In an exclusive for H&M, Williamson will debut his first ever menswear pieces.
Matthew Williamson burst onto the London fashion scene in 1997, with a colorful collection modelled by Kate Moss, Helena Christensen and Jade Jagger. Since then, Williamson has brought the party lifestyle of the global traveller to the catwalks of the fashion world; most recently at New York Fashion Week. His clothes are worn regularly by PLuSHanistas such as Sienna Miller, Keira Knightley, Kate Hudson and Gwyneth Paltrow. Last year he was honoured with an exhibition at the Design Museum in London. http://www.hm.com/us/press/pressreleases/fashion/fashionpressrelease.ahtml?pressreleaseid=721&nodeid=334
