What might a city dweller dream of when she imagines hot climes and holidays? Well, hothouse colours, languid silhouettes, and come dusk, something sensational – feathers, sequins, and incredible embroideries – to set the night ablaze, of course.
This season, Matthew Williamson has his heroine dreaming of Japan. Eschewing notions of traditional kimonos and obi belts (Williamson’s girl is an individualist at heart who plunders from a global melting pot of ideas and inspirations) – the starting point of spring/summer ’12 comes from a less obvious source: Japanese textiles, ceramics, and antique heirlooms.
