Matthew Williamson

Spring 12


The look Colourful, grown-up boho.

Key pieces Separates stood out, notably the floral-print silk blouses, brightly coloured slim-fit trousers, shorts and blazers, as well as flowing day dresses.

Colours A delectable palette of super brights was served up: the first course was tangerine and terracotta, followed by olive green and pink, through to turquoise with plenty of prints – Japanese blossoms, Ikat and blurry florals – to accompany colour blocking.

Commercial appeal The daytime options – silk blouses neatly tucked into slim trousers, well-cut blazers, shorts, dresses and smart jumpsuits – were Williamson all over and had plenty of commercial appeal. But eveningwear – often his strong point – lacked clarity. Pieces with feathers were too much, even for the most trend-led, premium indie.
