Erdem Resort 2018 Collection

The Turkish designer Erdem Moralioglu is known for his love of art and his ability to transfer the art into his designs. Erdem was born in Canada but had the honors to study at the very prestigious Royal College of Art in London. He is famous for his feminine designs, colorful and versatile fabrics and unique details. Many celebrities including Emma Stone, Sarah Jessica Parker and the Duchess of Cambridge have flaunted his wonderful designs.

For the Resort 2018 Collection, Erdem got inspired by many of his favorite artists. He relied on the artwork of three abstract artists that were popular back in the 1930s and 1940s.  You can see many bird prints and embroideries on the fabrics that he used from the artwork of Hannah Hoch. Hoch was a German Dada artist, known for her abstract and modern embroideries and designs. Sylvia Fein and Leonora Carrington are the two other surrealist artists that impacted Moralioglu’s work.

Erdem once again decided to play with a lot of patterns and different fabrics. The astonishing detailed embroideries on the unique pieces are mixed with a lot of floral prints. The dark jacquard with beautiful floral motives is definitely one of the highlights of the collection.

Moralioglu created a balance between the luxurious evening designs and the rich fabrics by making the designs less structured and more fun. The elegant frills are strategically placed on many of the dresses.

“I love the idea of tension between something that’s very done up, very structured but also kind of undone. It’s a mixture of things…I was thinking about my woman from the moment she wakes up to when she goes to bed,” Moralioglu said.

Besides the luxurious looks, Erdem offers several laid-back pieces that are very sophisticated. You can see pleated midi skirts in colorful fabrics combined with knitted sweaters and wide belts. The simple long dress and the blouse made of wonderful fabric decorated with blue flowers are perfect for everyday wear. The blouse is virtuously combined with a loose midi skirt made of luxury black lace.

Moralioglu has a very good eye for accessories. He decorated several of his looks with mesmerizing brooches. The eye-catching spider-shaped brooches add a very unique and glamorous touch to the designs. The spider-shaped jewelry is going to be a part of his upcoming accessory collection.
