Vivienne Westwood UK punk exhibition opens at Lincoln Castle

An exhibition of clothing and shoes by punk designer Vivienne Westwood Outlet has gone on show in a castle prison.

Bondage to Liberation at Lincoln Castle, based on human rights and free speech, includes iconic footwear and clothing by Westwood from a private collection.

Vivienne Westwood UK also provided some of her own collection for the exhibition.

The show includes the famous Sex Pistols Mural by radical artist and anarchist Jamie Reid.

The collection of footwear, owned by Lee Price, spans from the 1970s to the present day.

There are also pieces of clothing and a handwritten cape by Mr Reid.

Curator Kimberley Vickers, from Lincoln Castle, said: “The work of Westwood and Reid epitomises a key moment in British cultural history.

“We are very excited to see the Victorian prison transformed into the historic backdrop for this brand new exhibition.”

Vivienne Westwood Link up for Vibrant Anglomania Footwear Capsule

After jumping on a collaboration with ASICS, Vivienne Westwood has returned for a vibrant co-sign, this time with Vans for a footwear capsule dubbed “Anglomania.” Spanning a range of classic silhouettes like Sk8-Hi, Slip-Ons and Old Skools, the assemblage sees a series of bold designs that echo the aesthetic sensibilities of British culture.

Featured are sneakers with punk-inspired 1971 Checkerboard Slip-Ons, Pirate boot Platform Sk8-His, Vintage Style 53s in black suede and other colorful sneakers. One standout piece is a black Sk8-Hi, complete with a wide leather belt strap that goes over the forefoot. The shoe is decked in black all the way from the collars to its tonal midsole, while a bright yellow “Vans” label is sewn over the tongue. Another highlight is a blue Era decorated with Westwood’s logo and multi-colored lightning bolts. More details like crisp white laces, silver-tone eyelets and “V.W.” initials at the rear quarter round up the features of the sneaker.

The Vivienne Westwood x Vans “Anglomania” Capsule is set to release globally on September 20 at vans.com as well as select retailers worldwide for $83 – $153 USD.
