The Topshop Show Space this year was the Turbine Tunnel at the Tate Modern – a perfect match for the modern and uber-fashionable London, and the Topshop Show space was the setting for Michael Van der Ham’s A/W Catwalk show.
Like many designer’s this season, though A/W could be seen as the times for muted tones, MVDH chose to keep the collection bright yet elegant. Who said grown up elegance can’t be fun?
Wearable sequins sparkled on serene navy, whilst a shot of orange could be seen merged with pink, and duck egg blue. Burnt orange then merged with copper on silk dupion, oriental-style cut dresses.
Black lace contrasted with shades of blue or over bright yellows, lace skirts with a uniquely dropped side hem matched tops with the same detail.
The show was one of contrasts – black merged with lemon yellow, silks over chiffon appliqué, prints and embroidery; definitely a refreshing change to the A/W colour palette.
