A few weeks ago, Lady Gaga visited the Wikileaks founder at the Ecuadorean Embassy in London, wearing an outfit (but not the hat) from Hedi Slimane’s first collection for Saint Laurent; on Wednesday, Vivienne Westwood stopped by Chez Assange in a T-shirt originally worn by Jade Parfitt to the designer’s spring 2013 Red Label show in London. Yes, that’s Dame Viv’s face alongside the words, “I’m Julian Assange.” Not only is she “a long-standing supporter of the Australian,” according to the Telegraph, she really thought this one through. Writes British Elle:
Presumably on Vivienne’s visit they shared a glass or two of red wine, since the designer displayed to photographers the bottle — secreted in the pocket of her voluminous striped trousers — on her way in.
Form and function.
