Drawing inspiration from Bonjour Tristesse, a bittersweet tragedy set in the French Rivieria, and Wong Kar Wai’s In the Mood For Love, a dramatic love story set in Hong Kong, Erdem Moralioglu certainly set the mood this season with a collection of cool toned floral prints, sheer lace overlays, and classically elegant silhouettes. Add une chapeau and a pair of lace gloves and voila, the Erdem girl is ready for a season of weddings, showers, garden parties . . . and romance, of course.
