Perhaps it’s holiday party season and the sequined pencil skirts and dresses are wooing me in the right way. Or perhaps I’ve just finished watching the finale of Westworld and all the high collars and ladylike ruffles are giving me that slight Victorian, American West vibe that’s still loitering in my mind. What is certain, however, is that Erdem‘s pre-fall collection is beyond exquisite. But then again, when is it ever not? I love that even though Erdem Moralioglu draws heavily from romantic eras in history, his clothes still feel modern. I mean, what girl wouldn’t want to wear a pink brocade dress with a billowing, uneven hem and jeweled straps? Whether you can afford his clothes or not, at least you can walk away feeling inspired to incorporate floral tights, layer ruffled turtlenecks, bejewel silk pointed toe flats and tie thick silk ribbon to just about everything.
