Collaboration of Vivienne Westwood Anglomania and Lee Jeans | Lee Anglomania

{YBA} The Vivienne Westwood and Lee Jeans ‘Lee Anglomania’ collaboration makes for some strange bedfellows, but it works. Surprisingly, Westwood’s cutting-edge designs seem to mesh well with Lee’s everyday wearabilty.

This pairing of the two labels reminds me of the Levi’s & Jean Paul Gaultier collaboration that recently took place. There are some interesting looks here that play with proportion, especially the super wide-cut women’s denim.

It was touted as a collection that would take inspiration from Westwood’s archive of seminal punk and pirate collections from the 1970s and 1980s with a range of bright over-dyed denim in electric blue, red, emerald green, camel and white as well as metallic printed gold and copper denim, but aside from the metallic gold skinny jeans, it’s not quite lived up to it’s punk/pirate inspirations. I suspect these looks only show a preview of what’s to come, but its suffice to say (denim wise) so far it’s a little underwhelming.

The Vivienne Westwood Anglomania & Lee Jeans collaboration will hits Vivienne Westwood stores and selected retailers worldwide this July with pieces set start from £80 to £200.
