Michael van der Ham

It was velvet, but not as we know it, at Michael van der Ham’s second show under the NewGen banner.

The look It was velvet, but not as we know it, at Michael van der Ham’s second show under the NewGen banner. He transformed the traditional fabric using vibrant colours, contrasting grains and patches. Knitwear and outerwear were added, blending classic shapes with original cutting.

Key pieces Deconstructed velvet dresses in a startling array of brights were abundant, with asymmetrical hemlines key. Knitwear drew inspiration from vintage-inspired floral prints, which were worked into jacquard dresses, cardigans and tops, shot through with gold and silver Lurex. Trousers were loose with patches of velvet on waistbands or cut slim and fringed. No two sleeves were the same, with a standout billowing one-sleeved dress.

Commercial appeal Bright velvet dresses will appeal to customers who want to make a statement.
