Stepping out of his comfort zone, fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu explored the contemporary sides of his signature traditional outfits and super feminine floral. And the beautiful parade of Erdem Spring Summer 2013 proved Erdem’s talent in mixing an unparalleled grace of a great craftsmanship, as he offered number of selections in a poetic and sophisticated romantic-modern version.
The emphasis was on the preciousness of textures that each garment is a small masterpiece for Erdem. Throughout his collection, Erdem played a lot with inlays, embroidered prints, scaling and entredeux inserts, overlays of precious materials and transparencies that expressed gently yet relying on clear forms, exclusively built with elegance and a rigorous eye. There were laces and crochets that shared space with stones applications, while flowers prints contrasted with python.
Pencil skirts were the star of this collection, emerging, even in longer designs and with side slits, while the appearance of nipped waists, strapless sheaths, comfortable and relaxed flared trousers, and shirtdresses were sometimes updated with a touch of transparencies and well positioned cutouts, beautifully combined with matching T-bar shoes with a chunky wedge
Among the selections offered, there were rigid volumes and oversized blouson coats, knitted inlays of leather and python as well as geometric lines of pleated skirts and bodice in python and Chantilly lace. Beautiful apparels like dresses with stiff brassiere and corolla skirt, macramé lace dress with three-dimensional embroideries, and ¾ sleeved tops that worn with skirt in mesh nylon, all stood out the runway in such elegance with a touch of sophisticated femininity. But an even bigger surprise is pairing that reptile print with delicate blue lace and the combination is a winner!
As for the color palette, it came with faded shades of pastels like putty blue, pistachio, and pale sunflower yellow that incarnated in floral flecks of coral, turquoise, and aquamarine neon, promising a textural delight, pretty and sweet, on the vibrant pieces.
