Forget about brights and pastels, Fall 2013 marked a moody season for Michael van der Ham who showed a dark collection of print-on-print and deconstructed looks. Cutouts on many of the tops allowed contrasting prints to show through, showing off the designer's mastery of piecing together patterns and colors. While textured dresses, sheer panels, embroidery and applique gave an ornate, and at times vintage, feeling to the designer's eveningwear.
