Daryl on Conduit Street: Dame Viv’s British Heritage Madness

Can you live the Viv? Daryl from Manchester is what you can call a faithful Vivienne Westwood advocate from head to toe: Today he is wearing a black and white Prince of Wales check coat, a green tartan navy wool suit with a milkyway T-shirt underneath, classic Orb moccasins in blue and several pieces of Westwood’s signature jewellry. A red tartan weekender bag rounds off Daryl’s choice for Dame Viv’s British heritage madness.

Ang Matthews on Conduit Street: From Haçienda to Vivienne Westwood

If you take a stroll on Conduit Street between the flagships of Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood, you will definitely meet more fashionistas who proudly make a head-to-toe statement for Dame Viv. Within half an hour on a rainy afternoon, we managed to take photos of three Westwood punters, while no-one could be seen entering or leaving Stella’s headquarters. A typical Westwood outfit is never about trends or seasons, as the eco-activist and provocateur fashion designer explained earlier this year: “There’s no such thing as the latest thing, that’s rubbish.” Rather, a Westwood dress is “like an extension of your personality.” And personality is something that the Westwood Red Label lady Ang Matthews has holdall bags of: A regular from day one, Ang was witnessing the development of the legendary Haçienda club through the 80s into the explosion of acid house and the DJ culture of the late 80s and early 90s. After having moved to Manchester to do her degree, Ang became assistant manager of the Haçienda in 1989 and manager and licensee from 1991 until 1996. She then DJ’d for a while and worked for a company in London, The Slug And Lettuce Company. “I’m at Vivienne Westwood now and I can’t believe I didn’t think of that before. Now I travel Europe in a VW campervan in the summer and work at Vivienne Westwood in the winter.”

Fashion Now // The World of cosmopolitan Style

If it’s good enough for Paris Hilton, who is rumored to shop here every now and then, it’s good enough for us. One of the 1000 and one things to do while in Paris is a trip over the city’s Triangle d’Or, i.e. the Golden Triangle between the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V – at least window shopping wise. Luxury fashion labels congregate behind grandiose entrances, leaving you dragging your jaw past fabulous yet unaffordable window displays. French people even have an expression for that: lêche-vitrine, translating window licking in English. It’s that what you’ll be doing in Triangle d’Or a lot. If it’s not only for window licking, then it’s an eldorado for fashionistas and victims of conspicious consumption. Paris’ first multi-brand designer boutique is Montaigne Market with over sixty international designers, offering seductive prêt-à-porter. You can meet the beautiful ones at the Market during Paris Fashion Weeks even at night, sipping champagne and having witty small talks over the most exclusive pieces of the next season. But even if you can’t afford that Christopher Kane leather dress at 2000 Euros, you can still evaluate who’s hot in the world capital of cosmopolitan style, even if it’s through a peephole or a shop window, respectively.
