Erdem Moralioglu showed his spring collection at the Savoy Hotel, in a ballroom that was painted a soft, barely-there baby blue–a color motif that seemed to inspire a huge portion of the show.
The clothes were covered in muted floral wallpaper prints–a far cry from the bold blooms we saw during NYFW–or bathed in solid pastel shades. It was a far quieter print than we’ve seen from the designer (who has been deemed “The Master of Floral“) in past collections. But don’t let the sedated color palette fool you: This was not a collection for wallflowers.
While the dresses seemed conservative at first glance, they belied a certain sexiness: Off the shoulder here, a bit of a cleavage there. Even high-waisted short shorts made an appearance. Filmy delicate lace pieces were offset by crisp tailored white shirts and printed skinny pants.
Modern princesses (ahem, Kate Middleton) could find a lot to love here–no Cinderella gown required.
