Erdem’s Spring ’13 collection, which highlights a flurry of beautiful textures and piecing techniques, is truly a breath of fresh air. Upon first glance I was a little disappointed in the use of snakeskin, which seems a bit dated. As I continued through the collection and took in the other elements: the lace, flowers, embroidery, piecing and light as air organzas, I realized that the snakeskin added a rawness to the collection and along with the “extraterrestrial” styled piecing, gave the collection contrast and took the “sweetness” level down a notch. This is another fantastic collection from the team of Erdem and I encourage you to view the entire collection here. What are your favorite looks?
