A Vivienne Westwood menswear celebration and ten years of Another Man drew luminaries from fashion, art and music to a technicolour Mayfair extravaganza
This evening, Vivienne Westwood, Kate Moss and Another Man hosted an intimate and exclusive party at LouLou’s, Mayfair. The theme for the evening was Psychedelic Unisex – to celebrate 10 years of Another Man, and launch Vivienne Westwood’s bespoke hand-made UNISEX tailoring.
The event brought together key contributors and style icons from Another Man spanning the last decade, as well as cultural influencers from the worlds of fashion and music including Alister Mackie, Jarvis Cocker, David Sims, Samantha Morton, Alice Dellal, Harry Styles, Bella Freud, Katie Hillier, Luella Bartley, Ben Cobb, Paul Simonon, Bobby Gillespie, Gareth Pugh, Tim Rockins and Ellen Von Unwerth.
The gatecrashers of the party were Vivienne Westwood’s gang of UNISEX rebels modeling Westwood’s bespoke tailoring collection. Hand-made in England in a selection of British fabrics, the tailoring service is a new offering for the brand and will be introduced to the Vivienne Westwood MAN boutique in London from the Autumn.
"This collection is something else!" Vivienne Westwood said. "Unisex: The same size suit (Savile Row tailoring) can fit a woman, and a bolero with shoulder pads buttoned inside can fit a (model sized) man – sleeves and pants too short. Cool! The exact same dress fits woman/man. They look like queens/kings."
"It’s classic tailoring with subtle changes to the proportions and fit," said Andreas Kronthaler, Vivienne Westwood Design Partner and Creative Director. "It’s modern and stylish. You are drawn to someone wearing these suits – you want to meet them!"
The evening saw revellers enjoy a selection of bespoke cocktails provided by Belvedere Vodka including Belvedere Classic Vodka Martini, Belvedere Zaphyr and a Polish Mule and Ruinart Champagne. Guests danced to a rock‘n’roll soundtrack provided by DJs Rhys Webb and Jarvis Cocker plus a psychedelic live set by Telegram.
