ErdemSpring Summer 2015 Top 10 Collections of the Season

Runway Review
11/26/2014 Ed Kavishe/fashionwirepress.com

Lively prints are the things that make most London designers delirious with glee each season and no one of them knows patterns better than Erdem Moralioglu. His horticultural proclivities are renowned and coveted all over the globe, as are his lacy, delicate frocks. For Spring, he naturally showed plenty of both and charmingly so: fitting when considering verdant plants were situated beside the runway which was staged in the naked Selfridges Hotel.

His inspiration for the collection stemmed from the works of English Victorian biologist and botanical artist Marianne North whose influence could be seen in high-neck lily print gowns with long sleeves, a collared broderie anglaise maxi number with a bow detailing the waist, calf-length mock neck dresses, and austere suiting with ruffled necks.

That chaste spirit gave way to sexier glamour with plunging necklines, feather-detailed frocks, thigh-grazing mini dresses, and sheer wispy frocks. There was a sparkle and an airiness to the assortment which was just right for the season at hand. A black long-sleeve stunner with ruffles and tiers was tame in silhouette but sultry due to its open knit fabric, while a white knee-length dress skewed seductive with mesh insets. Knee-high ankle wrap sandals anchored the looks in modern sensuality.

Erdem excels at dainty docility and he carried out his signatures flawlessly here. The lineup wasn't any more functional or practical than past collections, but none of that mattered with designs that were so alluring and irresistible.
