My Favorite Designer 2: Matthew Williamson at London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010 – from Bohemian Look to High-end Style
Let’s shift our focus to London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2010 which kicked off last Friday on the 19th after New York. I have fallen for our British fashion darling Matthew Williamson, known as “the king of boho” for his brilliant color palette and use of prints to have brought the modern bohemian style, which encapsulates the simple, flowy style of hippies and gypsies to his collections since 2001 Spring/Summer when he launched his collection titled “Wonderland” in which a paillette-encrusted skirt rich in rainbow sequins simply fascinated me. Ibiza inspired hippy bohemian clothes are Williamson’s specialty. Over the past seasons he has been doing Ibiza-chic flooding his designs with bright colors and embellishments, exotic prints, bohemian beading and flowing caftans. His 1970s Ibiza hippy bohemian collection for 2005 Spring/Summer’s a case in point in which a stunning silver floor-length skirt did highlight the theme.
