IN A NUTSHELL: Yes there was Van Der Ham's trademark mix of eye-frazzling pattern and pick 'n' mix textures, but it felt like he'd slowed thing down for something a little less frantic and a lot more laid back. This inspiration came courtesy of photographer Joseph Szabo and all things grunge.
BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: The focus was on separates and we adored lustrous and lust-inducing brocade slim-cut trousers that just skimmed the ankles and worn with collage print T-shirts. The pattern-tastic ensemble was rounded of with Michael's custom-printed Louboutins. Summer wardrobe sorted (in our dreams at least).
F-ROW: Anna Della Russo, Lulu Kennedy, Susie Bubble - all quietly attempting to out do each other with their eccentric styling.
VERDICT: This was pure Van Der Ham, but his signature eclectic, sporadic and patched approach to design was infused with the restrained elegance of early 60s silhouettes - but instead of feeling retro, the results felt just right for now.
