Matthew Ames Womenswear A/W10

Core classics get a reshaping.

PhotographyShawn Brackbill

Over the last few seasons, Matthew Ames has really honed his aesthetic into a distilled idea that plain and clear shapes that communicate a sort of stark serenity not seen in many collections in New York. This season, that idea is further developed with the help of masses of soft and supple leather. In shades of tan, beige, blush pink and black and in oversized t-shirt shapes, jackets with draped hoods, these pieces propelled the collection forward into a new era of minimalism that we're craving. The harem trousers that are made to move also re-appear, albeit in smaller proportions and skirts are boxy and short to accentuate the voluminous upper half.
