While Fall’s 2011 Fashion Week only wrapped up last week, as the spring season nears, it all seem miles away. And nothing signals the beginning of spring like the appearance of a lighter wardrobe-well at least that’s how it plays out in the fashion world. With his Spring 2011 Collection, Erdem Moralioglu transports us into a warmer climate with ballet-inspired dresses, harlequin patterns, and gorgeous poppy prints.
Moralioglu who gathered his muse from the Ballets Russes’ costume archive, explained, “The shapes were all about the ballet.” Fitted bodices and stiff A-line skirts done in red or white lace showed off the structure and flou of a ballet costume, while stunning Nicholas Kirkwood shoes of the same print tied up the calf like ballet slippers.
Pirouettes aside, Erdem’s delicate details that have garnered him an ever-growing global fan base including celebrities Michelle Williams, Leighton Meester, Lea Michele, Keira Knightly, Kate Bosworth, and Vogue’s very own, Anna Wintour-(several of the names mentioned above have already been spotted wearing some of Erdem’s Spring 2011 creations)-,are in their purest form for his Spring 2011 collection. Lace appliquéd with more white lace, Swarovski crystals scattered across the diamond shaped patterned bodices, as well as the designer’s signature over embroidery, showed off Erdem’s mesmerizing craftsmanship and artistic vision. Keeping up with the season’s trend, Erdem also presented a subtle assortment of gauzy floor-length gowns that showed off just the right amount of sex appeal through thigh high slits and sensual floating trains-perfect for the red-carpet.
Light floral prints along with a color palette that mainly triggered whites, yellows, and greens (with the exception of a couple of bold red flowers that were super-pigmented and vivid), set a lighter tone for the Spring season.
