obsession : matthew williamson fall 2011 rtw

I have a new favorite designer, because of this collection.

Inspired by Russian artist Francisco Infante-Arana, Williamson combined geometric prints with beads, lamb, ombre, and patchwork wool to create a vibrant and fresh fall collection.  I love everything about those prints, and how wearable (and cozy) some of the separates look.  Recently I've been loving those Pendleton-type wool blankets with the native geometric squares and triangles in bright colors. 

I am trying to gather inspiration for tailoring - I will go fabric shopping this weekend.  I intend to do some serious bead work on my coat (I know, I know) and I also want to design the outfit to be worn with the coat, so it goes down the runway as a complete look.  I'll give you a sneak hint: the stingray as inspiration.

Though if I find some native print wool, that may replace it.


  1. Definitely a gorgeous love with every piece..

  2. I agree about this collection looking all warm and cosy, but it's always very wearable as opposed to some designers' works. I love the brightness of the prints contrasted with the more muted tones of the the furs!

  3. Thank you :) Oh your blouse must be beautiful! This collection is gorgeous, I love the last outfit, the colours are so soft, perfect for fall and winter :)
