Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday I look forward to receiving my What's New at net-a-porter email! There are always so many beautiful clothes to drool over.  Last week it helped me discover an awesome new designer, Michael van der Ham! I fell in love with every single piece they had by him so I did some research on him. Michael is from The Netherlands and he counts Alexander McQueen as one of his previous employers...pretty impressive! London Fashion Week did a quick Q&A session with him and some of his answers are as follows:
Design signatures: “I like to mismatch different references in each item of clothing. My autumn/winter 2009 collection is a juxtaposition of elements from different decades in fashion. I made each dress like a 3D collage of clashing colours, textures, weights of fabric and cut.”

How would you describe the Michael van der Ham woman? “Someone who's not afraid to wear something a little more bold.”

Trademark piece: “Knitwear with chiffon tops and multi-fabricated dresses.”

Three autumn/winter 2012 inspirations: “It’s hard to answer without giving too much away: very rare and special fabrications, custom-made textiles and intricate cuts.

What does 2012 hold for your brand? “Hopefully more growth like in 2011.”
Here are some amazing pieces from net-a-porter, someone want to buy them for me?! The print mixing and draping is perfection and the pieces are simply gorgeous.
