London Fashion Week AW11: Matthew Williamson

Who: Matthew Williamson

What: An infusion of native American prints combined with the chicness of an inner city socialite.

Thoughts: We always expect great things from Matthew Williamson, and despite other critics’ uncertainty, next season’s autumn/winter 2011 collection is no exception for us.

Hailing prints found in Red Indian tribes, the British designer’s latest offering had an ethnic-inspired feel that bonds well with his boho aesthetic and use of statement colour.

Combining pretty prints with signature haute hippie styling, tailored loose-fit pants and shift dresses came alive with a modern infused twist. Alongside oversized knitted ponchos, Icelandic fur on stoles or gillets and slim sheer shirts, shaggy coats and thigh-flashing skirts were thrown in for naughty but nice seasonal wear.

Anyone else kinda itching for autumn to come quickly back around?
