Bold and exotic florals take centre stage in Matthew Williamson’s collection for SS15: a darker than average colour palette, enhanced with ombre effects, brings a sensual tone to the garments. The collection as a whole is much more suggestive of evening rather than daywear; which again may be attributed the alluring sunset and midnight ocean hues.

Fabrics flow freely and elegantly with sheers making appearances throughout – particularly in the blouse department. The use of lightweight silks sits in stark contrast with the tailored pant suit looks.

Draping, gathering and frills add a softer edge to the strong and decisive Matthew Williamson gal but make no mistake, she’s holidaying in Hawaii and she’s about to show you how to partay!
