London, UK – One has to love the new collection by London designer Matthew Miller. He opens the show with a solid array of black on black pieces that form intriguing and nearly mysterious garments.
The silhouettes are long and the proportions are at a minimum. Instead of a heavy Saville Row style of tailoring, the designer opts for softer lines in his blazers, jackets and coats. The trousers are cut with two volumes: a) close to the body and b) baggy. A slim sleeve dominates. The looks are made mysterious by the long coats. And the silhouettes are made extremely city-chic thanks to the styling in which a noticeable black belt caps off the affair.
Matthew Miller does toss in a bit of light gray among his knit and wool pieces. He also tosses in a bit of color, though in limited quantities. There is a hint of indigo in the denim; a bit of dark olive-green in the bomber jacket, and even a touch a deep purple in some other pieces. However, they are largely overshadowed by sceneries that are created on the long leather coats with wild string edges.
With this one can arguably state that Matthew Miller has just presented one of his strongest collections in over the past six season. And some may go on to believe that it may shape up to be one of the finest of the season.
