Michael Angel just feels like he is finding his groove and whilst his form-making seasons have involved heavy doses of digital print, he is intent on saying that this is not the only thing he is all about. Cue a season entitled 'The New Eceentric' which opens up with structured wind-swept silhouettes that are heavy in all kinds of tactile textures and slowly but surely, some dusky stained-glass window prints seep in, trickling in through laminated lace shells and trimmings. The prints are still sitting pretty but Angel has "found her girl" and she's not just a fiesta of digital printing.

Dazed Digital: Tell us how you wanted to utilise your prints this season?
Michael Angel: It was very important to take the print and make it secondary but not shut it out. I was consumed with these stained glass windows and the colours coming through that as well as thinking about Degas as well. Then I was working with the Madame Gres pleating as well in the print. The textures were mohair, alpaca, snakeskin and everything that felt tactile.

DD: Tell us about that amazing laminated lace!
Michael Angel: I went to some random place and I saw this fabric and I imagined making my shapes with this stuff! It's super light and has an amazing shape to it. I wanted to make everything out of it. I was obsessed with it.

DD: You were talking about finally finding your 'girl' - who is she?
Michael Angel: It started with this photo of these three hippies by Francesco Scuvallo really. She's all about the finer detail but she's a little bit off. She's this new eccentric. I was trying to find a way of keeping this well-dressed high-end girl without losing her edge.Angel finds his new eccentric that moves away from his prints.
