My love of Erdem

Those of you who have been reading this blog for some time will know quite how much i admire Mr Erdem Moralioglu.  

My love affair with Erdem began with a sales purchase Fall 2008 - a simple but not at all simple 
silk top.  I never looked back - every season i buy something from Erdem, sometimes a scarf and sometimes a piece of full blown maxi knockout fabulousness.  

I often wait for the sales for the more knockout pieces but i always invest because i love his pieces 
so very much.  He is a creator, a Painter and above all an artist. This is a talent i know i do not possess, but a curator, oh a curator this i am - and to be a curator for Erdem over my lifetime - will indeed be one of my never little life's pleasures.

Herewith my favourites from the Spring/Summer Collection - the task was not how to pick them 
but how not to pick them all.  I will be running another Erdem outfit post on Monday and then my 
favourites  from the Resort collection too.  Have a very good weekend. xx


I adore this the little hat, the blue and then the shoes, the length, the little collar - shall i go on ..


Beautiful - maybe not quintessentially the king of print but quintessentially elegant, feminine and easy with the perfect button down which makes this so very perfect 


Lace, Print - how can you go wrong especially with those sunnies - i love the red lips too


Double print and a pleat - again fashion arithmetics the erdem way - definitely my kind of plus


Stunning - loving the lemon - the colour for next summer it would appear


Easy i love the way erdem does a pant so very wearable and yet very standout


Pretty, pretty, pretty


Gorgeous, love the silhouette topped with the perfect topper


Nude with a twist of lilac - sublime


And finally a trench - a perfect trench - will it be a dress, will it be a coat? Either way it will definitely be very, very special and this is exactly how you will feel should you be lucky enough to own this piece x

  3. Oh Claire, Can i ask your advice on these shoes, I can't make up my mind, I love them but I'm not sure if they've been too overexposed, would I still be wearing them in two years time or will they be over by next year?
    Help!

  4. Tabitha i told you twinned - i have so been thinking about these myself - i love them - the nude upper will be leg flattering - the height is perfect and walkable - huge plus - are they overexposed or a perenial classic?? I bought the manolo - urban myth - about 8 years ago - wore to death and then felt them overexposed - they have re-issued and i am looking at them with renewed eyes which i find always happens - they have that edge which is fabulous and pretty is very much on the cards for a while now and with pretty we often call for an edge. They are also a twist on the classic which again enlivens more classic items - i am still umming and aahing but am up in london end next week for my October Autumn shop and Valentino is on my list of places to go and deliberate on exactly these shoes - it is so hard when you are looking at a price tag that even just a bit less would make it that bit easier to decide - one thing i do know is they will suit you - if you havent already decided i will def be happy to share my valentino thoughts with you after next week xx

  13. These prints are so feminine...I can see them on the french Riviera and in Rome. They seem to have a vintage vibe that is classic.
    I can see you in one with your sunglasses an a big hat, Tres chic!
