Until the End of the World

I’ve always admired designs by Vivienne Westwood from afar but never indulged until recently.  I love that her style was born out of the punk era, so her fashion seems to speak to me musically (I always include a little punk or goth into my wardrobe).  It was my intention to visit her shop, World’s End, while I was in London this past August.  Due to time constraints, we never got to do it.  Instead, this sweater was my first ever purchase from Vivienne Westwood, and I snapped it up when I saw it on sale on Zappos.  It’s from the Anglomania line and the crazy threads woven through the cable of the chunky knit gives it that punk feel.  I can let them dangle or cinch them up and tie them for the asymmetrical look.  My favorite part is the safety-pin closure.  I absolutely love this sweater!

  1. Dame Vivienne Westwood first came to the world’s attention in 1971, launching her designs during London’s punk movement. Westwood has since carved out a remarkable niche for her rebellious brand of romantic tailoring. Make your mark in the label’s orb-stamped totes and signature flashes of tartan.
