Fashion Icon Vivienne Westwood

Last weekend, the de Young Museum opened a three-month long exhibition organized by London's Victoria and Albert Museum, "Vivienne Westwood: 36 Years in Fashion."

According to the de Young, "Known best for her fearless nonconformity, [Vivienne Westwood] ... has a profound respect for the past and looks to it for inspiration. With tradition as her springboard, she takes historic garments such as corsets and crinolines and reinvents them in new ways or uses thoroughly British fabrics like tartans and tweeds to create fashion that gently parodies Establishment styles."

When I find myself in the Southwest, one of my favorite things to do is visit the tiny old towns up in the hills. Last weekend, it was Tortilla Flat, population 6, a century-old former stagecoach stop in the Superstition Wilderness on a highway called the Apache Trail. I mean, could it get any more Unforgiven?
