collection images: michael angel, resort

a wildy impressive set of images were presented in the form of the 2012 resort collection designed by michael angel. i’ve loved the michael angel label’s use of print & have noted the evolution of this label, in design, here on this blog for a few seasons now. seen against dark backdrops, the artwork inspired pieces take on greater life & become alive in each image. incredibly impressive, the collection dabs into a wide set of colors, prints, cuts & silhouettes while accurately representing style from an american perspective. among one of my favorites for the pre-season, for sure. im consistently impressed season after season by the michael angel label; im more than eager to see what they’ll show for new york fashion week.

always displaying an attraction to printed textiles, michael angel presents a modern take on the resort 2011 pre-season. i really loved the forward design concepts & experimentation with print on the collections dresses. though i am continually impressed by angel’s use of prints & respect that with printed design techniques your given endless possibilities; i wonder if this is  an attempt to create & introduce a style signature. is this all we’ll see from this designer? that said, i found the set to be refreshing as many other collections have gone the minimal route. a promising & solid design effort for the resort fashion season.

fall collections, new york: michael angel

the michael angel FW10 collection really impressed me. following his fashion week opening season, last season, angel has followed up the fall season with impressive designs & über-chic construction. i loved the wool pieces that were draped & also loved the prints. i remember last season, angel really focused on print so that design details remains outstanding in my mind. as he is developing a public creative signature his prints give off an engineered feel along the lines of both mcqueen & versace at the current moment. as the colors of those prints provided a balance, the gaments took on neutral, black, brown & shades of blue- every look contained a belted waist. an impressive set, very chic.

runway images: michael angel, ss collection

michael angel opened new york fashion week with his first collection.  alexander mcqueen-esque prints dominated his collection this season & cato van ee opened his runway presentation. i like the future forward construction but worry that the collection is too drenched in prints. it doesnt seem to provide enough variety & in an industry with diane von furstenberg, matthew williamson & alexander mcqueen (as of lately) can an entire collection sell a truck load of prints?im waiting to see what mr. angel has up his sleeve aside from prints.

Michael+Angel+Front+Row+Spring+09+MBFW+zlPZRl8SHmKlset the date: september 10th, 2009 new york fashion week kicks off. the fashion week show schedule is set to be made public tomorrow. FWD reports that australian designer michael angel is set to open as the first designer showing in the tents this year. angel will be showing his fifth collection & is ‘thrilled to be back at the tents’. michael  started out as a senior visual and creative supervisor for a well established australian department store & worked for the brand for an 8 year stretch. soon after, he was then named style director of both melbourne fashion week & the l’oreal fashion festival, also held in melbourne. the launch of his ready-to-wear collection was seen here in new york in the spring of 2008. since then, angel has received ‘critical acclaim and editorial credits’ which also include his feature in the 2008 september issue of the legendary vogue. sounds like a promising new beginning. now is it just me or does the name ‘michael angel’ sound like a clothing store in a low budget area that sells five t-shirts for the price of one?
