Oh! Oh! Matthew Williamson for H&M

Oh my god! I am still excited over the Comme des Garcons collection, still trying new ways of wearing the items i managed to buy, and H&M releases the name of the future designer collaboration.

Forget about Karl, Viktor & Rolf, Cavalli or Rei Kawakubo. This time, the guest designer is the one and only Matthew Williamson, my favorite designer ever. Reading the news, i instantly thought about all the joys my beloved Buttterfly by Matthew Williamson for Debenhams pink bag brought me.

The British designer whose colour-drenched collections always carry the promise of the sun said about its upcomming collection for H&M:
“It is an incredible opportunity to be working with H&M, creating a ‘Matthew Williamson for H&M’ capsule collection. I love the fact that H&M have created a new phenomenon in fashion through the pioneering concept of collaborating with high-end designers to create one-off limited edition capsule collections. I am thrilled that my creations for H&M will be accessible to and hopefully enjoyed by so many people around the world.“

Starting with an exclusive women’s fashion range at selected stores April 23, then continuing with the perfect men’s and women’s pieces for Summer available from mid-May in all H&M stores world wide. In an exclusive for H&M, Williamson will debut his first ever menswear pieces.

“Matthew has such a good eye and a way for working with prints that he mixes up in a new way. When he combines these things, you get a very contemporary London look. It’s for people who want to look special, but his clothes can also be worn in a nonchalant way- you can really play around with them. He is fantastic with piling on colour - it’s a very stylish collaboration for H&M, and very much in line with the way we’re thinking about fashion for spring/summer,” says Margareta van den Bosch, Creative advisor at H&M.
