hey dar matt

There I was, going through Twitter in the darkness of my room, the only light coming from the streetlamps outside and eerie glow of the computer screen. When all of a sudden, I come across Catwalk Queen's link to Matthew Williamson for H&M pictures! I didn't even know he was designing! I then ventured into my archives (which I usually try to avoid doing...the blog's first few months were...not good.) to find a post I made on good ole Matt this summer.
(I don't actually prefer sitting at the computer in the dark, our light bulb went out. Damn CFL bulbs. What good is saving energy when it makes me spill food everywhere?)The use of prints and textures is like an epic fest of love.
And the H&M pictures from CQ:That's all I've been able to find for now. Very pretty patterns, I like how mixed they are in the first dress. I'm not disappointed necessarily but I hope there's a wider variation of shapes and silhouettes in the rest of the collection.
Based on these photos alone I don't think it'd be worth skipping school for (that's how we judge fancy designers now. Whether or not they are worth the 12 year old playing hooky for.)
I blame Rei. After her collection I have set my expectations way too high.

um. did not know this. epic fail on my part.
i am in loooove with matthew.
when he left pucci i crawled into a ditch and cried.
well, not really, but you get the feel of my pain.
these pictures seem like they're doing no justice.
I MUST HAVE MORE!

p.s. i would kill for Miuccia to do a line at H&M. wouldn't that be sweet?

the man in the second pic looks kinda debonair...
i don't really keep up with actual fashion designers.

lydia said...

oh so pretty! i agree, though, it would great if there were different shapes/silhouettes..

Hanna said...

Looks a little Miami circa 1998 to me. But that could be my allergy to wearing bright colours talking.

You and I need to get together and have a little rantfest. Pronto

Ahh I love Mr Williamson! Can't wait for this!

KD said...

Oh please hon, your first few months were fine! I'm pretty excited for his H&M collection.

Isabel said...

This is, like, the third time I've checked your blog today. I think I'm bordering on stalker territory! But don't worry, I'm a friendly stalker who wants to take outfit pictures for you - not a scary stalker who will kidnap you.

Ashley said...

nothing makes me happier than mixed prints and texture out the wazoo!

Hannah said...

Hey Tavi, I've been reading your blog recently, can't believe I've never commented! So here I am, and haha must say I take my hat off to you! You've also reminded me I need to venture back into H&M on my next visit to town!

Well, have a good new year!
