Resort 2015 - Erdem
Erdem Maoralioglu searched for the Resort Collection for "codes of femininity" and found them in elements he has used in the past over and over again: the polka dot, the ruffle, the flower. Time to mess a bit around and give them a twist. Inspired by the photographs of Alex Prager and Vivian Maier, with their sense of interrupted narrative, the outcome was interesting with a certain kind of roughness which created an attractive contrast. The polka dots transformed into more organic smears; the delicate organza florals seemed to have gotten a thick outline which reminded of Magic Markers and the unlined, almost raggedy tweed coat turned inside out.
