Lulu having a rough day,” Michael van der Ham said about his fall 2013 collection showcased at London Fashion Week. The Dutch-born designer, who makes clothes for women who are not afraid to be different and wear something a little bit bolder, displayed a ladylike line with a slightly dark touch. There were perfectly tailored goodies and jaw-dropping combinations of textures and prints. Exquisite as always, his collection for fall 2013 had a more refined touch that the previous ones.
Master of deconstructed cool, Michael van der Ham’s line for the upcoming cold-weather season featured flawless shapes and outstanding embroidered cutouts. The pieces in his fall collection were wearable with a vintage-inspired flare. The London-based designer, who confessed that he loves to try new techniques and that it’s always fun to develop your personal ideas, amazed the audience with a never-seen-before approach. Still, his famous precision-cut silhouettes were present!
At London Fashion Week, Michael van der Ham brought rather polished goodies. The designer, who teamed up with Brora in order to create a 12-piece knitwear capsule collection, surprised his devotees with tailored skirts and cropped pants, elegant coats, cashmere tops and beautifully printed blouses, and items featuring sculpted cutouts, inside-out jacquard, brocade and heavy embellishments. Well, this was a special line oozing a particular delicacy and femininity. The designer’s collage signature was still there yet it was not that visible.
When it comes to the color palette used, there were mostly autumnal shades such as brown and burnt red but also pops of blue and wild leopard prints. Michael van der Ham fall 2013 collection also included some evening-appropriate dresses and sheer pieces perfect for special occasions.
