Showcasing at London’s National Portrait Gallery, Erdem’s FW18 collection ruled the runway in ornate floral prints, shimmery silhouettes and real opulent old Hollywood-inspired looks.
Referencing the mid ’20 and early ’30 Art Deco years, some models pranced down the runway with polka dot tulle covering their retro chic hairstyle with pin curls; sporting brocade decorated on full-length coat, over-sized cape and strapless body-hugging evening gown; all paired with patent oxford platforms.
Erdem kept it classy all throughout with a Gothic glamour approach with a huge emphasis on refined tailoring and intricate sequins embellishment. Towards the finale, there were also a set of metallic looks; a knit sweater with large furry sleeves matches with a midi-metallic skirt and a crisp white blouse worn underneath a silvery dress and topped with a boxy plaid blazer, a clear representation of the timeless symbol of femininity, sophistication and power-dressing. Other gowns were amped up in rich velvets, frills, and feathers perfect for fab all-night parties.
Some looks were great sartorial inventions that are guaranteed to take a long stroll on many streets during the fall season.
