Vivienne Westwood has announced she's trying her hand at some punkadelic denim. The British designer has collaborated with Lee Jeans to launch a denim collection as part of her Anglomania label, called The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee collection. The debut collection will have signature touches of Westwood's goth rock persona, splashed across styles such as superskinny jeans and microshorts for women, and bondage jeans and skinny jeans for men. Washes will run from indigo denim to metallic gold- and copper-colored denim to denim printed with a trompe l’oeil lace design.
“It is very important for us to work with a denim brand like Lee with such a strong heritage,” said Carlo D’Amario, managing director of Vivienne Westwood. Prices for the collection will range from about $128 to $320, pricey for Lee's but almost nothing for a solid Vivienne Westwood creation. The line is set to debut for fall and will be offered o buyers starting next month. The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee collection will be sold at Vivienne Westwood boutiques and selected retailers, and the collection is planned to run for more than one season. Viva la Vivienne!
