Until S/S 2013, I've always considered Michael van der Ham’s creations to be more of artistic pieces that can mostly be pulled off on the fashion runway rather than buyers-approved clothes that can be worn in a... real way. I admired his ability to create exquisite fabric collage, but they were impractical. However, Michael van der Ham’s S/S 2013 collection changed my entire perspective on his designs. This S/S 2013 collection is the best I have seen so far from the collage/mixed-media maestro. They're colorful, unique, and most importantly wearable; and yet he managed to stay true to his deconstructed cool aesthetic. My ultimate favorite looks are featured here, they just look perfect for formal dinner, small parties, and receptions.
Now you can shop and pre-order Michael van der Ham’s S/S 2013 collection on Moda Operandi here. The trunk show ends on October 14th.
