Andreas Kronthaler is not only Vivienne Westwood’s husband, but also the creative soul of the eponymous brand Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood who presents the SS20 collection in Paris.
So far we’ve always seen Andreas Kronthaler at work, but still behind the scenes, as the designer’s documentary, “Westwood: Punk, Icon, Activist.” also tells. From this season on the other hand, Kronthaler, who has also been managing the financial part of the Westwood empire for years, unveils to his public, a collection entirely designed by him for the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood label.
Obviously, even in this case, the show is provocative, although it is not Vivienne Westwood herself who tells it herself.
But her, the queen of punk, this time sitting in the front row to enjoy the runway, has been able to hand down to the best, her spirit of rebellion.
This is why the Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood SS20 collection brings a label that remains deeply Westwood to the catwalk.
It retains both its distinctive appearance and focuses on 18th century French punk, without neglecting the environmental activism that the famous designer has embraced for years, nor the concept of fashion’s influence on traditionalist culture.
The woman who hit the runway, in this case is indeed far from the stereotypes of the bon ton and, regardless of all that could condition her, proceeds decidedly towards the future, the more ethical one, fighting against the extinction of Fauna and Flora.
Presented during Paris fashion week, the “Rock me Amadeus” collection blends the deconstructed style typical of Kronthaler with the unmistakable Westwood corsets.
“I hung an image on the wall. The image of the handle of a door in the shape of a man’s head whose arms unite to form a knocker – toc, toc, alchemy. This vision has turned into a circle that unites shoulders or hips and flies in the wind, sometimes it’s short, others long “– says Kronthaler.
So true to form, the collection represents the “Everything is connected”, things that apparently have nothing in common with each other suddenly find a connection. This is inspiration, intuition, as well as the human condition of what we are and how we are connected to the universe.
