Two weeks ago we were invited to an exclusive party in the Vivienne Westwood store in Cardiff for a preview of their SS15 products – of COURSE we said yes! We’ve been in store a few times but not for an event so we were very excited.
We arrived at the store to these beautiful cupcakes – they even have the iconic orbs on them! How amazing!
For a while we spent our time doing a few laps of the store and taking everything in. There’s so much to look at and everything is beautifully made.
L absolutely love the loves the umbrellas above, they’re so chic and the different patterns and colours are so appealing.
Lots of VW’s prints are so bright and colourful, the totes below are a perfect example:
M loves the t-shirts and wants to get her hands on the black Chaos t-shirt above, and we both couldn’t take our eyes off the wall of beautifully designed bags and purses. The colours were stunning and ranged from blush to bright turquoises and pinks and back to classic black.
The one above is my absolute favourite! I would LOVE to own this bag!
Classic black and kept simple with the iconic orb at the front – it’s me all over and it also had zipped pockets to keep your valuables safe.
We loved having a browse around the store getting to know what products were new and generally having a good rifle through the clothes!
What caught both our eyes was the stunning purses, the bows are a really cute details and this turquoise one was something that you would never lose inside the depths of your handbag again! What a beautiful colour – I think we’d both fight over who bought this one first….
The array of colours for clutch bags and tablet cases were also pretty impressive, they looked stunning lined up on the shelves at the back of the store and I can tell you that I wanted at least 5 of them by the end of the evening, The turquoise is again a beautiful shade but the nude, pink and navy all caught my eye too!
Isn’t the dress above just stunning?
Such a beautifully bright colour and a simple rose pattern – but iconically a Vivienne Westwood dress courtesy of the beautiful neckline and nipped in waist. Gorgeous!
Next up we found the jewellery counter and it’s safe to say that this is the area that will be doing the most damage to our purses.
We wanted everything! In every colour and with all the pieces from each range – you’ll see what we mean by looking at the images below. Feast your eyes on these:
Rose gold skeletons?! Is there anything more perfect for scientist/bloggers??
We loved these – not only are they really clever with all of the bones being able to move around but they also have orbs attached to them. I’d love to wear one to work with a white shirt and black trousers, such a simple statement to make.
The orbs pretty much featured everywhere which was a really nice tough to every piece of jewellery, whether they were the focus of the piece or attached to the clasp so you know its a Vivienne Westwood item of jewellery. See below the keys which have the orb at the end of the key:
The rings above were also gorgeous – maybe not for work but as a statement piece for the weekend we both loved the pewter coloured one. They are armour design and actually move with your fingers. This section was definitely where they will be making their money from us!
L’s particular favourite was the rose gold set with blush inlaid – the necklace with the smaller orb is only £75 and its still pretty enough for every day wear. She’s going to add this to her wishlist/Christmas list/whenever she wins the lottery list as it is just too perfect!!
It was amazing to be able to browse the store in the evening and see all of the beautiful pieces that Vivienne Westwood Cardiff have to offer. The bags and purses are simply beautiful, the jewellery is stunning with a real edge to it (exactly how we like it) and the clothes are all special but wearable. What else could you want from a designer with a reputation like VW??
Thanks to the Cardiff store for inviting us to this exclusive party, we can’t wait to come back and see future pieces!
Do you love Vivienne Westwood clothes? Have you lusted after a bag or item of jewellery from her?
