Michael Angel S/S 2011

Michael Angel S/S 2011

What did work in this collection was Angel’s experimentation with texture. Latex layered over printed sarong skirts and men's midriff-baring collared tops nicely highlighted how a variety of textures and shapes can give a dramatic effect on the runway.

Altuzarra S/S 2011
