This Thursday, April 23, Matthew Williamson’s line for H&M launches in only eight cities around US. The line will also launch at selected H&Ms in Europe and Asia. The April 23rd date is just the first installment of the collection. There will be a second summer collection arriving May 14th featuring swimwear and cover-ups. Williamson is a British designer who has always shown loud, vibrant colors like fuchsia and tangerine in his collections. And his H&M collaboration is true to that vision.
I’m still debating if I am going to join the early morning queue this week to get first dibs on the collection. My local H&M at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles, CA is one of the stores that will be carrying the collection this week. Prices for this line are definitely higher that they were for some of the past collections ($349.00 for a leather jacket.) Also, the colors are rather, er loud which may not lend themselves to year round, budget-friendly dressing. You’ll definitely be a bit of a peacock, as opposed to a shrinking violet, wearing the colorful cardigan emblazoned with the peacock feather. However, I have to admit, I do like this piece. I also like the Peacock dress below, although I would be more inclined to wear it as a tunic rather than as a dress.
