Joan Miró’s paintings and the work of Malian photographer Malick Sidibé inspired Michael van der Ham. The first half of the show focused on prints, with arty brushstrokes and pencil etchings on dresses and skirts in silk organza, crepe and a plastic bouclé. Then came the texture, as van der Ham applied his artful mixology to hand-painted devoré, printed leather, hairy jacquard and brocades. Especially striking was a beaded blue blouse with a skirt composed of flocked, ice-blue tulle and silver sequins on mint chiffon.
