The elegant-warrior army was out at the Mattijs show with Vauxhall Fashion Scout this morning.  The collection was introduced powerfully, with the Star Wars theme echoing through the auditorium; it was at this point that Mattijs unleashed a torrent of other-worldly creations.
Gold was a dominant colour throughout, in the form of belts, shoes, embellishment, and entire dresses.  As well as this, bold colour-blocking was used in abundance; giving authority and life to the stunning collection.  
Silhouettes varied, from sculpted suits at the beginning of the show, to voluptuous jackets and waterfall pleats at its conclusion.  However, evident throughout was the theme of the feminine warrior, and of fierce independence; defining the Mattijs show as contemporary and thoroughly unique.
