Did Matthew grow up this season or what? I have been a huge fan of Matthew Williamson for many years (we both did an internship with Zandra Rhodes in London, my little claim to fame ; )) and have always enjoyed his off the wall color and print usage. But this season his collection has a sophistication that I have not previously seen from him…and I like it. The prints are great, sort of a hodge podge of many trends out there (floral/paintbrush/ombre), but the colors are exquisite and are a great jumping off point for fall. These are a few highlights, but please check out the entire collection.

I was blown away by the wonderful array of prints Oscar de la Renta used in their latest girl’s dress collection. They have the traditional “girl” color stories, pinks/purples, but also used a wonderful palette of peaches and olive greens for a more sophisticated option. With the mini polka dot thrown in the mix, this is a perfectly merchandised collection! I love it!
