LONDON — After leaving his post as Pucci’s creative director earlier this year, Matthew Williamson was hoping to downshift. Three years of shuttling between London, Milan and Florence had been challenging but stressful, and he was looking forward to a more relaxed working life.
But that was never going to happen. “It’s relentless,” said the lanky, soft-spoken Williamson during an interview at his company headquarters in a posh Mayfair town house. Every scrap of time is taken, and his Christmas holiday in the sun has now become four days in his native Manchester as he fires up for an even busier 2009.
