The mix of cocktail dresses and floor-length gowns - modelled by Daisy Lowe - have been described by the design team as ''classic'' and ''elegant'' and are in celebration of the British designer's long-lasting career in fashion.

A statement released by the brand said: ''We are pleased to partner with matchesfashion.com for this collection, as they have chosen some beautiful existing styles from our archive and allowed us to introduce new silhouettes to their customers.

''The collection is really classic and elegant, as it incorporates the best of Vivienne's designs then and now.''

The collection features four notable Vivienne Westood styles including the iconic squiggle print that appeared in the autumn/winter 1981 pirate collection and the brand's hourglass silhouettes.

Fans can expect fork out a hefty fee for the coveted items which range from £2,125 to £2,970.
