The mighty and inimitable Vivienne Westwood passed away at the end of 2022, prompting an outpouring of sentiments from across the fashion world and beyond. The maverick designer paved the way for British fashion design with her irreverent, punk-fuelled collections. But while the woman herself may not be around anymore, her legacy will live on for a long time to come, a legacy epitomized by the Vivienne Westwood Orb.

The Vivienne Westwood Orb logo, which has become a pivotal aspect of Gen-Z style, harks back to the ‘80s. Designed to resemble the Sovereign’s Orb — one of the British crown jewels — but adjusted to include the rings of Saturn, the Vivienne Westwood Orb logo can be seen as a reminder of the importance of the past, but also the future. It’s also yet another aspect of the designer’s canon that situates her in the very epicenter of British counterculture.

Beyond its meaning, the Vivienne Westwood Orb is an unmistakable signature that continues to demarcate the designer’s collections. Below, with the help of Harvey Nichols, we’ve rounded up some pieces that prove that the Orb logo will carry Westwood’s legacy for lifetimes to come.
