For Fall/Winter 2014 Mathew Williamson had his audience literally and metaphorically seeing stars. The British designer imagined “the optimism and high glamour of the 1970s” and described his Fall 2014 woman as “strong, empowered, and composed” with a “playful and exuberant spirit”. With that in mind, Williamson went for a mix of tailoring – A-line skirt suits and constructed silhouettes – contrasted with a young and playful star motif that was repeatedly interpreted through a mix of mediums that included embroidery, fabric, and print. Accessories in the collection mirrored Williamson’s jovial spirit and included glitter and holographic belts, leather bags featuring bold star prints, textured scarves, fur-pillow clutches, and mini moon-shaped yellow and black bags.

Standouts included Look 29, a sheer floor-length gown with a ruched neckline, deep V-neck slit, and slim belt with a pattern of deep-red, amethyst, and opal-blue stars reminiscent of the sky on the 4th of July. A sparkly long-sleeved mini dress (although less literal in its elegy to the motif) was an explosion of exuberant sparkle. Look 36, a spaghetti-strap slip dress with white feathers, evoked just the twinkle in the audience’s eyes – and hearts – the designer setout to inspire.
