After showing in Paris for several seasons, Matthew Williams decamped to Milan, where he took over a deconsecrated church to parade his Fall/Winter 2022 coed collection for 1017 Alyx 9SM.

Backed with beats by the Philadelphia-based producer F1lthy, his collection once again pushed the boundaries of streetwear design.
Halfway between luxury, New York punk and Californian streetwear, his collection reinvented certain iconic silhouettes of the brand, featuring a significant focus on shearling as interpreted in a range of silhouettes and colors. The oversized unisex shearling jackets highlighted in various mens and womens looks, have been realised in a unique range of bright collection colors and feature reversed 3D construction detailing. In addition to the oversized shearling jackets, the collection also contains select shearling pieces which have been specially constructed in order to be reversible allowing the wearer the flexibility to easily adapt the piece as they prefer.
Featured heavily this season is the concept of melding the comfort of heavyweight jersey with the protection needed for city living. Working from this idea, the collection has a selection of puffer jackets and vests that have been constructed in fabrics more commonly used in the production of sweatpants and sweatshirts. A number of which have been combined with outerwear fabrics punctuated by a constellation of metal rivets.
The dialogue between the natural and technical continues in the form of unexpected natural and synthetic material combinations such as leather, shearling and nylon, boucle and PVC, textured outerwear wools with nylon and densely knitted jerseys. Pushing the boundaries, PVC, usually used in the making of accessories, is employed in the construction of jackets, coats and sleeveless vests to give exaggerated silhouettes.
And finally, the collection offers an evolution to the brand’s Mono shoes. The ultra lightweight design shoe is made from a single, seamless piece of molded EVA foam given matte or wet-look black finish.
