LFW SS13: Erdem’s Extraterrestrial Garden Party

Erdem, Spring/Summer 2013

Erdem Moralioglu found a new breed of lady to dress up for his Spring/Summer 2013 Erdem collection: the gentlewoman from another planet. He imagined a visitor from another world doing her best to fit in with the well-bred ladies of Earth.

This made for some special moments of wacky prettiness comprised of Spring’s favorite new flavor, python, patchworked with muted ladylike prints in colors of butter and powder blue; and then, later, an floral explosion of bright, bizarrely-colored embroidery collaged and overlaid with peekaboo lacework. Silhouettes ranged from 50’s housefrau to late 60’s print-crazed pantsuits in the ilk of Fall’s ubiquitous Prada and Louis Vuitton offerings.

In all, Erdem created a wonderful mashup of the psychedelic and the immaculately proper – just what all of us aliens on Earth really want in a garden party outfit.
