All eyes on: Gareth Pugh and Matthew Williamson

GARETH PUGH

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.

MATTHEW WILLIAMSON

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.
