Matthew Williamson

The look This collection was typical Matthew Williamson, in that it embraced colour and pattern despite it being autumn 11. Biker girls with 1970s undertones best summed up this one.

Key pieces A fur-trimmed Aztec weave coat opened the show and was one of the strongest pieces. Williamson turned jodhpurs into sexy leather biker styles, thanks to suede and quilted patches. He also explored a slouchy trouser shape, which was best in bright colours. Feather trimming was key, whether on marabou cocktail dresses or decorating the edges or seams on mini dresses. He was another designer to feature wraparound mini kilts, albeit not in tartan.

Commercial appeal The Aztec coats and feather-trimmed dresses were a triumph - expect to see versions of these filter down to the high street next season. The biker jackets were less exciting.
