Vivienne Westwood’s Lip Safety Pin
Punk, with its loud tartan, fierce leather and abundant eyeliner, has seen somewhat of a resurgence over the last year. Vetements autumn / winter 2017, full of checks and chains, was laden with references to the era and Dior, currently spearheading millennial feminism, has referenced heavily the 1970s first-wave feminist uniform in recent collections. Punk spirit, always alive in the work of Vivienne Westwood, is back and, if you’re brave enough, we think there’s no better way to incorporate it into your look than with lip safety-pin.
Westwood first sent the accessory down the runway on supermodel Kate Moss in her autumn / winter 1993 show and the safety-pin, worn through the lip or otherwise, has featured strongly in her work since. With a small crystal orb, synonymous with the brand, cool Westwood embossed coin and shiny gold finish, we can assure you style is still the main concern here. Go on, we dare you.
The limited edition lip accessory is available online and in Vivienne Westwood boutiques worldwide
