The Autumn-Winter season from Michael van der Ham is inspired by the 1960's fashion magazine Intro and low-budget 1995 film “Party Girl.” Models walked down the catwalk wearing amazing dresses, including blue sheaths with 3-D flower appliqués, knee-length numbers decorated with big blooms, veiled organza gowns, cotton lace designs. I personally love that continuation of playful easy to wear technique which is street ready and commercial. The color palette is vivid and it comes with bright citrus, pink, cobalt, peach, red, black, orange and dark blue. The new season is full of deconstructed prints, jacquards, knit intarsias, net overlays and bow details. My favorite wardrobe pieces are crystal nembroidered navy skirts guipure lace separates, graphic intarsia sweaters, playful colorblocked platforms and gorgeous Christian Louboutin suede loafers.
Please welcome this outstanding Dutch-born designer Michael van der Ham Spring-Summer collection's runway show, which featured traditional African wrapping references, rich textures and signature patchwork. You are about to see grown-up and polished looks, like A-line shifts, signature cocktail dresses, embellished looks, navy dresses and evening gowns. Designer was inspired by Jackie Nickerson's book Farm, a photographic essay of Africans dressed in exotic fabrics. I love his signature contrasting textures, fabrics and patterns that gave us kaleidoscopic collage effects. You are about to view delicate silk draping, embroidered brocades, printed textiles, glamor touches, bejeweled embellishments, zebra prints, leopard, lime, coral, as well as monochrome palette.
Let's take a look back at London Fashion Week and see Dutch designer Michael van der Ham's Fall-Winter collection's runway show. The main inspiration for autumn season was "tough girl—moody and dark," meaning that designer created not a sweet and light version of his women's ensembles, yet darker and vampire alike look. Models appeared on the catwalk wearing boxy coats, printed blouses, black and white gown with a hammered-metal appliqué, cashmere tops, coats with sculpted cutouts, Christian Louboutin's patent-leather shoes. All in all, new Michael van der Ham collection is about feminine silhouette and luxe fabrics.
The talented master Michael van der Ham was inspired by 1973 book called "African looks" and the hybrid of 1950's and '60's couture shapes in its resort lookbook. You may like here full-skirted dresses, lace jacquard coats accessorized with botanical sequins, printed silk tops, semi-transparent below the knee skirts and delicate boat shoes. Michael van der Ham decorated his fabrics with large floral graphics, which look amazing on model.
Watercolor Fairies. Michael van der Ham presented sophisticated shapes and the layering in his new Spring-Summer women’s clothing collection. I would say it reminded me Alice in Wonderland one moment. Michael’s designs came with plenty of loud and colorful sprints; girly and fresh were dresses, skirts, trousers, little shirts, bustiers. Love watercolor florals and exaggerated prints in little tea dresses, dainty collared shirts and cinched-waist dresses.
