Erdem #RTW Spring 2015 #LFW

"On Erdem Moralioglu's mood board, there were pictures of Katharine Hepburn in The African Queen, a proper woman 'going bush,' unhinged by the jungle. That was the set today: steamy, dark, slightly sinister. And that was also the scenario. Except that the woman Erdem had in mind was Victorian biologist and botanical artist Marianne North, who traveled the world and defined her profession to the point where there is a gallery dedicated to her at the Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, outside London. But Erdem compared that to 'trapping something wild.' A clutch of raw-edged tweeds was one way to express incipient chaos. Another was the steady encroachment of feathers and fronds - dense, overlaid, obsessively applied by hand. The effect was lavish, but eerie. Like fashion voodoo. With Erdem as high priest." -
