As Paris Men’s week closes or opens (who even knows at this point?) and everyone is probably crying about how much they love Louis Vuitton, I’m still jabbering on about London Collections and all its wonders! To conclude the, highly popular, three part post on London Collections I will be discussing Matthew Miller.
| Hold on to your seats, it’s about to go down! |
I really loved this showing from Matthew Miller shock horror; I actually loved it so much I’m not sure what to talk about first. The print was great, the colour pallet was great, the models were great, Matthew Miller is great, I’m great, you’re great, and I’m getting carried away.
Shall I tell you how much I loved the layering in this show? This much, you can’t see but I’m holding my hands really far apart, that’s how much! Obviously no autumn/winter collection is worth looking at, let alone blogging about, if it does include some Class-A layering and this collection has taken it home as my favourite for fall ’16. It’s given me so many ideas that I’m actually not going to wait until next winter to try them out, f*&% the rules! I tried out the white shirt, denim jacket, and Crombie look a few weeks back so you can assume that will be coming up on the blog when I start style blogging (yes, I’m going to start style blogging, don’t hate me!).
I’ve read a few reviews on the collection being inspired by anti-establishment and stuff but if I’m honest I just saw beautiful clothes put together well. I didn’t see rebellion in the any of the outerwear; I just saw sublimely cut overcoats and jackets. And I wouldn’t call the raw edges, used on the leather print garments, a f*&% you to the establishment, I would call it a timeless detail reinventing itself year-on-year. However I tend to miss the point on what collections are inspired by because that information doesn’t really interest me too much.
That all being said, I can’t think of anything more irritating than a collection that is so literal it could be used in a theater production of the subject. So, I thank Matthew Miller for being a designer that can be inspired and translate his inspirations into collection I want in my wardrobe. Thank you Matthew Miller.
This concludes my three part post on London Collections, it’s a little all over the place but I hope you enjoyed all the same.
