Matthew Williamson

I've never heard of Matthew Williamson before the opening of Debenhams (british departement store - in the new wing of Bucuresti Mall.
But at my first visit to the new shop, there it was, love at first sight.
Debenhams features limited collection by (mostly british) designers: Jasper Conran, John Rocha, Julien Macdonald and, yes, my new love, Matthew Williamson.

Since 1997 (launching of it's first collection, Electric Angels, in London), Williamson’s collections have continued to strengthen and cement his reputation as one of the UK’s premier designer talents. Among his clients there are lots of A-class celebrities, such as: Madonna, Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss, Britney Spears, Kate Hudson and Helena Christensen.

The collection for Debenhams is called "Butterfly", and it's composed by clothes and accesories (bags, swimming clothes). It's made in Williamson signature style: fun, light, bright colours with sparkling details (lots of gold and pink - maybe that's why i felt in love so quickly :) ). His ultimate glamour creations can now be accesible to everyone.

For me, i bought a cute pink grab bag with badges (shown bellow):

It gives an instant chic to anything i might be wearing. I like to pair it with pink pencil pants from Zara or with skinny washed-colour jeans from Chloe. For tops, i can choose from pink, cream or coral as colours, so i can match a lot of outfits.

You can see Butterfly by Matthew Williamson collection, and even shop it online here:

As for it's main collection, i totally love every piece of it. Unfortunately, it is a little pricey for me right now to buy it all, but i still can dream, right?

This spectrum sequined top can be ordered online from I especially like the way it fits loose around the waist (and of course, the nice colours - i am a sucker for bright, pinky colours).

Other favorites clothes made by Matthew Williamson:

Navy cropped cashmere cardigan with mirror disc detailing. Matthew
Williamson cardigan has three quarter length sleeves, button fastenings on the front, a large ribbed collar and fluorescent pink stitching securing the mirrors.

Gold enamelled diamond pattern bracelet with multi-colored glass inserts. Bracelet has a spring clasp fastening and a small designer embossed trinket at hinge.
