Michael van der Ham

Spring 11

The look After two seasons exhibiting with Fashion East, this was Michael van der Ham’s debut solo show. Mix and match fabrics in satin, velvet and jersey lamé featured. The palette fused bright yellow, pink and blue with more autumnal maroon, slub green and grey tones.

Key pieces The patchwork fabric made it look as if garments had been nonchalantly pieced together, but the high-quality execution told otherwise. A key item was a cream minidress with ivy green and lilac panelling and an ice blue parachute-style sleeve that fell like a train to the ankle.

Commercial appeal Despite its quirky elements, this was a wearable collection that stayed faithful to the designer’s signature.

Footwear and accessories Accessories were kept to a minimum, with heeled sandals laced-up with velvet ribbons.
