“I was thinking of boyishness — there’s a relaxed masculinity to it,” said Erdem Moralioglu of his resort collection, which saw the designer punctuate his feminine designs with a clutch of clean, androgynous silhouettes. Among them was a round-shouldered, navy crepe coat inset with bonded Neoprene panels in a moody floral print. And on a sharp navy tuxedo suit, a botanical design — inspired by an 18th-Century interiors fabric that Moralioglu found in the Victoria and Albert Museum archive — was used on the waistband and jacket’s hemline.
Chiming in on that boy-meets-girl idea, Moralioglu’s gowns had a sleek, pared-back feel. A lemon-yellow silk and cotton brocade gown, for one, was done with a tank-style top and deep V-neck.
