Across designs for men and women created by Westwood and her designer partner Andreas Kronthaler, the punk heritage was there in mohair pieces, rips and tears, and a DIY aesthetic that reworked a plastic knife into an earring.

Environmentalism and politics, which have seemed to dominate Westwood’s thoughts over the past decade or so, were also plain to see. The collection was titled Ecotricity. The show notes read: “What’s good for the planet is good for the economy/what’s bad for the planet is bad for the economy.” Strings worn as belts and handmade paper crowns felt like something that might have been worn by an off-grid community. Some models’ clothes also had patches with anti-climate change slogans.

Westwood was greeted with extended applause for her finale. She walked it surrounded by tons of models with a huge bouquet of flowers, in platform heels and a tear in her eye. Even punk pioneers out to save the world get emotional sometimes.
