PASSIONATE PATTERN PLAY
London: Abandoning the sweet silhouettes and delicate details of last spring, Erdem Moralioglu took his F/W 11 collection for a walk on the wild side this season. Moralioglu imagined an artist’s wife who tore apart her husband’s paintings in a fit of rage, and then dressed herself in clothes made from the scraps. The painterly prints for which Erdem is known remained a central focus, but this time they decorated seductive body-con silhouettes. Diverse motifs and textures were uninhibitedly collaged – brocades, velvets and tweeds were pieced together, and lace overlays created crosshatched texture patterns. The palette was also more intense this time around; electric blues, purples, oranges and pinks were grounded by black.
