If anyone on the London circuit is going to deliver an appropriate response to the tumultuous times Britain finds itself in, it’s Matthew Miller. “Fear Itself” was the title of his FW17 collection, and its show notes cited post-truth politics, suspicion and disenchantment. Sounds like 2016 in a nutshell, doesn’t it?
Bleak social commentary aside, Matthew Miller’s clothing was as sharp as ever. His perfect black trousers, perfect black Perfectos and perfect, slimmed down, jacquard nylon bombers all looked dying to be worn, just as they always do. Highlight of Miller’s FW17 offering was a set of plush ceremonial scarves, one of which removed the stars from the stars and stripes (get it?) and replaced them with the slogan “Post Truth Era.”
Amid all the wacky experiments that make the London circuit so enjoyable, Matthew Miller is rock solid. He’s a cornerstone of the British capital’s fashion scene, and it’s easy to see why: he’s always got something to say, and his clothes are always great.
