Vivienne Westwood squiggle notebook

Squiggle notebookCelebrate one of Vivienne Westwood's most recognisable prints with this squiggle notebook.

One of the products on sale at the revamped Vivienne Westwood website, this notebook is covered with the squiggle pattern which was first used in the 1981 Pirates collection – the collection noted for kick-starting the look of the New Romantics movement. Since then the pattern has turned up as part of Westwood's range for the Rug company and in her wallpapers for Cole & Son, as well as being reinvented in subsequent fashion collections. 

The notebook is made from recycled paper and each page is also marked with another Westwood trademark – her orb. 

An ideal gift, the notebook costs £25.

Vivienne Westwood shoe retrospective at Selfridges

Westwood shoes

Since making her mark in the 1970s, Vivienne Westwood's designs have continued to innovate and inspire. A new display at London's Selfridges - Vivienne Westwood Shoes, An Exhibition 1973 – 2010 celebrates her contribution to the world of footwear. 

The display is situated in the store's Ultralounge and will contain almost 200 pairs of shoes. It'll include the now iconic pirate boot, dating from the 80s and her rocking horse shoes, as well as the platforms in the style that famously caused Naomi Campbell to take a tumble on the catwalk that time. It'll be brought up-to-date with her recent collaboration with Melissa (pictured), shoes that owe more than a passing nod to retro influences. 

The exhibition runs from 26 August until 22 September.

Lady Dragon Cherry Slingbacks by Vivienne Westwood


While everyone knows that British fashion heavyweight Vivienne Westwood found her beginnings in the 1970s, that hasn't stopped her having a keen eye for earlier retro influences. These new Cherry versions of her Lady Dragon Slingbacks have an undeniable hint of rockabilly style that works well with Westwood's quirky vision.

The plastic material used throughout many of Westwood's latest shoe lines lends a high gloss and vibrant colour to the shoes, ensuring a kitschy fifties appeal. Add the cherry detailing to the toes of this neat little pair and these are an ideal rockabilly pair.

Get them online from My Wardrobe for £110.
