You know, I’ve never really been a massive Matthew Williamson fan. I did have to think twice about my point of view after being stopped in my tracks outside of his Bruton Street store last week. It was a grey London afternoon and I was nearing the end of my caffeine/ sugar high, considering calling it day as far as work was concerned. I can honestly say that the windows made me feel like I was suddenly stood in a ray of sunshine, lifting my spirits and my flagging energy levels.
As always featuring a broadly ethnic/ global fashionista feel, the styles in the store window were a riot of hot colour along with some stunning detail and really lovely silhouettes. I can’t say that they were super directional, or even that cohesive as a collection, but they did certainly deliver on the ‘feel good’ factor- probably helped along by the beautiful balloons scattered amongst the mannequins.
