Pre-Fall 2017 Influencer Show: Erdem

An underlying 40s influence has subtly begun shaping fashion trends over the past few seasons, and Erdem’s latest Pre-Fall showing tapped into that same vintage vibe, mashing 40s and 70s influences together in one harmonious look.

It’s a trend we saw colouring Bottega Veneta’s Pre-Fall showing too, as we see designers tapping into the slowly emerging mood for a more dressed-up, glamorous approach to fashion after seasons of downplayed athleisure looks.  

Think fluffy, chubby jackets, decorative blousons, sleek mid-calf pencil skirts tethered with waist-defining satin ribbon belts and flirty waisted dresses with a retro slant. Everything is played out in the undeniably feminine palettes of dusky rose pink, washed cerulean blue, mossy greens, burgundy and black.

Fabrics too had a vintage sensibility, with wafting marabou, shimmery satins, silks and sequins, crisp brocades and dense lace all adding to that dressed-up feel.

There were plenty of design details playing into the newly emerging feminine look, with bias ruffles, languidly undulating hanky hems and whooshing hi-lo hemlines on statement brocade gowns.

Erdem’s signature florals and botanical prints were out in force, looking new as bicoloured silhouette prints or placement motifs on all-over sequins. Meanwhile, simple checks and stripes added a more straightforward, utilitarian feel.

Chunky printed flat-form sandals, flat velvet mules and intensely patterned hosiery completed this masterclass in feminine retro-inspired dressing.
