Erdem Moralioglu’s sense of craftsmanship shone in this beautifully executed Erdem collection. The designer gave rich Baroque fabrics and embellishments — guipure lace, velvet, chinoiserie satin, black crystals, metallic jacquards — a youthful vibe by working them on sweet silhouettes. A black guipure lace blouson jacket was paired with a miniskirt, while a black A-line cocktail dress with sheer black tulle sleeves was patched with jacquards and embroidered with jewel-toned flowers, their silk threads pulled loose for an undone look.

While Moralioglu didn’t veer far from the easy cocktail shapes that he’s known for, his lack of preciousness gave these feminine designs an edge.
