runway. review.

Ever since I fell in love with a brightly colored sheer tunic with bird appliqués several seasons ago, I've been a fan of Matthew Williamson. His bold colors and prints are always identifiable, and seem like a breath of fresh air when many other designers play it safe with neutral palettes.

His Pre-Fall 08 collection is a mix of vibrant and whimsical maxi and mini dresses, along with layered looks that you could walk right off of the runway and into "real life" in. While I'm not in love with the black tights and metallic silver booties that were paired with nearly every look, the collection seems fresh, young, and is proof that Williamson can hold onto a signature look without becoming staid and predictable.

I really like the brooch on the fur vest. i wonder if it's a separate piece?
