For the Spring/Summer 2021 season, Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood has switched its striking runway shows for a digital lookbook and video presentation – for the first time in 30 years, Andreas Kronthaler was not in Paris for fashion week.
Kronthaler had Westwood, friend of the house Sara Stockbridge, model Vita Leandra recite poetry while posing for the lookbook shoot by Kronthaler himself (who doubled as one of them) on his iPhone.

He boiled the collection down to its essence, comprising around 30 woven, 10 knitwear and 10 jersey items.
‘’I had already designed this collection before Covid: small, existential and essential, our model for the future. A red and white check jittery fabric sheath dress. Union Jack windswept draped strapless dress, banana trouser suit and crutch mini. Stiff upper lip: rugby shouldered DB, khaki linen hobble skirt worn with sky blue oversized shirt, or – shirt can be a mini dress – Unisex. A jaded jade green moiré with swirling watermarks on corsets, mini bomber; pretty tea ceremony dresses sprigged with flowers, mint green satin waspy dress. Fine mercerised white cotton jersey, tailored. Cotton is a precious fabric. Likewise: the sexiest evening dress in black cotton jersey’’, stated the show notes.
