London Fashion Week SS15 Catwalk Report: Matthew Williamson

Oooh, Mr. Williamson, do you ever get it wrong? The answer to that ridiculous question, is quite clearly, absolutely never. This collection screams high end glamour and is each item is so beautiful, I almost want to cry into my morning cuppa that I will (probably - a girl can still always dream!) never be able to afford such beauty in my life. However, the second best thing is to ogle over the images provided by Vogue and carry on dreaming. This collection saw the designer going back to his roots, to the brand's DNA, and focusing greatly on Seventies styling, using his signature colour palette of yellow, deep ruby reds, hot pinks and azure and exotic neon pops. Silhouettes consisted of flowing maxi dresses and skirts reminiscent of the Studio 54 style, embroidered jackets with a strong shape, anchored skirts mainly consisting of the pencil, and feathers and ruffles adorning the hemline of the mini dresses, with huge shades to accompany the pieces. Just beautiful.

"My muse is right there - Marie Helvin. I was looking at photos of her by David Bailey in the book Chasing Rainbows. I wanted this to be a real, honest collection, going back to our DNA, a celebration of what we do with strength and passion."

  Who else is a big MW fan?
