WESTWOOD HITS THE WALL: Vivienne Westwood might well be one of fashion’s most antiestablishment figures, but that hasn’t stopped her from teaming with the posh British firm Cole & Son for a collection of wallpaper. The range, based on designs from past ready-to-wear collections, launched this month under the label Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son. The wallpaper designs include Squiggle, which was taken from Westwood’s autumn 1981 Pirate collection, and Cut Out Lace, based on a fragment of antique lace taken from the spring 2007 I Am Expensiv collection. Prices range from 55 pounds, or $87, for a standard roll to 188 pounds, or $298, for a trompe l’oeil design that looks like a ruched tartan fabric. The collection will be available through Cole & Son’s U.S. stockists later this year. “This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper,” Westwood said.
