I have a soft spot for Erdem. His Fall 2011 Ready-To-Wear collection is an example of fashion as art. As Tim Blanks explains, "The dark palette and impressionistic prints (also) suggested Monet's Water Lilies by moonlight." My favourite outfit was the blouse with pink and red flowers cascading into hints of blues and greens over a gold pencil skirt (image no.7). I also liked the concept of throwing a knitted sweater over a delicate floral skirt... simple yet effective. x.
