ERDEM CRUISE 2016
The raw wilderness faced by late 19th century European emigrants as they pushed into the great and vast plains of America’s west led to what is known as “Prairie Madness.”
In this context of fragile retro nostalgia Erdem Moralioglu’s sets his stunning spring 2016 show, pervaded by a pretty and romantic spirit that blows a soothing calmness in a moment of general tension. Erdem’s evocative silhouettes are finely decorated with labor-intensive embellishments. Flowers, stripes and broderie anglaise spill over long dresses, enriched with pouf sleeves, tiers and ruffles. A quiet and exquisite Little House in the Prairie feel in an era of too-much, too-fast.
