Confession: I’ve never been a huge Matthew Williamson fan. His collections are usually pretty boho/bright/loud, which just isn’t my style. His latest collection at London Fashion Week, however, was a whole different story. Wow. Consider me a full-fledged fan!
I suspected I might fall in love with this collection as soon as I saw the set: a black and white starburst carpet. It made a dark, trippy vibe that gave the clothes an extra dose of cool.
The first look I loved was his moon jacket- a black overcoat covered in tiny full moon shapes. Williamson styled it with bright yellow accents, but I’d wear it with all-black (maybe leather pants?) to really let the moons shine.
The astronomy theme continued into the next look, which featured a black leather pencil skirt scattered with brightly colored stars. It reminds me of my vintage YSL tank (last worn here), so how could I not love this??
The looks that really got me, though, were these 4 outfits that would be at home on stage at a 70s rock-and-roll show. Leather pants embellished with sequins and stars, graphic sweatshirts echoing the carpet pattern, little black dresses embellished with heavy-metal hardware, and blue and red fur jackets with silver chain detailing- hand it all over, Matthew. I want!
Closing the show was this amazing tux. A classic black two-piece suit got an out-there touch from a giant intergalactic neck piece. I have a feeling this look will be popping up in editorial spreads from now until fall 2014!
So good, right?
