In Dazed and Confused Special Guest Collaboration Issue in July, Dame Vivienne Westwood wants you to get a life.The message is clear enough Get a life because Dame Vivienne said so. The presentation goes like this:A young self-sufficient tribe of eco-warriors dress for the future camouflaged in recycled waste and plant-life. In this all-about-Vivienne confusion, Oliviero Toscani (photographer, famous for his work with Benetton, if you remember there used to be lot of kids in the Benetton campaigns) shows the designers ideas for the future, in a clean and safe environment, so that the message doesn't get lost in the props.
The photo shoot reminders me of The Lord of the Flies, by William Golding. A story about the human actions when faced with an important issue: fighting for survival.
