The Collaboration collection by Erdem and H & M is just a few days away. For the most part, Erdem is hardly a concept, as the designer, with Turkish roots, has gone under all the big names. I think wrongly because designs fashion to dream. His creations offer the best of all cultures.
Erdem Moralioglu, son of an Englishwoman and a Turk, who grew up in Canada, never lost track of his roots. The new history and the centuries-old traditions have also shaped his designs. Punctual fabrics, lush patterns – the entire wealth of the Ottoman Empire is reflected in his clothes. Erdem combines oriental opulence with historical cuts. Tea dresses, inspired by the Victorian era, velvet dresses in dark Blue, coats reminiscent of the Islamic miniature paintings. East meets West.
