Fashion Week Series: Matthew Williamson

Matthew Williamson is always a breath of fresh air. He’s never too scared to dive into a splodge of colour and every time he unveils a new collection, I’m overwhelmed by the same refreshing feeling of his previous collection. What can I say…? The man’s Genius! He unlocks realms in fashion, the every day woman only dreamed existed and this season is no different.

Williamson’s Spring/Summer 2012 collection consists of colours that could only depict the beginning of a beautiful summer. His fiery oranges, sunshine yellows and his hint of electric blue are a rainbow dream only existent in fantasies. His rope belts and cultural prints are loosely based on Japanese influences and the nonchalant attitude that lingers in every perfect piece is ideal for the fortunate few amongst our dual population. Here are a few of my favourite pieces from his London Fashion Week collection….

Ps: Yes, you guessed it. It’s Milan Fashion Week 🙂

Fashion Week Series: Emilia Wickstead

Emilia Wickstead is my latest discovery in the fashion realm and having just unearthed her remarkable talent, I’m disappointed in myself to say the least. This Central Saint Martin graduate has astounded me with her somewhat preppy collection and seeing as my style is what my friend, Mayuri, refers to as “Mrs President” it’s no surprise that Emilia Wickstead has sky-rocketed to the top of my designer watch list.

Supposing I was to interpret this Spring/Summer story, I’d make it one for the demure princess, her elegance speaking volumes that needn’t be garish; her class exemplary of why less is always more; and her body, an eternal beauty, never aging. From the structured pleats to the floral prints, this designer has nailed what it means to be a perfect woman.
