After Rei, Here Comes Matthew Williamson For H&M!

  • Pin it

The word is spreading fast. That must be in compensation to those who didn’t appreciated the Comme des Garçons line for the Swedish fast fashion retailer Hennes and Mauritz. (even if I can’t imagine who didn’t enjoyed at least one piece from the very special collection!)

The next in line for the Haute Street Fashion is Matthew Williamson. Of course speculations are running wild and imaginations are already burning with desire to know how the collection’s gonna look and when it will be released. For now just this – there will also be a men line from Matthew! And the collections are set to be released at the end of April and mid-May 2009! Let’s cross our fingers! I was really curious to know who’ll follow Rei (someone with a more avant-garde-ist touch than Williamson’s prêt a porter views), but with McQueen already pris chez Target I had no preference. What about you, who you would’ve preferred? (via wwd, photos via)

Rei Kawakubo and Matt Williamson are like Night and Day!
On the avant garde side imagine Gareth Pugh doing a line! But unfortunately he doesn’t have enough notoreity yet. Otherwise is Jeremy Scott considered avant garde?

I really don’t care. Maybe this sound negative but it isn’t, honestly.

Though I would have loved to have a piece by Rei K. but its not worthy all that effort you’ve to made to score a piece….

Williamson is a genius. I am in love with that print dress on the right!

Ever since my fiance proposed to me with a gorgeous diamond engagement ring from I’ve dreamt of looking like a runway bride.

I’d love to wear his dresses down the aisle but especially that new one, its to die for!

Oh lets see. I don’t know but they will find the next big designer to do them a special line.
I do like Matthew Williamson’s clothes though, they are very pretty and feminine.

There was so much speculation about a year ago about Prada for H&M but it hasn’t come to anything..yet!

I feel kind of neutral about Matthew Williamson for H&M, but could there be a pattern here?!
