Not exactly fashion and architecture, but definitely falling into the fashion and interior design category. WWD reports that our favourite ginger grandma of fashion, the ferocious Vivienne Westwood, has teamed up with posh wallpaper manufacturers Cole & Son to produce a collaboration collection of wallpaper under the name Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son.
According to the official Cole & Son release "the Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son wallpapers are all based on signature designs from her fashion collections such as the iconic Squiggle print from the Autumn-Winter 81/82 Pirate collection and the more recent Cut-Out Lace from the Spring-Summer 07 I am Expensiv collection".
Inspired by fabric textures and patterns, the wallpaper designs were named quite appropriately.
Here is a small selection:

What does Viv herself say?
"It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media. This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper."And which one is my favourite?
270cm x 150cm sold as a complete panel.
Just imagine a wall covered with it...
Want, want, want!
