Vivienne Westwood Red Label SS2016 Collection is about mirroring the world. The most important philosophical question ever asked is “what is a good life?” A good life is one which mirrors the world.
That means that you understand the world through art and culture. You understand the genius of the human race and you understand yourself in relation to it. You’re like a little tiny shard of mirror glass that’s exactly a copy of the whole world. You’re very beautiful because you understand the beauty of the world and you understand the human race and you want to do your best.
At this point in time it’s incredibly important, also, to be political because we face incredible danger from our politicians and we’ve got to stop them! They cause climate change and war. The worst thing that politicians do is to pretend that nothing has changed when in fact everything has changed because the human race faces mass extinction, and we face it really soon, it could happen that by the end of this century there are only 1 billion people left.
Why do the criminals (politicians) want to do that- because it enriches them, but every one of their policies is a crime against humanity. I am here to say something like a crazy person because ‘the criminals’ aren’t saying it, they’re all pretending everything’s normal but they’re the ones who are really crazy because they’re taking us to mass extinction and we have to do something.
So what are we doing? There is a demonstration outside the fashion show today. These people are model & activist friends of mine, they have asked me “what can we do?” and I said to them “you’ve got to demonstrate! Let’s build demonstrations. Public opinion will stop them.”
They look great and the idea is that you can have a good time at a demonstration but more importantly it’s a matter of life and death. I’m saying something you don’t hear, and we should be hearing it. And we’ve got to keep saying that politicians are criminals and that way people will get the idea that we’re being completely misled and lied to.
