nostalgia of mud









Vivienne Westwood's nostalgia of mud has been my inspiration all winter and autumn and i will continue to experiment with the combination of twisted, oversized A-symmetrical cuts of tattered, layered material, inspired by 
Primitive and Rastafarian people.Although I haven't been making too much for myself but more buying.

back in 1982 
Malcolm McLaren said of the collection 
“What’s interesting about England right now is that there’s a definite movement to get involved with the 3rd World: to wear African dress, and put it with a Dominican hat, throw in some Peruvian beads, and wear make-up like some of the tribes in New Guinea – simply because we have to go even further to demonstrate that we want to get out of this island mentality”

its fucked how that's still relevant to today.
