VIVIENNE’S VALUABLES: Vivienne Westwood has teamed with five British heritage brands for a capsule “collaboration” collection, called Vivienne Westwood [Heart], which celebrates British quality and craftsmanship.
Luggage brand Globe Trotter; outerwear specialist Gloverall; cashmere and knitwear label Johnstons of Elgin; traditional hatter Lock & Co., and luxury sock brand Pantherella are Westwood’s chosen brands, all of which are between 75 and 346 years old. According to Westwood, these brands were chosen because they “epitomize Vivienne’s ‘quality over quantity — buy less, choose well, make it last’ ethos.”
