Spring-Summer 2011 – The location of the catwalk was Battersea power station. This set the bar high for an awe inspiring collection and Mathew Williamson did not disappoint. The inspiration of this collection was evident throughout the show.  The feeling of a colonial solider amongst the tribe was fascinating. The flashes of greens, coral and orange amongst the predominance of the camouflage browns created an exotic collection of colours. To add to this shone the metallic colours of silver, bronze and other peacock colours. Not forgetting the bright blue and yellow pieces which reminded the audience of summer solace. The different styles of this collection meant that maxi dresses were among mini-skirts and jumpsuits were among blouses. The 1970’s jumpsuits and wide leg trousers created a chic and sophisticated look. Equally, the mini-skirts and dresses were playful whilst maintaining the elegance which the show had captured. Lingerie bustier tops alongside boob tubes maintained an element of fun. Whilst the incorporation of silk blouses – the item of clothing everyone is talking about, and tapered trousers exuberated a mature veneer. This was a beautiful collection that can be worn by all.
