BACKSTAGE AT PFW: AK FOR VIVIENNE WESTWOOD

Viral dogs, skateboards and chair-hats were the norm for the creative director Andreas Kronthaler’s SS19 collection.

In Afghanistan, cycling might be considered taboo for women, but skateboarding is permitted. And in Jessica Fulford-Dobson‘s extraordinary book, Skate Girls of Kabul, young girls in vibrant, flowing garms are seen tearing around skate parks with wild abandon.

And this striking photo series is the inspiration behind Andreas Kronthaler’s latest collection for Vivienne Westwood (creative director and husband of the punk legend) – where bright, kitschy, unbridled fun was the priority.

Street-style jerseys emblazoned with viral Instagram dog sensation Boo the Pomeranian, horse corsets (with matching backwards-turned baseball caps), tea-tray peplum dresses, and skater boys in ruched dresses bombed down the runway.
