Immaterial: Erdem's Taroni Silk Print Dresses

Immaterial: Erdem's Taroni Silk Print Dresses

Walker Percy said in The Moviegoer that there is a particular gnosis that comes from train travel. This spiritual knowledge must be Erdem Moralioglu meant he said his printed silk dresses, like the one featured in Fall Top Five photo editorial, are "like a landscape speeding past when you're on a train." Ephemeral, delicate, and deeply moving, these dresses speak to us.

Now, our experience with Amtrak is not quite so beautifully blurred, but a Bullet train's swooshing seems a delightful metaphor for a kind of European modernity that takes a high tech perspective to an aging tradition. You see, Erdem was able to design this series of dresses using double duchesse Taroni silks. Integrating bracing modern lime, purple, acid yellow, and orange prints with silk from Como's oldest operating weavers is exactly the kind of lateral thinking we embrace here at Coutorture. Indeed, we we have already featured the Fides Silk gown once in an Immaterial post while promising to use it in a wider editorial. The variety of silhouettes Erdem features using the same basic pattern showcases just how flexible this print series can be. Thus when we were able to feature the Statina Dress you can imagine we were pleased as punch.
