In recent years, cult Vivienne Westwood pieces from the 1990s have found a new and unexpected audience – a renewed interest supported by the designer’s desire to revive some of her most memorable collections from decades past, such here as the “Tied to the Mast” from the Spring/Summer 1998 season, which showed in Paris in September 1997.

Westwood tapped Georgia May Jagger and Lily McMenamy – both the offspring of supermodels who walked for Westwood in the 80s and 90s – to model the new collection, which paid homage to Spring/Summer 1997’s maritime theme with with rope prints, and nautical stripes – the sailor’s knot motif from 1998 could be found laser-printed onto denim and woven through adjustable tops – whereas eco-friendly materials included recycled nylon and denim. 98% of the materials are low-impact and cruelty-free, and for the first time, there are no virgin synthetic fabrics. Even the wools now come from “regenerative agriculture” farms, in which as much attention is paid to the health of the soil as to the welfare of the sheep.
