Matthew Williamson for Menswear

You've heard of Matthew Williamson because he recently dabbled in menswear when he produced a few looks for a collection he designed for H&M.

February 2010 will mark the retail debut of  his own menswear line which will consist of cashmere sweaters in bright hues(bright green, electric blue and deep pink); cotton silk T-shirts with an embellished beetle motif; and silk and wool scarves adorned with stars and paisley prints. He's hoping his spring line will be well-received so that he can expand the line into suits, shirts and jackets. Prices will start at $310 at current exchange for a printed wool scarf to $717 for a printed cashmere sweater. They will be sold at Williamson's stores in New York, London and Dubai and also at his online store beginning of next month. Harrod's in London will also carry his line in their menswear department.
