NYFW: Matthew Williamson

One of my favorite shows was the always youthful, always vibrant Matthew Williamson show. Williamson did some great things in this show, not only brought forth clothing that restructured the young ingenue with smart, structured, youthful business wear. But he didn't stop there, he kept going by combining bright colors and tweeds, strong shoulders and an array of ruffles, furs and leather.

Two interesting things:

1) Outerwear.
The most enamoring pieces in the collection by far are the ponchos above. With the silhouette of trapeze jacket and what seems to be an infinity scarf of fur. In a jewel-toned shade of purple and the smart tweed. Williamson also had a number of jackets with ruffled lapels, leather accents and cropped styles.

2) Prints.
Matthew Williamson displayed a number of very different prints that were not only compelling pieces, but cohesive to his entire collection. His dresses, long sleeved and one-shouldered (as shown below) are interesting pieces because of his draping abilities and merely for the simple fact that they are very fun dresses!
