Erdem‘s winter 2016 collection looks back at the 30s and 40s, which seem to appear nearly everywhere this season, from Thom Browne to Simone Rocha. The dazzling, glamorous souls and tender seduction of the iconic actresses are retrieved in these gold fringes of the transparent silk skirt (pictured above). The man behind the brand, Erdem Moralioglu, approves Lauren Bacall and Gertrude Lawrence as the muses of the season, and their timeless, relaxed, yet ultimately chic attitude is expressed through the pretty floral dresses and meticulously embroidered gowns. But don’t get the Erdem woman wrong – she’s not made of sugar, but looks courageous wearing boots or flats with the aristocratic, English silhouettes of the inter-war elite. The designer tends to look back at the history, mixing references and moody colour palettes – but in the result, each season brings a new character.
