• Erdem • S/S14 •

I gasped when I saw the pictures from the Erdem show on Monday morning during London Fashion Week. My initial reaction was; 'well the Erdem girl has a rocker boyfriend'. The Erdem girl also is more confident and is oozing sex appeal. I was stunned by the shock to system. At the same time it was refreshing (and liberating for the Erdem girl).

The gorgeous white jacket (with double breast pockets) and side split skirt opened the show. The second look had the side split skirt and was black. The model looked ultra chic, rocking blacked out frames and a cut out jacket. The show progressed into the expected floral looks.

Erdem is the designer known for floral craze but this season his colour palette was a muted and plain black and white. Very autumnal hues but the materials used were airy which gave the summery feel. Look 13 was a hit in my books. A single white feather embroidered onto a square printed black sleeveless dress.

My heart may have skipped a beat when the final look came out. It was astoundingly pretty. A crisp white short sleeve shirt gown with a pointy collar, a feather embroidered and sheer skirt bursting into a white plume. It was... I just adored that look.

Black platform sandals were worn by models. Blacked our sunglasses were also worn. Throw prim and proper out in the London rain because models wore a thin line of kohl around their eyes and their hair was done in messy up-dos.  

A rocker chic collection from the designer I'd least expect it from is the best thing ever. A fashion week gift one might say. Erdem is, has always and will always be one of my favourite designers.
