PARISFRANCE (SEPTEMBER 28, 2013) (REUTERS) -  Vivienne Westwood's ready-to-wear Spring/Summer 2014 collection atParis Fashion Week on Saturday (September 28) was a flashback to medieval times, with a glimpse into the attire of pilgrims wearing their finest and most festive.

The British designer called her show "Everything is connected" saying she took her inspiration from the morality of medieval folk.

"I liked the idea of their ordered world," Westwood told Reuters Television before the show. "We don't have any order in our world; it's every man for himself and we've not got any social order, you know, responsibilities at all."

Westwood's show featured a mix and match of asymmetrical dresses, blazer-like jackets and quirky prints.

A Low-neck printed top was paired with polo trousers and a grey blazer to create a primitive yet modern look.

"I also like the idea of people from the country, all in their really best clothes, in their folk costume," Westwood said. "So it's quite a mix of things but in the end it looks like it came from everywhere but it's very sexy."

Models sported painted faces and bold updo hairstyles, entering the stage via an escalator in six-inch heels.

Fabrics included material made from recycled plastic bottles and sack cloth in addition to traditional silk, cotton and knitwear.

Actress and model Pamela Anderson was sitting front row at the show, wearing a printed red dress.
