A Look at Resort 2011: Erdem

Erdem has a feeling for Fortuny pleating and for flower prints—turquoise, teal, and dabs of pink, “sort of messed up with static electricity on my computer.” That makes for an emblematically romantic high-collared halter-neck dress with a hint of the seventies about it, a very Erdem-ish look he’s thinking of carrying over into spring.

But this is resort: a collection in which the first recipient of the British Fashion Council/Vogue Designer Fashion Fund award—a designer who’s already proved himself a quick study in the art of charming American customers—has really got down to business.

“I think this season’s a logical proposal—clothes to wear any time of day, any time of year.”

Not that his version of pragmatic sportswear is exactly career-oriented (his shirts are in crunchy black cotton lace, for instance), but there are more daytime separates, like flower-printed silk knits and bell-shaped skirts, popping up—and a short plissé skirt in the Fortuny spirit.
