Summer is all about making that great escape to some exotic beach destination and revelling in the sun, sea and sand. Marking the launch of THE OUTNET’s new Summer Shop, British fashion designer Matthew Williamson imbues this sun-drenched collaboration with the alluring spirit of holidays and travel.
Favouring a bold use of colour and mixed prints, Williamson is renowned for his highly recognisable aesthetic, making his clothes a popular choice among celebrities like Blake Lively and Pippa Middleton. He once mentioned in 2009 that his “design philosophy is to make women feel like peacocks”, and that is immediately apparent in the colourful prints adorning these pieces.
With 14 ready-to-wear pieces and 12 swimwear styles, this limited edition collection showcases his mastery in the use of kaleidoscopic colours. Featuring the label’s signature use of delicate silk chiffons, the resort wear channel a refined yet spirited sense of glamour, making a perfect addition to your holiday wardrobe. Dresses, cover-ups, bikinis and one-piece swimsuits will steal the spotlight with their bright jewel tones, hot hibiscus pinks and reds, and ocean-inspired purples and azures.
Travel is one of Matthew Williamson’s main inspirations, and it shines through in the collection’s bohemian designs. Consider us unsurprised if you suddenly feel the urge to pack your bags and head straight for Ibiza!
Prices from £115 to £595, available at theoutnet.com.
