TALK | Designer Collaboration: Erdem x H&M

To my dearest:

Did that video sweep you off your feet or what? It’s like I’m taken to some magical garden of Eden or something! Yes! I’m back today to talk about the latest designer collaboration I’ve been swooning over – Erdem x H&M. It’s release date is November 2nd and I can not sit still waiting! I’ve been eyeing this collaboration ever since the news came out and was looking all over for the full look book for a while. Thankfully, the look book finally came out last week! And boy, am I psyched! I haven’t been this excited over a something like this for a while!

If you know H&M, they do at least one designer collaboration per year. The pattern first started in 2004 with Karl Lagerfeld. Other notable collaborations to name a few, were with Jimmy Choo (2009), Lanvin (2010), Versace (2011), Marni (2012), Isabel Marant (2013), Alexander Wang (2014) and Balmain (2015). I’ve always been interested in these collaborations because I value each designer’s aesthetic and ideas and love being able to purchase a piece at an affordable price. Usually, pieces don’t go for more than $200 and maybe $300 tops.

Let’s look at Erdem, shall we? If you have never heard of Erdem, I’m not surprised. It’s not relatively popular in the United States, but I’m sure once you’ve seen the designs, you’ll fall in love. If you didn’t know – Erdem is a label by Erdem Moralioglu, a Canadian Turkish fashion designer.

Erdem’s forte is definitely in his usage of prints and patterns. He’s especially gifted in creating beautiful floral prints. This collaboration came at the perfect time this Fall, because the trend this season is florals in F/W 2017. I can’t imagine how beautiful these statement pieces will be when they’re added to my wardrobe!

Let’s take a glimpse at their look book!

The pieces are all very detailed and all the prints are spectacular. The vibes are overall a bit gothic and victorian style, but it contains modern designs! I love the little modern cut-out on one of the dresses and just the little ribbon detailing all over the place. This is also the first time Erdem released men’s fashion!

The collection is definitely making my anticipation go wild. I love each and every piece and wish I could just own the whole collection! Be still my heart! I can only pick and choose pieces, but their collection is so abundant and besides clothing, I’m in love with the accessories, shoes, and handbag as well! It seems my wallet will be bleeding! Just look at all the accent detailing on these pieces!

It may be tough to get everything, because the fight for these limited edition collaborations are always fierce! So I’ll pick and choose whatever I can get. Below, I’ve compiled a few of the clothing pieces that are calling my heart.

These are my TOP 5 choices of apparel so far that I can’t take my eyes off of. It’s true, most of these pieces are not classics, but rather statements. However, I believe I have space in my wardrobe to store these pieces of art work. In my eyes, they’re true art pieces. I adore each and every one of them.

How about you? What do you think of this latest designer collaboration? Are you for the prints and designs? Write back and let me know!

    I’m not usually drawn to floral prints but I actually really like these. It is the perfect balance between under/overstated. Cant wait to see more!

    I would really love to see this style become popular. It has such a wonderful Gothic touch.

    I think the latest designer collaboration is pretty interesting. I’ve always been a fan of prints and love the pieces.

    Some of those pieces of jewellery are very pretty. I would like to see some of those dresses on a woman with some curves. Just to see what it would look like on a regular size lady.

    For some reason I’ve never heard of Erdem but from what I see here they have pretty pieces. I’ll have to check them out

    I like the collection, honestly a lot! I’m not rally sure if I’ll go ahead to buy them tho. I noticed that these collaborations between brands and H&M take a lot of hype untile the launch of the collection, then a week later no one is interested anymore and even the items look incredibly old and dated. But still, this collection is beautiful, and totally my style! xx

    Everything is really on point!! Beautiful collection

  19. October 22, 2017 / 11:27 AM

    They definitely have some cool modest pieces with some interesting lace designs. I’ll have to show these to my daughter and see what she thinks.

    Thanks for educating us on Erdem, I’ve heard the name but knew nothing about it. Is it often that you can only get pieces from these H&M collabs if you stand in line the day of the launch?

    I’m not necessarily a fashion fan, nor do I follow the trends. But, I do find it interesting when different fashion styles or periods start to fuse.

    I love when H&M does this high fashion brand collaborations. This Erdem x H&M collection is proving florals aren’t going anywhere this fall.

    Oh I love these looks. My favorite has to be the black with white flowers dress and scarf. I will have to look for them in my size.
