Laura Knight’s paintings were all over the designer’s mood board as the Erdem Pre-Fall 2019 collection featured touches of art.
Documentary photographs, fashion illustrations, and memorabilia leading up to the Second World War as the primary source of inspiration.“I was thinking about her more in the ’40s, really,” the designer said.
The collection featured padded shoulders, belted waists, and floral dresses, as well as the quirky turbans he commissioned from his longtime millinery collaborator Noel Stewart, with whom he became friends when they were students at The Royal College of Art. Mercurial sequin poured on white lace, floaty high-waisted print dresses, quirky rose-printed tights.
