H&M Gospel According to Mathew10:34 AM
MATTHEW WILLIAMSON for H&M
No doubt hoping fashion lightning strikes with his first collaboration with H&m (as it has with guest designers like Karl Lagerfeld and Viktor & Rolf), boy wonder Mathew Williamson (below) incorporates what he calls "incredible bolts of color". It's all very optimistic---an antidote to the times," he says. Several key pieces you'll have to fight longtime Williamson fan Sienna Miller for: the structured electric-blue silk-satin jacket ("Wear over jeans as a great contemporary statement," he decrees) a peacock motif shift, a studded leathers vest, and a biker jacket the designer does in supple olive-green leather, not the typical black. "This is a good-every-season staple that you can also wear over an evening gown." Later this month, look for his H&M men's line.

As a former Hennes & Mauritz employee (shot out tp Flagship, 5th Ave.!) the H-to the-M always brings feel good, style and events to match. And just like our special guest designers and Madonna from years before; and prices ranging from $49.90-$129.90, I am definitely looking forward to the Williamson line dropping May 14th 2009
