Be Still Our Beating Hearts: Erdem Remasters Florals In A Most Surprising Way

Oh look, another collection that has us weak at the knees. Erdem’s latest lookbook just landed on our desks, triggering an instant love affair. Full of monochromes, lace, and faultless precision, elegance is everything, and luxury leads the way for resort '14.
Using pre-collections as a chance to experiment, Erdem’s latest "project" was a resounding success. Looking at his mother’s old holiday photos for inspiration, this resort line is built around the idea of a luxury getaway, by way of flyaway organzas, summery cocktail dresses, and fluid florals.
Throughout the collection, contrast is key. Against a heavily monochromed palette, a bold blue is playful, and lime flora delights. The Erdem signature we know and love lives on, as florals are painted on to leather bikers, and jewelled daisies are added to sweater fronts. (After all, Erdem couldn't not do floral, could he?)
As the master of elegance, Erdem Moralioglu has outdone himself. Essentially, he's introduced an even chicer woman for resort — one with a playful quality and an androgynous streak — oh, how we want to be her.
