Now your walls can look as fashion-forward as you do. Legendary British fashion designer—and born-again environmentalistDame Vivienne Westwood has paired up with Cole & Son to launch a collection of wallpaper based on some of her most celebrated designs, including the iconic Squiggle print from her Autumn/Winter 1981/82 collection and the more recent Cut-Out Lace from the Spring/Summer 2007 collection.

To toast the collaboration, Westwood and the historic wallpaper manufacturer fashioned an array of dresses from decorative swatches, cleverly bringing the designs full circle from three dimensions to two dimensions and back again.

“It is good when my ideas get carried over into other artistic media,” Westwood says. “This collection is a perfect opportunity to be able to work with a heritage company like Cole & Son and to see my ideas from fashion translated into the world of interiors and wallpaper.”
