Designer Vivienne Westwood unveiled a new clothing line for men over the weekend in Milan inspired by the industrial revolution that took root in her native England in the second half of the 18th century.
Westwood was one of the stars of the presentations of the 2013-2014 fall-winter lines in Milan, where designers will be showing off their latest creations until Tuesday.
The British fashion house, known for being in the vanguard of style, is betting on metallic and plastic garments, with straight and geometric cuts that, when mixed with different colors, provide an urban look to the collection.
Hoodies and paratrooper pants can be mixed to offer a look that brings the industrial revolution to the 21st century, with inspiration from the rapper and acid look of the 1990s.
Drawing on the 18th, 19th, 20th and 21st centuries, Vivienne Westwood shows her willingness to take on a new revolution, the "climate revolution," as the messages displayed by her models on the runway made clear. EFE
