The LA Times really likes Matthew Williamson's menswear for H&M, which is the British designers first-ever collection for men. "Despite his penchant for hot pink and bold prints, he's created a wearable men's line that could work for preppies and pop-star wannabes alike. There are bright pink jeans, and a pink and blue tie-dye top whose appeal is probably limited to 'American Idol' contestants. But a cream seersucker suit and short-sleeve Cuban-inspired shirt are island cool and would work for summer weddings or pool parties. There are also edgy, casual pieces such as a black hoodie with neon prisms printed on the front and an amazing navy blue leather blazer with motorcycle-jacket detail and graphite-colored studs on the cuffs and lapels." Sounds...dramatic. [LAT]
