Runway Review: Matthew Williamson Spring 2015

Matthew Williamson made us wistful for the disco days with his SS15 collection of floral embellished pant suits, richly-hued silk button downs paired with midi skirts, and slip dresses. In a palette of maroon and mauve, teal and powder blue, and forest green, Williamson delivered his signature kaleidoscopic prints in glamorous maxi dresses that were made for the bold.

Smoky pink eyes paired with feathered hair that channeled Charlie’s Angels. Cross-overed tops worn with high waited, wide-legged pants flashed just the right sliver of midriff, for an elegant take on the cut-out trend. And what would the finale have been without the marabou feather details-accenting the necks, hems, and waists, as well as a handbag.

When asked about the collection, Williamson simply said: “There are no curveballs, no tricks. This all came straight from the heart.” Now there’s a design sentiment we adore.
