Erdem manages to use the elements that are typically associated with feminine dressing – lace, florals, silk, chiffon – and transform them into romantic-yet-confident silhouettes. There is nothing sugary-sweet about his beautiful craftsmanship and designs. Women want to look beautiful, and Erdem makes it easy. Everyone from Anna Wintour to Michelle Obama agrees.
I went to a showroom to see his SS11 collection up close and personal. I adore the painterly prints (this is one of the skirts)…
…and I simply fell in love with these Nicholas Kirkwood for Erdem shoes.
