Matthew Williamson did away with his digitally inspired prints this season, and opted instead for botanical motifs, hand-drawn daisies and dragonflies over loose, languid silhouettes. “I wanted the prints to look like a five-year-old girl had done them,” the designer said. “It’s a less precise take on pattern and print — abstract with no sharp edges.”
Big, cartoonish flowers blossomed over floor-sweeping tunics and sheer blouses, while dragonflies of various shapes and sizes appeared on belted silk dresses. Skirts and cropped jackets, some in shades of pink and purple with a dip-dyed effect, were abloom with appliquéd daisies and sparkles, while mint green firefly brooches alighted on one long white dress.
