Matthew Miller AW13 Catwalk Show
Matthew Miller forms a rebellion against Generation X with anarchic slogans of ‘Born To Fail’ using utilitarian design as a movement.
The autumn/winter ’13 collection sees crocodile embossed leather hides worn over military wool suits with exposed seams referencing the disillusion and loss of stability of the former generation. Technical jersey raincoats offer a new technique of laser embossing created exclusively for the collection.
Matthew Miller teams up with H by Harris through a series of luggage inspired by army-issue field packs, re-made in the colour palette of black, stone grey and red, while jewellery created in partnership with Fannie Schiavoni take on military hardware and tailoring, and a collaboration with Timberland sees Miller utilise the brand’s ‘Design Your Own’ service.
