Matthew Williamson does Ibiza-chic 24/7. His collections are full of bright colors, exotic prints, bohemian beading, and flowing caftans. It makes me want to head out for a night on the town in Morocco! He has an entourage of loyal fans including Zoe Kravitz, Rachel Bilson, Sienna Miller, Joy Bryant who all represent the designer at events frequently.
Prints. Check. Colors. Check. Caftans. Yup. Do you recognize that studded belt from one of Mary-Kate’s outfits? I love how MW keeps his traditional elements but makes them spring appropriate with a pastel-theme running throughout.
And why stray from what works? So, he did it again with his Fall RTW collection. Nowhere to be seen were the boring neutrals of other designer’s line. Instead he stuck to his mantra, flooding the runway with bright colors and embellishments. Personally, I think this is what our downturn world needs right now! If everyone has less money to spend on having fun, let’s at least dress like we are fun-loving!
I also loved his collaboration with H&M. Unfortunately, so did everyone else and by the time I got around to picking something out, I recognized everything and went home empty-handed.
