Vivienne Westwood Mens A/W 11

Men's fashion week is well under way but I couldn't help but quickly blog about Vivienne Westwood latest menswear collection. The draped, flowing, soft tailoring and the potato sack belting of the high-waisted trousers (which I pointed out as a future trend not so long ago - fashion snaps for me) has been effortlessly intertwined with a subtle sportswear theme that seems to be appearing increasingly as of late. on runways

The turtle neck made another appearance in a menswear show and a wide, long leg seems to be the cut and fit of the season. I will forever be faithful to my blood-clottingly-skinny jeans but I do however like the trousers I'm seeing on runways lately. Baggy, wide, drop-crotch, harem whatever, there's something almost smart-casual about them (depending on the fabric of course) and not to mention, they look insanely comfortable.

These trousers (above) for example, I simply need....

...along with this entire outfit (above).

We're also seeing a lot of orange in menswear, numerous designers have been seen to be using flashes of orange in their collections, or in Dame Vivienne's case, entire outfits.

Also, no stranger to controversy, Westwood agreed to have one model walk the runway smoking a cigar. I'm sure plenty of anti-smoking campaigners will have a lot to say about that.... yawn.
