westwood is set to launch a new extravagant collection of jewellery to celebrate the opening of London Fashion Week.

The collection will be showcased at the Wallace Collection which is Westwood’s favourite museum and has inspired her work over the years. Titled ‘Get A Life,’ the collection consists of one-off couture pieces and ready to wear designs. Crafted from rare metal, palladium, each piece has an underlying message – to respect the planet.

Talking of the collection, Westwood said: “Get a Life is a turning point, a catalyst for change – from the destructive to the simple and organic. Get a Life is about how we stop climate change and therefore preserve life for the next generation, while at that same time get a better life. My focus at the moment is what one person can do. Stop climate change. Save the planet. The acorn is symbolic of the rainforest, its importance and how it is our first duty to save it.”

The pieces are inspired by nature and pagan symbols representing strength, luck, power and hope and is a collaboration between Westwood and Palladium Alliance. The launch will be a prelude to Westwood’s autumn/winter 2011/2012 Red Label collection, at London Fashion Week, on Sunday, February 20. The range will then be sold in Vivienne Westwood boutiques in London.
