With photographer Nobuyoshi Araki as this season’s muse, Matthew Williamson looked to the Far East for his resort collection — Tokyo, to be exact, in both its urban cityscapes as well as its traditional Japanese gardens. The mash-up of nature and metropolitan was most apparent in Williamson’s prints, all electric and visually arresting. Among the highlights were the pretty landscape graphics (complete with high-rise buildings nestled in the mountains) on silk dresses and trim button-downs. He kept his silhouettes fairly clean too, the better to flaunt those great patterns and intricate embellishments. A fluid kimono dress featured pretty florals to one side; simple jersey T-shirts came emblazoned with a photo print of Tokyo street signs, while skirts and separates were bedecked with feathers, pom-pom details, metalwork and silk-thread embroideries.
