Vivienne Westwood Logo ScottishWhy I love StyleDrops: they give amazingly awesome background information about the designers they feature. As much as I’d like to believe that I’m one heck of a writer, I’m gonna leave it to the StyleDrops authors to tell you all a little about Vivienne Westwood.

“Vivienne Westwood played a vital role in the emergence of Punk Rock in the 1970s and has gone on to become one of the most original and influential designers of our time. Her designs combine a fearless unconformity with a sense of tradition. She is renowned for her gentle parody of Establishment styles, her use of very British fabrics such as Harris tweed and tartan, her re-use of historic garments such as the corset and crinoline. Yet, her approach has always been practical, driven by a curiosity about how things work, a process she describes as ‘learning through action’. Among other honours, Westwood also was awarded a place in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.”

Now to my pick of her SS/05 collection, the Vivienne Westwood handbag entitled “Logo Scottish”. Although I am not a huge fan of plaid (it reminds me of my Catholic School uniform), Vivienne made me love her red, blue and yellow plaid on this stylish bag. The bag mostly shows off the plaid fabric pattern but also sports leather straps and sports metal hardware. The bag sizes up at 12″W x 10 1/2″H x 7″D and has an 8″ shoulder-belt/handle. This stylish wonder can be yours for $499 at StyleDrops.

    Do you know where, for those of us that aren’t able to afford the designer (ouch) prices could get a similar hand bag?

    Do you have any sweepstakes for winning any purses or anything because I really do love your purese.

  • Edy- Let me look into it. Are you looking for a plaid patterned bag (and what would be a good price range)?

    Jen – we aren’t at the sweepstakes stage yet. We are still a very new site, but as long as the lovely women like you keep visiting, we will continue to grow and hopefully one day can do give-a-ways!! Hey, maybe even I could win myself a bag! Ha, JK!

    Finally had time to get back to the site! Work and school full time you know. Let’s see price range would be around 40 USdollars for me. That would be the highest that I’d be willing to spend on any purse. I love the look that the purse above has however I’m always willing to look at all options.

    I personally think that Vivienne Westwood is one of the most inspirational designers of all time when it comes to my work, I love to be unique myself and i admire the way in which she is so chaotic and wild with her work. This purse is very nice but i prefer the more out landish peices of work she has created.:D
