A designer continually inspired by history Erdem Mor alioglu taps the graceful femininity of the 1940s for Pre-AW17. This off-white silk-voile Alison skirt is printed with ditsy florals and cut to fall with frothy ruffles into a floor-sweeping train. Tuck in a white cotton shirt and finish with satin accessories to enhance the old-world glamour.
Erdem's dusty-blue silk-chiffon Alison maxi skirt is a beautiful showcase of the Pre-AW17 collection's nostalgic Paisley Vine print. Inspired by the glamour of the 1940s it falls in ruffle-trimmed tiers into an asymmetric hem that pools beautifully around the feet. Complement it with a cold-shoulder blouse for a sophisticated take on vintage romanticism.
Erdem looks to the sanguine glamour of the 1940s for Pre-AW17 creating ornate pieces like this black and cornflower-blue Amanda skirt. It's crafted in the UK from a swirling floral jacquard and flares from the black grosgrain waistband into a voluminous tiered silhouette that pools softly on the floor. Team it with the matching top adding a bright-red lip to play up the old-world allure.
