I think most people who are interested in fashion have a handful of designer who they know they can always rely on. I have a strong top five, which inspire me, surprise me and excite me every single time. Erdem has definitely become one of those designers. Being a textile designer I am always excited by Erdem’s choices in colour and textures. I find that his custom-designed prints are always bold, happy and full of colour! Even in his more muted collections, there is such a romantic nature to his work.
I’m really interested to see some images of these pieces closer up. Supposedly there is some beautiful leather lacework and silk printed roses which have been cut out into a textural houndstooth pattern. Dreamy!
I read here that Erdem once told vogue.com that he considers each season “a chapter in the same book. A love story that would be set in a lush English garden filled with “color, optimism, and oddities.”
I like that! I really like that!!!
