Nebula, Solar-flare, & Aurora Borealis Influence


A Nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, helium, hydrogen, and other ionized gases.

In these regions the formations of gas, dust, and other materials “clump” together to form larger masses. Those masses in which attract further matter, and eventually will become massive enough to form stars. The remaining materials are then believed to form planets, and other planetary system objects.

The nebula comes in an array of different colors.


A solar-flare is a sudden release of energy from the sun’s surface or solar limb. The burst of energy is around 6 X 10^6 joules of energy.

Basically, it will knock your heels off.

Here’s our compilation of beautiful designs we find similar to the nebula and solar flare from designer Matthew Williamson SS13 RTW.



Matthew Williamson always seems to incorporate something science/technology based when designing. It may not be the most obvious of things, like an image of a bird, for example. This creates more research for us, but we are science nerds who enjoy figuring out the fashion puzzle.

.Aurora Borealis.

The Aurora Borealis is a natural light display in the sky particularly in the high latitude (Arctic and Antarctic) regions, caused by the collision of energetic charged particles with atoms in the high altitude atmosphere.

Aurora is Latin for “Dawn”, therefore, the Greek Goddess of the Dawn was fittingly  named Aurora.

These are from the same Matthew Williamson SS13 RTW Collection.



Similar to Viktor Luna in his passion for developing his own prints, Matthew incorporates things like video images. Collections can be heavily inspired by geometric design and simplistic lines.  We love him for this. Always innovating and forward thinking in his compilations, we will feature Matthew in a number of posts in the future.

He is a fun designer to follow. 

Happy Shopping.
