The designer apartment, to be launched this evening (1 June) is the second to be unveiled this year, part of Designers at Debenhams' year-long partnershp with luxury five-star apartment hotel Cheval Residences. 

Designer Ben de Lisi intially styled the apartment, which was unveiled in March this year. Matthew Wiliamson's take, showcasing his SS16 collection for Debenhams and a preview of his AW16 collection, includes floor to ceiling windows with views across the River Thames, Tower Bridge, The Shard and City Hall.

Every detail of the room, curated by the designer, has been carefully considered to mix luxury with his own personal style.

Williamson's collection includes paradise-inspired prints, pom-poms and striking embellishment, with a modern Cuban twist. His collection celebrates the arts and crafts movement with historic prints and turn-of-the-century inspired symmetry. Pineapples, peacocks, patchwork layering, beaded cushions and exotic birds are key looks.

Williamson said: "Dressing Cheval Three Quays this summer with my collection is a great opportunity, as it enables all guests to experience the DNA of my lifestyle brand."

Further designers will be dressing the apartment in their own style, including Abigail Ahern, Julien Macdonald and John Rocha.

Guests staying in the apartment will receive a luxury food hamper on arrival and gift on departure, plus exclusive luxury beauty treats and restaurant vouchers to be redeemed in the Debenhams Oxford Street Store.
