is a designer of the jet-set Ibiza. Now comes its favorable second-line "MW Matthew Williamson" on the market.
Matthew Williamson looks a bit tired of. Far really finished, but its basic constitution is too beautiful. But through rocking sound, you might say. In recent months he has prepared the launch of its new, cheaper line "MW Matthew Williamson," which is now in stores. His first brand extension, a big step for an independent designer. Actually he had only worked through the 39-year-old says in a very pure, very slow British English, now he is completely ready for a holiday.
A nice transition to the topic that you wanted to talk to him anyway: Ibiza , the island as a style description that is missing in any article on this man.Therefore, Williamson responded even buddha same left to this objection, affirming good his friendship with Jade Jagger, whose "set bohemian jet lifestyle" - also known as "Ibiza flair" - in fact the inspiration for his first critically acclaimed collections end of the 90 had been.
Yes, it has since belonged to the DNA of the brand, and yes, it was very helpful, as designers to have such a strong reference. "But you find yourself this Ibiza thing as well ... really well?" Williamson looks briefly to the side, his cocker spaniel "Coco", then forward again. "Honestly, I myself was only there twice and if you want to know:.. No, I did not particularly Ibiza times I would have liked a home anywhere in the world, but not necessarily there." That would be clarified.With 17 for the first time in India

In his summer collection this year were "Parachute Dresses" to be seen - long flowing silk dresses with lace, the welling up on the catwalk so big that you could have them with parachute-like on some South Sea island to land. It was no surprise that the young designer Pucci committed at that time in 2005 as creative director for the colorful prints of the house. A task which he fulfilled three years or less successfully, in 2008, however, ended by again to concentrate on his own line.
At 17, he had traveled first to India and have been impressed by the people, their environment on the one hand so poor on the other hand was so rich in colors, shapes and materials. "There, I have something like my creative home found," says Williamson.
Which he now relies to some extent, to open his property to a new, younger audience. In England and America is its main line to well established over ten years, his boutique in Dubai has the largest increases, the Russians love his style. But who has less money and more demand for casual wear, was, if anything, has only briefly Matthew Williamson's customer: he in 2009, a collection for H & M designed. Probably he and his business partner Joseph Velosa have been like back then launches the second line, but then came the crisis, the missile?
