Michael van der Ham’s Luxe Patchworks

What a month this has been for fashion. Firstly, the spring-summer shows where London represented a riot of weird and wonderful madcappery. Notable moments included Mary Katrantzou’s photo-realist prints, Michael van der Ham’s luxe patchworks and Christopher Kane’s‘Princess Margaret on acid” collection (read: twinsets and leather lace in electric colours). Over in Milan, traditionally the city of grey, camel, cashmere and all things commercial, editors choked on their Prosecco as Jil Sander and Prada led a merry procession of inventive colour blocking and graphic shapes. Molto excitement! Meanwhile, Paris served up an ode to punk and disco (I didn’t mind, I like both) with Balmain, Balenciaga and Gaultier in the punk camp – think zips, leather, more zips and mullet wigs all round – while Louis Vuitton channelled Jerry-Hall-at-Studio-54 to high-camp perfection.

What’s interesting is the flagrant disregard for seasons as we know them. For spring-summer, many of the collections were surprisingly autumnal, including gothic make-up (hello YSL’s plum lip and Chanel’s new Black Pearl nail), studded leathers (Burberry goes biker) and sleeveless furs at Fendi. In an age of unpredictable weather and global travel, all-weather dressing looks to be the biggest trend of them all.
