He’s been called the Prince of Prints in the past, but, for Spring/Summer 2014, Matthew Williamson scales back on impactful prints for more subdued versions.
Inside the Saatchi gallery, Williamson’s show was off to a curious start with a bright-orange tailored suit. Not many women wear orange suits, but that’s because not many such suits existed prior to this point. It requires a large amount of savvy to take a classic piece and turn it into something unexpected and rare simply by adjusting the color palette. Williamson, best known for his haute-hippie take on high fashion, opted for a more sophisticated approach to spring style this time, with plenty of pieces that would work at the office or even just dashing about town. The easy, flowing kaftans, midi-length skirts, shirtwaist dresses, and silk chartreuse skinny trousers are the answer to your daywear needs. Other looks include sheath dresses with scattered 3-D floral-appliqués, breezy Grecian dresses, and printed chiffon halter-neck gowns. Williamson’s signature embroidery appears on the final two looks, which are two versions of a gorgeous, sheer, floor-length dress. From a brilliant start to a dreamy monochrome finish, Williamson is your new source for day and evening looks that suit a busy lifestyle.
