A sexy and sophisticated presentation at Matthew Williamson. English designer Matthew Williamson took a turn in a different direction this season with a collection that was tailored and strong. There was no sign of his usual signature bohemian style of free flowing printed dresses and cardigans. Every piece in this collection was pleasantly tailored with slim body conscious pieces and skinny-cut pants. This new change might be due to the fact that Williamson was back home in London presenting his collection rather than his usual show venue in New York City. It was definitely a collection for him to show his home city that he has evolved into a successful designer. This collection was all about a polished silhouette with body conscious dresses and lean fitted trousers. There was also some bright orchid print that were seen in the shirts and dresses. Stunning textures were seen in jackets and dresses with beading, shards of mirror and metallic linens. Matthew Williamson presented a diverse collection that was strong and sophisticated.
The event was held at the Somerset house in central London overlooking the River Thames and was east of the Waterloo Bridge. Model Abbey Lee opened the show in a tailored stone colored jacket paired with a beaded metallic linen dress. The beading infused sophistication in the tailored jackets and dresses. Metallic fabrics were also prevalent in the pants and high-waist shorts. The idea of metallic was the main focus in the collection with short dresses that were trimmed with glass shard mirrors. Each piece had a pleasant tailoring with great attention to details.
The adored pieces in the collection were the bejeweled cocktail dresses that came in a stone color. Another great piece was the beaded tailored jackets and metallic high-waist shorts that would work perfect for next spring.
Matthew Williamson has proved to his home city in London that he is a established designer with this unique and lovely collection. This collection was remarkable with a great shift in a new direction. The Matthew Williamson women is no longer the bohemian and carefree individual but rather a strong and sophisticated women who is now in London. -Brent Billiman, London, England.
