After performing in Paris for several seasons, Matthew Williams traveled to Milan, where his design studio is located, to show off his 1017 Alyx 9SM fall watch collection. He takes over an unadorned church, its walls showing signs of decay and abandonment, and fills it with a few socially distant guests and throbbing music. The second part was produced by F1lthy, a friend of Williams, a Philadelphia-based producer and mastermind of the Working on Dying collective.
As the first model passed through the aisles of the church, the drones and automated cameras frantically moved around to give viewers a glimpse of the beautiful vibe of the church from afar. collect. These are the clothes seen in motion, for all the layers on the man and the sensuality that the female bartenders exude.
Williams’ streamlined, industrial-inspired design ethos has been softened this season with unusual details: ostrich feathers trimmed to men’s hoods, tulle drapes gently snaps over the collarbone to create steamy-looking PVC women’s miniskirts.
They convey a more intimate touch, which the designer describes as “natural technology”.
“Honestly, I only make clothes that I feel like. It may sound a little selfish or narcissistic, but I’m just doing things that I enjoy in the hope that other people will enjoy them too,” Williams said backstage. “It’s about evolution, not revolution.”
Women wear body-hugging dresses covered in crystal mesh and razor-sharp cuts with metal clasps, or beaded evening gowns layered over tuxedo pants. Such looks are suggestive of great adults who are still infatuated from time to time.
As the beats grew stronger, the men stamped on the latest version of the Mono shoe, a single, seamless molded EVA foam finished in matte or wet black. They wear layered puffer tops studded with metal studs and knitted inserts, hourglass-shaped boiled wool coats and designer pants, the latter with nylon details.
This decisive and mature collection proves Williams is not an ingenious designer.
