Runway Recap: Matthew Williamson

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?
