The SS 1991 Collection dubbed ‘Cut, Slash and Pull’ showed some of Vivienne’s most legendary bodies of worst to date. Taking elements of inspiration from the 16/17th century, where they were seen to rip apart and stitch together cloth to form dresses. Harmonising with her earlier Seditionaires work, whilst putting her cutting edge spin on it (no pun intended).
Constructed out of a durable woven cotton material that features the standout slash detail from the collection, creating distressing and fraying to the fabric. This detail is repeated across the entirety of the shirt in an asymmetrical pattern. Further details include a boxy slightly oversized cut, branded button and a box pleat running down the back. A truly incredible piece from one of Westwood’s most iconic collections.
Numerous pieces from the collection have been archived in museums across the world, however, this shirt is one of the lesser-seen items across the collection. (Made in Ireland).
