After many bold hued collections the Erdem fall 2013 collection showed us a fab side of Erdem Moralioglu focused around sexiness with a bit of an edge. The trip to the dark side was evident all throughout the collection as the regular prints be a more discreet presence. The change was a bit difficult even for the designer who felt like he left his comfort zone:“I’ve always been quite afraid of the color black in my work, but I liked the idea of doing ‘uncomfortable,’ reacting against myself—and seeing how many shades of black I could get in my show!,” the designer told Vogue.com
He might have abandoned his vibrant floral prints, however he stayed true to his inclination towards ladylike ensembles which dazzle through elegance and sophistication. The Erdem fall 2013 collection brought a myriad of amazing dresses with various accents. If from a proportion standpoint things are kept on the classy side, the different fabrics subtle color additions, by the labels standards. Mixing chiffon, lace and organza, the label has managed to bring a multitude of amazing looks to the show.
It seems like sophistication with a refined touch will be a leading trend for fall 2013, at least for London Fashion Week 2013. The multitude of fab looks had a definite seductive vibe even if at first the classy touch is the one that prevails. The romantic allure is still present and it sure seems like the designer managed to successfully transition from the usual offerings. It sure feels fairly different, however, it’s definitely inviting. Though definitely made to show off a woman’s silhouette, the new offerings aren’t as body con as some of the Erdem offerings from the past.
Still, with plenty of sheer touches that are placed strategically so confidence is definitely required for successfully pulling off these designs. With all the drama highlighted in the newest Erdem fall 2013 collection it became fairly clear that the new options don’t need a lot of accessories in order to finish off the looks. A fun pair of sunglasses or a fab pair of pointy toe pumps were the main accessories spotted. Beauty-wise classiness dominates the scene and natural looks are definitely seen as the best way to impress.
