First seen on the Anglomania Autumn/Winter 2013-14 Catwalk Show, boldly printed with the Tartan Sea Monster print, these playful shorts are the perfect piece to brighten up the season. Darted and pocketed with gentle pleats, these shorts look great when teamed with the Reservation Puffer.
From a portrait dating back to 1592, the Sea Monster print is lifted from a gown belonging to Queen Elizabeth 1st. With the print hinting at lands explored far away for the greater good of the English Empire, Vivienne combines the Bruce of Kineard tartan overlaid with hearts, stars and the letters AR, symbolizing her stance “Active Resistance to Propaganda”. Bringing the design to the forefront of her collection, the Tartan Sea Monster is carried through to Vivienne’s accessories for Autumn/Winter 13-14.
