Johnstons of Elgin produces Vivienne Westwood accessory range

Iconic British designer Vivienne Westwood has launched a special MacAndreas tartan accessory collection for a/w 16, which has been manufactured by Scottish cashmere specialist Johnstons of Elgin. 
 
The MacAndreas tartan is an homage to the Westwood’s husband and long term design partner Andreas Kronthaler, which was first created in 1993 for the Gold Label a/w  1993/94 collection entitled Anglomania, with the MacAndreas tartan officially recognised by Lochcarron of Scotland.
 
Woven in the Elgin mill by Johnstons of Elgin’s craftsmen, the range includes a traditional MacAndreas blue lambswool throw as well as cashmere stoles and scarves, with retail prices ranging between £150 to £225.  Each piece created for Vivienne Westwood is embroidered with the iconic Westwood orb in a scribbled style and a small Scottish bumblebee, a symbol of Johnstons of Elgin’s craftsmen, who use the latest technology, alongside skills passed down through generations.
