Matthew Williamson for H&M VIP preview- 22nd April

Last night I visited the eagerly anticipated VIP launch preview of the H+M and Matthew Williamson collaboration at the new Regent Street store. For unspecified reasons I was lucky enough to bypass the 500 strong queue of fashion fanatics that went down Regent Street and around the block towards Carnaby Street. Luck would have it that myself and my friend H were positioned at the very top of the queue right beside the VIP entrance where we got to see all the celebrities arrive.

We saw Man of the hour Matthew Williamson arrive on the arm of Miller sisters; Sienna and Savannah who all looked extremely elegant and polished (pictured above). Sienna was wearing a beautiful Aztec inspired dress from Williamson’s AW09 line. Other VIPS in attendance were Jaime Winstone, Pixie Geldof, Jade Parfitt, Amber le Bon and a tardy Misha Baron who had clearly just gone over her heavy eye makeup as she emerged from her vehicle wiping dark smudges from her cheeks.
The designer's 20-piece collection goes on sale in 1,600 H&M stores worldwide today and I feel that it is going to sell out fast. Last night there were still hordes of women waiting to get a sneak preview hours after the doors had opened at 6:30pm.

Expect beautiful Matthew Williamson floating dresses, emblazoned with his iconic print style in addition to peacock feather prints and lots of sequin detailing. Some of the pieces weren’t my style to say the least however a great capsule collection with prices ranging from £14.99 to £199.99 ensuring that there is something for every budget and everyone can buy into a bit of Williamson’s luxury. I myself bought the beautiful patent leather chain strap bag, which can also double as a clutch. Beautifully crafted and a bargain at £34.99 (pictured hanging in-store below).
