Vivienne Westwood licenses Bruegel paintings for use as print on accessories and clothing

We are excited to announce that the hugely talented and inspirational British designer Vivienne Westwood has brought out a range of clothing and accessories using Old Master paintings. We have recently licensed a Pieter Bruegel the Elder painting and a Jan Bruegel the Elder painting, for use on towels, shirts and scarves.

Here we see Pieter Bruegel's Fight Between Carnival and Lent used beautifully on a Vivienne Westwood shirt, in her signature a-symmetric style..
