While warm, earthy hues and hand-painted fabrics sourced from Burkina Faso added that extra dose of tribal refinement and originality, it wouldn’t be a Westwood show without some sky-high platforms, bustier dresses and the ruched stockings. "What's most liberating to me is using fabrics I was collecting," wrote Kronthaler, "sitting on my treasure for more than 30 years because I loved them and always thought one day I'll use them. I'm cooking my leftovers, it's just a great feeling."
And while the collection, for Westwood standards, at least, was small—51 looks—the designer was purposeful in his decision. "We have done a small collection which I find more than eloquent because there is going to be another one in six months and one should look forward to that." We do.
