Pandora loves this... because this is a romanticized vision of Charlotte Bronte meets avant-garde fashion. An eclectic collision of two of London's greats sees the delicate decay of Erdem meet the brash opulence of Burberry flares in metallic purple.
Erdem's creation from the SS11 collection was born out of time spent immersed in the Victoria & Albert Museum's Diaghilev and the Golden Age of the Ballets Russes, 1909-1929 exhibition. As if handling garments worn by Nijinsky himself wasn't inspiration enough Moralioglu's collection took its delicate and serene white influences from the calico that was preserving the costumes. The austerity of the buttoned up blouse and James Lock & Co hat is relaxed by cut outs that look as if time has been pressing on the garment, eroding it away. But before being caught up in thoughts of poetry in purple fields the lavish pre-fall Burberry flares (a trouser shape that Christopher Bailey championed before most designers) brings a luxurious flamboyance to the look.
