Erdem finds a place between the ethereal and the severe for Fall/Winter 2014 with an eccentric collection that focuses on tactile versatility and fantastic decorative details. His first act was to laser away the weight from dense fabrics. Therefore, the show launches with lush velvet dresses tattooed with cut-outs, a look that transfers readily to a lovely cape trimmed with cut-out paneling.
Meet the new Erdem: all grown up and ready to transform you into the type of eccentric style icon you’ve longed to be.
Day or evening – the effect works for both. Erdem continues to defy our expectations with minute adjustments to his signature looks. He shows oddball dresses like a plain satin shift finished with twisted ivory fabric around the throat and shoulder, and a frock that balanced a glossy reptile bodice with an ivory crêpe skirt touched with random patches of sequins. Embroidered lamé minidresses, sparkly jacquard suits, and glittering cage-like mesh overlays are fanciful elements that make memorable moments on Erdem’s runway. Surprisingly, his iconic floral medley takes a back seat to more extravagant textures. However, the few botanical looks he showed were gorgeous, and well-edited. Meet the new Erdem: all grown up and ready to transform you into the type of eccentric style icon you’ve longed to be.
