ERDEM

Flowers and swallows, lace and chiffon: Soft femininity and romance were the order of the day at Erdem.

Erdem Moralioglu, the Canadian-born designer now based in London, displayed a collection of dreamy floral prints in soothing pastels, lacy dresses and flowing pleated skirts.

Working from a palette of butter, cornflower and creams, Erdem showed off the feminine form with features that hint at a bygone era: delicate short gloves in lace or floral prints that matched the wearer’s dress, off-the-shoulder necklines, sheer lacy three-quarter sleeves.

Other pieces, like the high-waisted hot pants, retained the florals but kept the look modern and sexy.
