An embellished skirt
British designer Matthew Williamson is an eternal traveler, whose explorations of far-flung destinations translate into exotic collections. This season, it was India that inspired him to create richly textured pieces, such as this intricate mini skirt. Wear tone-on-tone for evening with a raspberry silk shirt, or pair with a simple vest for day.
