A Post For Pearl

Vivienne Westwood original Pirate Boots.

Pre-fancy VW label; pre-fancy logoed box; pre-fancy logoed dust bag!

These go so far back as to have the scimitar rather than the orb, which is so recognisable as her 'signature', on the label.

Additional 'signatures' courtesy of Mr B who got Lux Interior (RIP), Poison Ivy, Grrr Fur and Nic(ola) Knox of The Cramps to sign one boot. Also on there is Diana Rigg, (due to her Emma Peel character), Fenella Fielding, (I guess...just because...), Eartha Kitt (RIP) and the wonderful Iggy Pop, (before he bailed out and got into bed with Swift Cover).

The little verdigris brooch apparently used to be given gratis to customers at Worlds End.

Enjoy, Pearl!

  1. I'll leave it to Pearl to give them the proper appreciation they deserve but I must just say that I love them, especially with all the autographs!

    Are you feeling any better now?

    ps - I think the dress from Cow is going to remain on the hanger for a while - it needs sunshine! The weather is so grim here at the moment :(

  2. Just WOW. These are incredible, and the Diana Rigg autograph is most exciting! x

  3. Aggggggggggggggggggggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    How amazing I was hoping you would post these after telling me about them! I cannot cope with over excitement! For once I am so speechless I will come back later when I have something intelligent to add!
