COLLECTION / MATTHEW MILLER

When browsing LFWM on Business of Fashion, I came across a collection by designer Matthew Miller for autumn of 2017, showcased on Saturday, January 7th.  The collection consisted of 21 looks; both male and female, with a beautiful simple colour palette of black, white, burgundy and hints of a delicate leaden-blue.

Vermilion red was also incorporated within this palette through the models make-up and/or accessory; some having lines from their nose or eyes or a subtle printed scarf draped around their head, shoulders or in hand. In particular, I’m taken by the choice of models – with many having resemblance to pixies or similar mystical beings. I feel this is an interesting yet brave choice, as focus may be diverted from their clothes to the model. However, I do not feel this is the case as Miller has thought well about the differentiation and contrast for these two to work well together. Interesting models making simple clothes appear desirable.

Miller kept consistency within his collection, with the middle parting hairstyle and all flat footwear choices, showing these still relevant trends (despite the push for the return of the stiletto / Vogue). The oversized feel of some of the garments feels entirely relevant due to the decision of layering in different textures and fabric weights, allowing the outfits to flow.

“I never saw beauty as being something that was a physical object. I fundamentally see beauty as being a moment in time, a fleeting feeling, a scar, a memory, an experience, a sense of freedom.” – Matthew Miller

Last week, the lovely people at House of Sunny invited me down to their studio in London to view some of their current pieces as well as their upcoming Autumn/Winter collection and try on some of their garments.
It was an amazing experience which allowed me to get an inside view on how their beautiful garments are designed and made.

I tried on two outfits whilst I was there, one being their never seen before striped silk outdoor pyjama set which is part of their upcoming A/W15 collection which I am so in love with! The detail put into their garments is just amazing along with the fact all their patterns and garments are made by hand in their studio.

After leaving the studio, I did some shopping around London and went to the Oxford Circus Topshop which stocks some of their garments. I picked a few for myself; the ultra shirt and the ribbed crop top which I worn non stop since I bought them and I will be featuring them in many future blog posts.

Thank you once again to Sunny and everyone at HoS for inviting me down to their studio! If you haven’t already, make sure you check out House of Sunny for beautiful clean aesthetic pieces which can easily become staples in any wardrobe.
