Matthew Williamson for Macy’s

Friday, March 11th, 2011

From the Matthew Williamson for Macy's ad campaign, debuting Tuesday.

Okay, I won’t make you wait until the April issue to find out what WWD reported today (I had been sworn to secrecy in order to get the scoop early enough for the magazine deadline): Matthew Williamson will be the second in Macy’s designer capsule collection series. The line, which launches April 13 in 225 Macy’s stores, and on, will include embellished day and party dresses, printed scarves, and day-to-evening rompers priced from $50 to $150 (a few leather and suede items will be as much as $300). “The collection aims to capture the essence of the mainline brand, with a focus on effortless glamour; dynamic prints; loosely structured silhouettes and pops of strong color,” Williamson told WWD.

It’s the best sign yet that Macy’s is serious about winning back young, fashion oriented customers. British designer Kinder Aggugini was the first in the designer capsule series – his flowery, retro spring dresses are currently on the floor at select Macy’s including Southdale. Karl Lagerfeld will follow Williamson in the series, WWD reported.

Macy’s also recently launched Bar III private label contemporary apparel for women and men.

Matthew Williamson hits H&M today

Thursday, May 14th, 2009

Williamson We missed out on H&M’s first Matthew Williamson collection, but today, the retailer does right by the rest of the country, bringing Williamson’s summer line to H&M stores nationwide, including Mall of America and Woodbury. It’s all about holiday with long flowing dresses, smocks and caftans in weightless fabrics and warm colors. For the first time, Williamson is doing menswear – inspired by his own style. Think proper Englishman traveling the world, mixing classics with ethnic flavor, like a seersucker blazer worn over a Cuban-style print shirt. The comprehensive collection includes accessories and swimwear for women and men. And all of it is at H&M’s usual budget-friendly prices. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc.
