I’m usually all for checking out fashion designer collabos, especially when it means getting a piece of luxury design at prices that don’t equate to the monthly mortgage. The launch of the Matthew Williamson for Macy’s capsule collection tomorrow is no exception, with the unveiling of limited-edition spring separates and ’70s-inspired dresses priced between $50 to $300.
So far, I’ve gotten a preview of a couple sketches and pre-launch press images from the women’s wear collection, which looks to be a mix of playful cocktail sheaths that can go from day to night (see above), tops, scarves, leather and suede pieces in bold colors and retro prints, including bright florals.
A graduate of the famed Central St. Martins College of Art and Design and formerly the creative director for Pucci, Williamson co-founded his own namesake brand in 1997, and has recently expanded into menswear. Williamson will be the second in Macy’s designer capsule collection series, which kicked off with fellow Brit, Kinder Aggugini, in February. Here’s what I’ll be doing on my lunch tomorrow…
WHAT: Matthew Williamson Collection Launch Party. Informal modeling, DJ entertainment, and gift giveaways with a $75 purchase of Matthew Williamson for Impulse Collection (while supplies last).
WHEN: Wednesday, April 13th from 12:00- 2:00 PM
WHERE: Macy’s Union Square San Francisco, Impulse, Level 3
