Vivienne Westwood, London (MAN)


The newly opened 'Man' store from Vivenne Westwood at the Regent st. end of Conduit St. here in London, launched recently with its Spring / Summer 2010 collection based on Hollywood in the 1920's. The 1920's saw the release of films by icons such as Douglas Fairbanks in The Mark of Zorro and the Thief of Baghdad and Errol Flynn with his legendary parties on his yacht, Sirocco. This scheme, it seems is influenced by those Hollywood male leads from the society of the time with new adventures, excessive dinners and the beginning of Ocean travel. It is an interesting move by Westwood to open a store almost directly opposite one of her others however, the interiors of these spaces are also usually beautifully produced, and certainly on my list of places to visit and pay homage to the grand old Dame herself.
