Fashion label Vivienne Westwood paid tribute to its late founder on Saturday, taking to the catwalk in Paris with a collection drawn up by her husband and design partner Andreas Kronthaler.


Models sauntered through the gilded halls of the Hotel de la Marine overlooking the Place de la Concorde in a chic, punk-infused lineup for the Paris Fashion Week show.


Playing with volumes, tailored coats had bold shoulders and wide sleeves, while the lines on tracksuit trousers curved inwards at the bottom, rather than running straight down the leg.


One look mixed a patchwork of floral patterns, with an ample hooded cape thrown over a slim, fitted skirt and carried on towering platform heels, as rock band AC/DC’s growling rendition of “T N T.” thumped in the background.


Closing the show was the traditional bridal attire, with Kronthaler accompanying Westwood’s granddaughter Cora Corre, who wore an ivory, lace body suit with matching platform boots.


Scores of fans dressed in punk styles gathered to see the arrival of guests, who included fashion designer Jean-Paul Gaultier and actor Jared Leto.


London Fashion Week, held last month, was dedicated to Westwood, one of British fashion’s biggest names, who rose to fame dressing punk band the Sex Pistols. She died in December aged 81. — Reuters
