Vivienne Westwood - FW1991 - Velvet Top With Gold Boulle Pattern
This vintage Vivienne Westwood top is from the Fall Winter 1991 collection. This year is special for the house of Westwood as it was the first collection shown in Paris for the London base brand.
The amazing pattern here on fabric is referencing the work of André Charles Boulle, French master of marquetry from the 18th century. Subtle changes have been made to feature the legendary orb and make the pattern repeat perfectly on the top.
This pattern was used on many pieces this collection worn by the legendary Sara Stockbridge on the runway as well as in editorials. Vivienne Herself wore a velvet gold piece while thanking the wild crowd at the end of the show. An iconic piece of fashion.
