LFW SS'13 - Erdem

It was the colour palette and textures that drew me to Erdem Moralioglu's show. Sherbety pastels were punctuated with acidic oranges and neon yellow, giving a day-glo pop to the heavily embroidered and appliquéd fabrics. His signature lace was toughened with the welcome introduction of snakeskin, bringing a harder edge to the otherwise typically feminine collection. Inspiration for the show came from Zenna Henderson, a 1950s Sci-Fi novelist, (hence the silhouettes), leading Erdem to create an otherworldly concept, of woman who were trying fit in on Earth...By splicing colours and textures that don't usually mix, Erdem created a desirable and once again incredibly wearable collection.
