Vivienne Westwood stands alone in the nexus between pop culture and fashion — her finest works rendered inextricable from the legendary punks which donned them. Initially drawn to the movement by its shock and subversion, her store King’s Road (later renamed SEX, and then Seditionaries) became the defining authority on the visual language of the movement. Though as Westwood’s career has progressed, she has found herself more firmly entrenched in the mainstream (receiving British Fashion Designer of the Year three times). Dhe’s remained a designer for whom the political and social message behind her clothing is often as important as the garments themselves, and has released capsule collections aimed at calling attention to nuclear weapons, climate change, and numerous other social causes.

In the late '80s and early ‘90s, Vivienne drew inspiration from a younger generation she dubbed “Tatler girls,” (in reference to the popular UK magazine, Tatler) who paradoxically borrowed from the upper-class's style of dress. Keeping within this theme, she released a series of denim jackets and pants which featured elaborate, all over prints utilizing visuals of renaissance art and other signifiers of upper-crust financial status. This jacket features an all-over print of a classic Rolls Royce.
