Michael van der Ham at London Fashion Week

In the Topshop venue previously used as the Eurostar terminal, Michael van der Ham showed a collection supposedly inspired by the photographs of Joseph Szabo and his brand of laid-back West Coast cool. A bricolage of prints and colours in the interplay of layers that van der Ham is known for, the look was bound together by pleated bands of silk chiffon placed and draped about the shoulder, waist and hip.
