Vivienne Westwood Designs Wallpaper

British designer, Vivienne Westwood, has teamed with British enterprise Cole & Son to design…wallpaper! An interesting switch for the designer. It also gives the fashionista who has everything the chance to bring a little couture into the hearth and home and the walls.

Of course, as the ‘standard roll’s’ price varies from $87 to $298, this kinda chic don’t come cheap.

Personally, we think wallpaper could have a comeback but that it’s a bit outdated and it would be a like throwing away money if ever you decided to take it off.

However, Westwood’s personal touch for the company are quite similar to her collections. She says, “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”, something we can notice from her trompe l’oeil tartan print above as it uses her signature plaid.

It’s definitely an interesting transition.

Would you buy designer wallwear?

    Wallpaper was until recently seen to be outdated and very unpopular, but that was until the age of minimalism came to an abrupt end and we heralded an age of individualism in which anything goes. Now people are searching for ways to express their individuality in their homes and wallpaper has seen new heights of popularity. This collection by Westwood, the Grande Dame of British design, is perfect for fashion lovers seeking to bring her signature style out of the wardrobe and onto the walls.
