Erdem Spring Summer 2014 Report: Androgyny With A Feminine Hand

16 September 2013 by

The starting point of today's Erdem show was, as the designer explained backstage, "Etonian uniforms, shrunken seersucker blazers and cadet clothes." But this was no standard rehash of boy meets girl, instead moralioglu said it was a, "weird, broad version of androgyny done with a feminine hand." This meant rugby striped dresses in duchess silk, tanks complete with diaphanous tulle overlays, white buttoned up shirt collars beneath dresses and sweaters rendered in appliquéd posies spotted with cockerel feathers.

Plumes were seen throughout the collection- from tight fitting column skirts created from ordered rows of ostrich feathers and black tulle trailing skirts. They gave a sense of, "weird fragility, making pieces look quite alien," moralioglu said.

Where last season black reigned, this time around fashion's favourite shade was joined with monochromatic white. Silhouettes were supersized by flowing tulle, with the fabric stitched to shoulders and skirts. London's trends were also well represented with asymmetric hemmed skirts and dresses, embellished florals and pleats all on show.

New for this season was an Erdem moto jacket - realised in black lace, bien sur. Elsewhere glittery lace and silvered shimmering metallic finishes added all the glamour a boy/girl could need.
