Painted clothes for Vivianne Westwood

Karl Lagerfeld, who was wedged somewhere between Lohan and The Kinks. At the time I was surprised, even shocked, to see a designer’s name on an album because the man may be a connoisseur of fashion, but music? Karl’s taste in music, though I am slightly reluctant to admit this, is awesome. He had chosen bands like The Pipettes, LCD Sound system and Siouxsie & The Banshees, which caused me to contemplate buying his CD until I realized the guy was charging over $40 for “some of his favorite songs.” Thanks, but no thanks.
This year Vivienne Westwood has jumped on the proverbial bandwagon and has released a CD that she has conceptualized, curated, and art-directed and, similar to Lagerfeld, is a compilation of some of her favorite songs like “Last Night Was Made for Love,” by Billy Fury, and Tchaikovsky’s Waltz of the Flowers. Westwood told British Vogue:
“My clothes always tell a story. It may refer to the past, but it’s always projected into this heroic future. And I choose the music accordingly … Sometimes the music can just be sexy, it can let you relax, look at the clothes, put people into a fantastic mood. Then it might just have to swing back and lift you up to the final triumph of the fashion show.”
