Erdem Fall 2013 Runway
Unlike the usual pastel-bright ladylike fare we're used to, Erdem's Fall '13 collection showed off the designer's darker — sexier — side. And we couldn't have imagined a more beautiful kind of mood swing. Black prevailed as the collection's primary source of "color," with flashes of neon lavender, green, and blue to keep it from veering into all-out gothic territory. Let's call this a case of textural dark romance, built upon equal parts black lace, floating chiffon, and polka-dot details, with ostrich feathers punctuating the sheerest of layers. To add to the drama, day dresses were remade for evening, complete with Victorian-inspired collars and capes, while velvet floral appliqués stood in as a richer kind of embellishment. See how Erdem Moralioglu took his Fall '13 collection to the dark side, right this way.
