Expensive dresses for stylish, toned, monied people to wear on holiday seems to be the general idea presented by Matthew Williamson, a man who holds the ability to understand his clientele down to a tee rather than a particularly divisive creative vision. Silk-swathed hippie mums with huge sherbet shearling coats trotted down the runway in pointed fringed booties - they might as well have been dashing for a last minute flight to Ibiza from City airport.

In stark contrast to what Style.com writ large across their front page this morning - 'Goodbye Seventies', a nod to J.W. Anderson's eighties homage - for Williamson the decade lives on. Intricate floral prints on burgundy, yellow and white looked almost paisley from a distance and woven gold trousers emphasised that classic luxury bohemian aesthetic that Williamson’s known for. Sure, it’s not groundbreaking, but it is consistent, glamorous and perfectly suited to the shopper. In that sense this collection was utterly on point.
