Erdem goes back in time for LFW
Fashion designer Erdem Moralioglu went back in time for his London Fashion Week show this morning (21Sept15).
This year (15) marks a decade since the star founded his label Erdem, and his Spring/Summer 16 collection is certainly a worthy celebration of his work.
Things kicked off with a dimly-lit runway, with models walking down stairs into the audience's sight. There was a distinct Victorian feel to proceedings, with old-fashioned floral prints, black neck ties and ruffles featuring on one dress. This style was presented in a series of colours and flowery patterns, while another sleeveless dress had ruched material on the front and on the skirt.
Some outfits showed more flesh though, with one model wearing a bandeau top, with barely-fastened sleeves beginning from below the shoulder. With a flash of midriff in the middle, the look was completed with a matching maxi skirt.
Separates made just as much impact on the catwalk as gowns, as another duo in grey and black stole the spotlight. Models sported natural make-up and simple straight hair with a middleparting that didn't distract from the clothes.
Roksanda Ilincic also showed this morning (21Sept15), celebrating her tenth year at the bi-annual event. The Serbian designer is famous for her colour blocks and silhouettes, and her latest show stayed true to her aesthetic. Models first walked out in a series of simple cotton dresses, trousers and jumpsuits in pale hues like white and cream. Splashes of orange and pale blue brightened things up, while black bands around the waist highlighted the feminine form.
Extra touches like oversized billowing sleeves and fabric formed into ruffles added elegance to the overall straightforward range.
Antonio Beradi was all about bold patterns for his Spring/Summer 16 range earlier today. Injecting his Sicilian descent into proceedings, models walked the runway in elegant, silky creations.
London Fashion Week continues this afternoon (21Sep15), with the likes of Christopher Kane and Belstaff showing.
