Michael van der Ham's dazzling way with texture and print was in full effect at the designer's Fall 2013 show in London Monday, but this time around, the dazzle was tempered with hint of darkness. In a subdued palette of navy, black, rust, and pale olive on a tactile mix of chiffon, jacquard, and printed silk, the designer offered up looks that felt wearable yet luxe. Round-shouldered jackets and drop-peplum tops inspired by vintage couture were paired with slim-cut ankle pants and crewneck sweaters for an eclectic, youthful vibe, while shift dresses and silk blouses peeked out beneath structured tops that had been cut away with oversize, "moth-eaten" holes.
