Vivienne Westwood interview

Here is an interview with lovely Vivienne Westwood from last week's Friday Night With Jonathan Ross (apparently BBC's version of those late US shows). Main topics: fashion, Pamela, environmental issues and Vivienne's life philosophy.

If you don't want to bother watching the entire interview, here is a short review:
  • Westwood was wearing her own new design - huge cloak made out of seven meters of duchess satin + boxer shorts
  • "Take the tablecloth if it’s beautiful, and even take towel if it’s good enough, or the curtains or anything — put things together yourself and take things from your husband or your boyfriend like boxer shorts or whatever" (I am so not a DIY person, but I love the concept. Sounds too radical in Vivienne's mouth, but it points out the right direction, I think.)
  • "Buy less, but choose well (...) I think it's even better don't buy anything (...) Don't just keep buying for the sake of it" (definitely! after longer "shopping diet" one start appreciating both - new and old clothes in his/her wardrobe)
  • "When I'm in the street, the only people I notice, are usually at least 70 years old, because they look really stylish."(look here)
