The studio computers were switched for summer’s prints. Digital printing techniques of seasons past were ousted in favour of pencils, paper and paints in a full spectrum of colour – from pistachio and saffron to fuchsia and olive.
Emblems from Matthew’s debut collection have been re-imagined: the dragonfly first seen on the shoulder of a cashmere cardigan and bias-cut dress now flits through silk-chiffon gowns and shirts to ombre effect. Daisies have been doodled in felt-tip in a style inspired by New York street artist Keith Haring.
This gallery of the final prints captures the naive, charming style to evoke an English country garden seen through a child’s eyes.
