Ashley Williams Sent Sperm Prints Down the Runway for Fall/Winter 2019

Get a backstage look at the show featuring Adwoa Aboah, Pixie Geldof and more.

Closing out the first day of London Fashion Week’s FW19 season was Ashley Williams, whose collections never fail to leave us anything but wishing we were half as cool as her. Opening this show, which was dubbed “Power Nap,” was the city’s favorite model, Adwoa Aboah, dressed in a fuzzy black fleece with a repeat sperm pattern which proved to be a continuous theme throughout the collection as we saw sleek sperm prints on silky dresses, skirts and pants as well as well as a retro headband sporting a more obvious phallic graphic.

In true Ashley Williams style, there were graphic prints aplenty throughout the entire line, ranging from her trademark tiger print to camo, plaid and pussycat illustrations to harlequin mohair cardigans, devil-print tights and trippy tie-dye sweatpants. If, like us, you were wondering if those signature sparkly hair slides would make a reappearance this season; they did. Even more excitingly, Williams spun those slogans into glitzy embellishments on the footwear which was produced in collaboration with Jimmy Choo.

Alongside stilettos with oversized ’80s-inspired bows (which also appeared on the model’s hair, done by long-time collaborator and fellow cool girl Alex Brownsell of the legendary Bleach London salon) were timeless ballet flats adorned by “100%” and “GIRLS” emblems and our personal fave, strappy stilettos with all-over glimmering “100%” crystals. Additionally, the collaboration also featured a fuzzy green handbag and matching lanyard.

Announcing her partnership with the luxury footwear label, Williams shared: “Jimmy Choo is a brand I’ve been aware of and have loved since I was a teenager. To work with them on this collaboration – for them to trust me and to work to bring our combined vision to life – has been a dream.”
