A master of print, embellishment, attention to detail, and kaleidoscopic color, fashion designer Matthew Williamson has made his debut in the world of interiors with a brand-new collection of fabrics and wallcoverings for Osborne & Little—the EDEN collection, which has officially launched this month.
“Having my own interior design collection has long been an ambition of mine and I’m thrilled to finally see that ambition start to come to life in collaboration with Osborne & Little, whose products I have long admired,” said Williamson.
For EDEN, Williamson brings from the world of fashion his unique and instinctive approach to color with the use of cerise, jade, lemon, rose, amethyst, teal, metallics, cobalt and electric blue in designs which give a modern interpretation to ancient myths and legends.
“The current trend for decorative patterns with subtle embellishment and a fashion-led color palette is perfectly represented by Matthew Williamson in EDEN,” said Peter Osborne, CEO of Osborne & Little.
The collection is comprised of seven fabrics including Pegasus, Ocelot, Cheetah, Sunbird, Eden Stripe, Empress and Celestial Dragon; and eight wallpapers including Pegasus, Ocelot Ombé, Sunbird, Empress, Celestial Dragon, Peacock, Tyger Tyger, Imperial Lattice.
Nature is a constant source of inspiration for Williamson who has often referenced "synthetic nature" in his fashion collections. The collection is daring, reflecting his inimitable juxtaposition of the natural and artificial, while embodying 1970s glamor.
A graduate from Central Saint Martins College, Williamson showed his critically acclaimed debut collection ‘Electric Angels’ in 1997. Celebrating 15 years in fashion last year, the brand’s inimitable style has long appealed to both celebrities and industry insiders alike and counts long-time friend Sienna Miller amongst its many devotees.
