Erdem Mid Length Skirts
Erdem's 'Elena' midi skirt is cut from crisp cotton-poplin printed with Cuban-inspired tropical birds and monochrome foliage. It sits at the waist and is box pleated for soft volume. This piece is partially lined to ensure coverage and has discreet slit pockets.
Pinned to Erdem Moralioglu's walls are works by surrealist painter Leonora Carrington, abstract collages by Hannah Höch and pictures of Japanese screens and textiles. Beautifully drawing on this eclectic mix of references, this 'Gael' skirt is cut from smooth duchesse-satin and embroidered with dainty blooms in yellow, blue and white. It's darted for a close fit through the waist before flaring to a full midi hem.
The floral bouquets on Erdem's 'Nesrine' midi skirt are inspired by Paloma Picasso's vintage clothing and outfits from Bertolucci's film The Conformist. It's cut from crepe de chine that's pressed with sharp pleats for fluid movement. Wear this piece as the designer intended - with the coordinating blouse.
Part of Erdem's '40s-inspired Pre-Fall '17 collection, this 'Tiana' skirt sits high on the waist and flares out into full soft folds. It's cut from matelassé that is lighter than you might expect, and is printed with flowers that have a hand-painted quality. This piece is also lined with supple organza for structure so it will always look as the designer intended.
Drawing inspiration from the swirling Indian heritage pattern, this cotton poplin Elena midi skirt from Erdem feels fresh and modern thanks to the inclusion of vibrant birds of paradise. Sitting neatly at the high rise waistband, this figure flattering style flares out into a full bodied silhouette with soft pleats for extra volume. The Paisley Parrot print also pays homage to the label’s new season Cuban influences and partner’s best with colour pop flats.Erdem cotton poplin midi skirtConcealed zip fastening at backHigh rise, flared, all over pleated, two slip pockets at sides, all over parrot pattern100% cottonMachine washTrue to sizeSize 8: Length 35”Model is 5ft 10” and wears a size 8

Curiosity about Elizabeth II is at an all time high with fashion. Erdem Moralioglu created his own tangent and studied the life of our reigning monarch while making connections to Black America during the 1950s. Combined with the painterly floral motifs signature of his aesthetic, the Tiani skirt is resplendent with references to the cotton clubs of Harlem, while still maintaining prim and proper ties with its swing midi tea length.

Erdem Moralioglu’s love letter of the season this time was addressed to Queen Elizabeth II, who after extensive research in the archives of Windsor Castle, turned out to be a rich source of stylistic inspiration.

Gathered at the seams with ruffles running around the flared hem, it cinches high and nipped over the waist.

Erdem's crepe 'Sacha' skirt is lavishly decorated with scores of high-shine sequins and tropical bird embroidery that pays homage to the "exoticism and exuberance" of Havana.
