I'm sure there has been a lot of speculation & comparison of these 2 logos of the trademark Harris Tweed and Fashion Designer Vivienne Westwood prominent logo's, but I can not help but notice it every time I look at a Harris Tweed Label I always think of Vivienne Westwood. Not a bad thing at all as I am a big fan of her design and quirky punk-like fashion.
Did she copy the logo? Is is very close!
Well w/ a bit of research on-line I have found her theory and seems to be legit especially w/ her love of tweeds and her logo which was inspired by the Harris Tweed logo. Take a look for yourself above.
"The 'orb' of Vivienne Westwood reflects the orb of the British Crown Jewels but with the addition of the 'planetary' circle around it she gave it a bit of a punk twist. She has always used a lot of tweeds and tartans, which even inspired her logo:
"The infamous Harris Tweed is certified as a genuine by the Harris Tweed Authority. The orb motif was reworked by Vivienne Westwood for her label logo."
And now you heard it here!
