Collection ERDEM RESORT 2019
Canadian fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu in recent collections decided to explore the aesthetics of different eras. In the new collection, the designer decided to turn to the fashionable archives of the 1940s and 1950s. The main source of inspiration for the collection was the work of famous photographers Diane Arbus and William Eggleston. Specializing in documentary photography, Arbus worked from the 1940s to the 1960s and, as a representative of the New York school, stood out for its unique marginal aesthetics. A certain renunciation of Diana’s works was reflected in the collection of Erdem in the form of utilitarian suits and dresses that remind of the freedom and strong position of a modern young girl in society. In turn, William Eggleston’s works were distinguished by a special artistic quality, which added images of romance and airiness.
In the collection you could see the usual for the style of Erdem sculpted dresses from brocade, tulle and silk in floral pattern, which return to the era of Marie Antoinette. Dresses adorned a lot of scarfs, velvet ribbons and pearls, giving them even greater luxury. As the designer tells, his love for diversity led to the fact that the collection has a silhouette for every taste: from a straight to a clearly outlined figure.
