Printing out the instructions for use of an inflatable doll on a girl’s T-shirt, now that’s pretty puffed up. I’d even call it punk. But when it’s signed Vivienne Westwood, the subversion takes on its full significance, like a mirror held up to our society, for guys and girls equally. Fashion’s rogue designer has, yet again, let her streak of genius speak.

Reproduire le mode d’emploi d’une poupée gonflable sur un T-shirt de fille, je trouve ça plutôt gonflé. Voire carrément punk. Mais quand c’est signé Vivienne Westwood, le détournement prend toute sa signification, comme un miroir tendu à notre société, aux mecs comme aux nanas. L’enfant terrible de la mode a décidemment du génie.
