First Look: Matthew Williamson for Macy’s

Macy’s was recently on the radar of fashionistas everywhere with the debut of Madonna and her daughter Lourdes’ clothing line Material Girl. Today, Macy’s unveiled a new collaboration, but with a renowned clothing designer rather than a celebrity. Matthew Williamson is a London-based high-fashion designer who’s had his own shows at London Fashion Week since the summer of 2006. His designs continue to gain popularity in the United States, sported by celebrities like Katy Perry, Leighton Meester, Blake Lively, and Oh Land.

Williamson’s Impulse line at Macy’s is available in the United States, so you can get the London style your favorite singers and actresses are wearing at an affordable price. Almost all of the items in the collection are under $100 (the prices range from $59 to $299), so in this case, it’s okay to splurge! The choices range from flirty, floral dresses to oversized sweaters to chic leather jackets, so there’s definitely something for girls of every style.

Our favorite item? The Grecian Sleeveless One-Shoulder Jeweled Dress, a lavender cocktail dress that can be dressed up or dressed down. Unfortunately it’s one of the pricier items at $119, but that’s still a fraction of what you would pay for a high-fashion dress, even on Gilt Groupe. We also love the Long-Sleeve Leather Motorcycle Jacket, which is the collection’s most expensive item, banking in at $299. But how many orange, genuine-leather jackets does one come across? It’s an investment, really. And the asymmetrical zipper gives it the perfect finishing touch.
