Walk Like An Egyptian
Susanna Lau's view of New York S/S 2012

Michael Angel has downgraded from flashy shows and for some, flashy prints to presenting more subtle collections in low key situs. The downgrade is a good call though as he lets his fabric choices do the talking in this collection inspired by his mother's Egyptian roots. John William Waterhouse's painting of Cleopatra is distorted on this sleeveless trench but that's about as literal as it gets as he explores the surfaces of ancient ruins through pre-pleated fabrics and heavily texturised cottons.
