Timeless Beauty

The latest Resort collections for 2012 are out and one of my very favourites (as he almost always is in any season) was the presentation from Erdem. It was full of classic, beautiful pieces that would be at home in any woman's closet, old or young. There is consistently a timeless quality to the work of Mr. Moralioglu, in addition to his beautiful prints that I always love.

I also loved how the lookbook itself told a story, or at least hinted at one. I found myself wondering what  model Guinevere Van Seenus was thinking as she looked over her shoulder.

According to the lucky folks at Style.com who got to see the mood board that served as inspiration for this collection (to be a fly on that wall!), a few classic silver-screen sirens were Moralioglu's muses for his Resort presentation - Tippi Hedron, Eva Marie Saint and Romy Schneider, most notably. As I looked through photos of these three ladies, I could certainly see the appeal - each has such classic beauty and fantastically inspiring style.

Erdem was going for "eerily composed" in these looks - and there certainly a feeling of mystery and allure in the garments themselves as well as the impeccably shot lookbook, and it's the kind of feeling that any woman, old or young, could definitely appreciate.  This is definitely one of my frontrunners for favourites in the Resort collections so far, second only perhaps to Oscar with his paper hats.

The Erdem resort collection is gorgeous, I also wonder what she's thinking when she looks over her shoulder. Maybe about what a sweet job she as or how beautiful her dress is ;)

Erdem has definitely been super swoon worthy lately!
I've been kind of disappointed with the state of the resort collections so far but I did really like this collection!
