Tucking into a homemade Chocolate & Vanilla cupcake while browsing through the latest Erdem collection is fairly sweet!
Following on from the crisp and bright floral Spring Summer collection Erdem Moralioglu brings something a little darker. Floral prints were laid over beige, yellow and dirty orange fabric (replacing the crisp white in the s/s collection) and teamed with black lace applique detail.
The whole colour palette was very '1950's housewife', which was echoed in the hourglass silhouettes of the clothing, but teamed with polo necks and sharp collars Erdem Moralioglu created something very modern.

This morning as I opened my new February issue of Vogue I actually made a noise somewhere between a gasp and an 'ooh'. I was looking at the bright smiling face of Arizona Muse; looking like sje'd stepped out of a fifties seaside pin up photograph, wearing a very sweet Prada broderie anglaise top and pleated skirt with bright cherry lips and matching earrings.
Arizona Muse on a set designed by Stefan Beckman inspired by vintage photographs from the fifties and sixties - that is my idea of perfection.
