To me, Vivienne Westwood is a tough and focusing woman.
Once she focus on one issue, she will definitely tries her best to meet her target.
As these few years, she is focusing on the global warming and environment protection issues,
i guess she will continue to spread the message in 2010.
I forcast her using crystal blue, sapphire blue, sky blue, glacial blue, different kinds of marine colours. As the global warming issue is getting worse, the pole areas are being affected badly, the sea level keeps on rising, and she may use blue to show the ocean problem. As the ice is melting, white and silver white would be emphasised, i think that white colour and show the idea of cold and snow.
Next, i think that she will use green and brown colour as well, green power is very influencial in these few decades, as Westwood wanted to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide produce, she would definitely use plants and wood colours to bring the idea, as plants are important in keeping the aie fresh and transforming CO2 in to oxygen! Besides, yellow and dark red and pink colours are used. They are of course to decorate the designs, but also, they are also environmentally friendly colours as they refers to forest colours.
The Base colour of the collection will still be Black, white and greys. As Westwood likes to use them to contrast the emphasise colors.Moreover, overall looking to my forcast, the colours used are quite dusty, because the air is not as fresh, with the continuation of the destruction to the environment, i think the dusty and doom feeling of the collection will arouse the attention of the consumers!
I believe Westwood will continue to use the mono-chromatic and split-complementary scheme. As she used them in most of her collections., showing her own special style.
According to my understanding, the color used are all cool colors in this collection.
At this point, Vivienne Westwood started to be aware of the problem of Global Warming, and therefore created this collection as worriors of the environment, the colours used are worriors' uniform colours, which include dark laurel,Raven, ash grey and black. As these colours are all too boring, she added brown red, apprecot and light french blue. All these colours are related to environment ( sea, tree, sky, air), hoping to arouse the attention to the problem!
