There was a whole climate change awareness subtext to this show, as is often the case with Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label. Obviously I’m in favour of climate change awareness, and I get that her heart is in the right place. But are mud-spattered models and Lily Cole performing an interpretive dance based on “The Red Shoes” really the best way to go about this? There’s something pretty goddamn embarrassing about using a high-end fashion show as a platform to inspire discussion about the dangers of consumerism. This sort of thing is why, even a decade after it came out, Zoolander is still basically a documentary. — Spring 2014 Fashion Week: Victoria Beckham, Fausto Puglisi, Vivienne Westwood Red Label, and Chris Kane at HelloTailor.
