A Vintage Romanticism - Erdem Pre-Fall 2018 Collection The designer Erdem Moralioglu got his pre-fall 2018 inspiration from the Japanese artist Katsushika Hokusai and Laura Ashley catalogues. The collection features silhouettes, patchwork patterns, kimono-style sashes, romantic ruffles and vibrant prints that infuse the collection with femininity. Simultaneously, all of the retro romance was perfectly balanced with well-cut and floral printed suits. Ashley's influence comes in obviously such as in the high-waisted bodices and the patchworks. While the tiny flower prints and the kimono sashes speak to the Japanese influence. The lookbook was captured at the ideal location - Kyoto Garden in Holland Park in London by photographer Robi Rodriguez, with models Kiko Arai, Michelle Gutknecht, and Runa Neuwirth.
