Andreas Kronthaler for Vivienne Westwood Fall 2017

In this Burning Man goes to Bavaria trip, Andreas Kronthaler paraded apocalyptic gypsy raver gear for men, women and genderless types against a backdrop of guys in briefs wrapped in duvets.
Key looks included a satin Nehru-collared jacket graffitied with a white face and matching skirt with an arrow pointing to the crotch; a dress printed with a forest scene cinched — Bavarian maid-style — with a wrestling belt, and a messy graffitied wrap top dangling with natty fringe over saggy beach-bum shorts worn with a black sombrero and a giant sack scribbled with penis drawings. (In Kronthaler and Westwood’s world, your average everyday gear.)
Topping off the wacky, colorful looks was a run of out-there headgear made from packaging, like a bubble wrap headscarf.
Breaking with the far-out spirit was a totally wearable long-sleeved floral cotton dress. For all its eccentricity, the collection, in its parts, sheltered plenty of approachable merch.
