Vivienne Westwood for Cole & Son

Iconic British fashion designer Vivienne Westwood has designed a range of wallpapers for Cole & Son, 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. 

“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”, says Westwood. 

Below is the feature from the Telegraph Magazine’s Interior Design Notebook page, which I am working on with David Nicholls, Design Editor.

Vivienne Westwood, the grande dame of anarchic fashion, has designed a wallpaper collection for Cole & Son. Its 12 patterns are based on prints and weaves from Westwood’s fashion collections. Shown here on the cape is Dogtooth, which the designer drew by hand (and, on the cape’s lining, the quintessentially Westwood Tartan). On the dress and hat is Cut-Out Lace. Each comes in various colourways and costs £55 per 10m x 52cm roll (020-8442 8844;
