Well, one thing's for certain about H&M and their designer collaborations: they've got the ginormous billboard lording over the Meatpacking District on lock. First it was the ominous presence of Comme des Garcons back in October, and now Matthew Williamson gets the A-list treatment.
Of all the campaign images, we're surprised they went with this awkward, Matrix-y pose of model Daria Werbowy. Want to know what's even more hilarious? How about the fact that this billboard for Matthew Williamson's cheap H&M line is within sight of his super new, full-priced West 14th Street boutique? Yes, Matthew, we're smirking at you.
