Profile

This venue is closed.

English designer Matthew Williamson unleashes neon hues, splashy prints, and bold silhouettes in his New York flagship. Opened to coincide with fall Fashion Week in February 2009, the store sports none of the sparse architectural elements or subdued earth tones of meatpacking-district neighbors Rubin Chapelle and Yigal Azrouël. Rather, Day-Glo accents, an array of fiber-optic lights, and techno music blasting overhead create a clubby vibe. In back, one wall is covered with a lush garden of synthetic tropical plants, flowers, and cacti; a fitting complement to Williamson’s vibrant, otherworldly designs. The clothes are clever in their hyperbolic gaudiness: towering, acid-bright heels; a shocking-pink patent-leather-and-snakeskin handbag; a floor-length iridescent sequined gown. Whether you’re buying or simply gawking, the store’s carpeted alcoves, decorated with bamboo birdcages and rococo furniture, are pleasant to linger in.
