Pre Fall 2023 Collection

Pre Fall 2023 Collection

Discover ERDEM’s Pre Fall 2023 Collection, inspired by a period in the second half of the 19th century when the dawning impact of industrialisation was on the horizon. This was an equally fertile era for sartorial experimentation, and Erdem plays with various codes of Victoriana throughout the collection.

Society meets utility. Handwork meets machine technology. Eveningwear is combined with daywear. The structure of undergarments are visible as dresses and outerwear.

Tailoring and Textiles

High-neck, puff-sleeves dresses in Broderie Anglaise bring the language of undergarments into the open. A tulle skirt conceals an embroidered silk dress adding a layer of propriety. Pleated Victorian bibs beaded in black jet are glamorous and haughty simultaneously. Corsetry and boning are played with in various forms, in places tightened, in others undone, alluding to the shifting social status of women in this era.

Such expressions combine to bring an optimistic energy to the collection. This era of change would herald great advances across society and life that would usher in the modern era. An atmosphere that has been captured by photographer Nadine Ijewere, working for the first time with Erdem.
