May 10, 2009 New York
After embracing his inner Christian Lacroix on the runway in February, Erdem Moralioglu focused on ease for his charming Resort collection. There were zip-up-and-go cocktail dresses with neat ballet necklines, an evening gown that slips over the head like a T-shirt with a blouson in back, and print tops that he called "sloppy" (they looked pretty smart to us). "I was thinking about what I've done that I love," the designer said of his approach to the season. That means his abstracted florals and embroideries are back, but intriguingly filtered through a sort of Japonisme that hints at his upcoming travel schedule: He's going on holiday to Tokyo and Kyoto.
