The floral patterns of the Erdem Autumn/Winter 2014-2015 Show, which was influenced by Diego Velázquez’s paintings of the « extraordinary infantas », were based on William Kilburn’s botanical illustrations.

To read about other Diego Velázquez-inspired collections, search for the « Diego Velázquez » post that I have published on July 12, 2013.

Blur

Erdem SS14

The starting point of the androgyny which was highlighted in the Erdem Spring/Summer 2014 Show was taken from Blur’s « Girls & Boys » lyrics.

Furthermore, Blur’s « Girls & Boys » was one of the Brit Pop tracks that featured on the soundtrack of the Moschino Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Show, which paid homage to Great Britain.

Old photographs of Erdem Moralioglu’s mother in holiday in Blackpool influenced the Erdem Resort 2014 Collection.

Another Blackpool-inspired collection : Mulberry Spring/Summer 2012 (Emma Hill drew inspiration from Blackpool’s neon-festooned lights for this show).

Persona

The dichotomy which was expressed in Ingmar Bergman’s « Persona » (« something soft mixed with something quite dark », according to Erdem Moralioglu) was the starting point of the Erdem Autumn/Winter 2013-2014 Show.

Other « Persona »-inspired collections : Apiece Apart Spring/Summer 2010 (the short film which was shot to accompany this collection was partly based on the exchanging of identities in « Persona »), Dsquared² Spring/Summer 2013 (the video campaign of this collection, shot by Mert & Marcus, was an homage to such films as « Persona »), Mandy Coon (in 2011, « Persona » was the 1st film of the « Fashion in Film – Designer Inspiration » movie night series, organized by Mandy Coon), SportMax Autumn/Winter 2011-2012 (not specifically inspired by « Persona » but by the cold Northern Europe which was portrayed in Ingmar Bergman’s films).
