All eyes on: Gareth Pugh and Matthew Williamson


Fall/Winter 2011:

Black, gold and cobalt blue were the colours for a fashion show characterized by asymmetrical looks and gothic inspiration. Silk dresses and high-midi skirts, leather bold pieces, long gloves and lots of sequins were the must of the show.

Spring/Summer 2012:

For the next season, the designer opted for the duality black/white with only four metallic looks in the end of the show. The cage-esque constructions were inspired in insects.

Celebrities can’t resist his designs. Tell it to Beyoncé, who’s been wearing his clothes time after time, as we’ve already seen here.


Fall/Winter 2011:

Francisco Infante-Arana, a Russian photographer who photographs mirrored sculptures (see picture below) was Matthew’s inspiration for the Fall/Winter collection, hence the large quantity of geometric prints and patchworks all over the clothes.

Colorful, but balanced, my favorite piece was the dress with in the first picture. Although, I didn’t like the footwear.

Spring/Summer 2012:

Orange is the color that comes to my mind when I think about this show.

I think the styling of this collection is much well done than the previous one. Very minimal but youthful. According to the designer “It’s loosely based on the Japanese influences that I worked on quite heavily for my pre-collection”. You could clearly find this influence on the floral and feminine patterns.

*I really think these are two designers we should keep an eye on in the future.
