Runway Report: Erdem Pre-Fall 2017

runway-report-erdem-pre-fall-2017-1Erdem has always been a favorite label of mine. Since we first saw the brand start to build momentum with the support of Keira Knightley and Sienna Miller, two of the most influential faces of British fashion and film, back in 2007 and 2008. Since then Erdem Moralioglu has grown his label to include collaborations with shoe labels and sunglass labels, as well as his celebrity following. Each of Erdem’s collections top the last and that is exactly what has happened with the Pre-Fall 2017 collection. For this collection Erdem Moralioglu looked at two of the era’s most referenced from the Spring 2017 RTW collections, the 1940’s and the 1970’s. Both are high points of glamour and interplay with each other very well. The voluminous shoulders evoke the 40’s while the flowing silhouettes and ribbon bows all remind me of the 70’s. What I also seem to see is a tinge of dark romanticism and that just makes the collection just that much more intriguing to me. My favorite look from the collection, though it was hard to pick just one, has to be the yellow and black brocade gown which features a high turtleneck collar, high low hem, and blue and purple embroidery. I think that this gown would be so amazing as a maternity look for Marion Cotillard, chic awards season look for Felicity Jones, or an interpretation of her character for Emma Watson to wear while promoting Beauty and the Beast.  runway-report-erdem-pre-fall-2017-2Other stars that I would love to see bring this collection to life on the red carpet include: Emma Stone, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Nicole Kidman, Cate Blanchett, Alicia Vikander, Michelle Monaghan, Sarah Jessica Parker, Ruth Negga, Karlie Kloss, Greta Gerwig, Olivia Wilde, Kiernan Shipka, Lupita Nyong’o, Erin O’Connor, Elle Fanning, Charlize Theron, Emilia Clarke, Mia Wasikowska, Emily Blunt, Lea Seydoux, Sophie Turner, and Zoe Saldana.
