With much delight – the Erdem Pre-Fall 2011 delivery has arrived!
Erdem Moralioglu, the young London designer and dresser of wives of Prime ministers, Presidents and celebrities, has yet again produced another amazing collection for this seasons Pre-Fall. The designer describes where he gathered his inspiration from to create the line, “The prints I developed were from fireworks, a kind of Fifties wallpaper pattern, and a weird picture of a garden I took on my Blackberry.” He also states “I was thinking more about a women this time. And length.”
The colours are darker than previous collections we’ve had in store, adding an air of mystery and hopefully an insight of what’s yet to come from Erdem’s Autumn/Winter collection!
For those who love a longer length and a sleeve, we can confidently say this collection is for you!

I bought a pair of white, M.i.H Paris Jeans. I am completely in love with them but I was struggling with what to wear them with.
What do you wear with white?
After a read through some magazines, I quickly found that the best thing to wear with white this season is white.
To save you the trouble of trolling the high street, we have put together 5 brilliant white looks to wear in the summer months.
Look Number One – Classic
This is a perfect day to night outfit. It is classic so could take you anywhere; we have paired a Red Valentino tee and high waisted Pringle of Scotland trousers. Just be careful with the red wine next to this look!
Look Number Two – Fashion
Are you feeling brave? The silhouette of this outfit might look a bit scary but when you wear it you will feel fantastic. The skinny, M.i.H Paris jeans are perfect for this Pringle of Scotland over-sized shirt.
Look Number Three – Work
The white on white trend could easily take you to work as well. Here we have paired our DvF Plateau B dress and our DvF Geo jacket. All you would need to add to it is your briefcase and you’re ready to brighten up the office.
Look Number Four – Casual
This seasons trend can also be worn if you’re just heading out to the shops or picking the kids up from school. Just throw on our M.i.H Paris, a comfy Susana Monaco tee and a pair of flip flops. This look would also look great with a straw hat on a sunny day!
Look Number Five – Holiday
Are you heading to the beach this summer? Don’t forget to pack our M Missoni jumpsuit! Now unlike our mannequin this jumpsuit should be worn with a subtle tan and not many accessories.
So there are 5 easy ways to achieve this season’s hottest trend without looking like you stepped out of a ‘Daz’ advert!

The Red Carpet expectations were understandably high with the Met Gala considered the biggest event of the fashion calendar by all who attend. This year was no exception; the red carpet was alive with British designers, from McQueen to Stella McCartney, with Topshop even making a surprise appearance. Designers such as Chanel, Givenchy and Vera Wang weren’t to be out done by us Brits, making very strong fashion statements of their own, being worn by some of the most glamorous and beautiful women in the world.
Let us take you on a red carpet tour of the 2011 Met Gala Ball, to showcase, in our opinion, the finest and most awfully dressed attendees...
The Best of the Best:-
5. Diane Kruger – Jason Wu
The 34-year-old wore a very sexy number by Taiwanese designer, Jason Wu. Diane played by all the fashion rules; chic embellished top with a long skirt with an even longer slit – just showing the right amount of flesh! The fashion jury is out, and we love it! We can’t help but notice how similar this outfit is to our very own Bebaroque dress!
4. Eva Mendes – Stella McCartney
Miss Mendes oozed elegance as she graced the red carpet in this royal blue, pleated Grecian number by Stella McCartney. Eva may have played it safe, but it certainly payed off. Kudos to you!
3. Gisele Bundchen – Alexander McQueen
Supermodel Gisele Bundchen, looked amazing, naturally, in this scarlet McQueen number from the 2005 Autumn collection. We can’t find one fault with this dress, it’s effortlessly stunning! The Brazilian model explained what an honour it was wearing an Alexander McQueen Dress, “When I was 17, McQueen gave me my first big break by booking me for his fashion show. Doing his show opened many doors for my career. I’m excited to be wearing one of his designs to honour him”.
2. Blake Lively – Chanel Couture
Blake Lively was the definition of glamour and beauty all rolled into one. Not only did the Gossip Girl actress and the face of Chanel get to walk the red carpet with the one and only Karl Lagerfeld, but she got to do it wearing Chanel Couture! Jealous! The mix of Grecian folds and body-con embellishments make this a winning combination and a well deserved number two spot on our best dressed chart!
And the Number One spot goes to....
1.Sarah Jessica Parker – Alexander McQueen
...of course it did! Who else but the man of the hour could be more deserving of this honour! SJP glistened in this Alexander McQueen sparkly gown and was one of the rare few who got to wear an archive look from McQueen’s autumn 2005 collection. What a lucky lady!
The Worst of the Worst
By far, no contest Naomi Campbell was the worst dressed woman on the Met Gala red carpet wearing, unfortunately - McQueen. Just because it’s good enough for Kate The Duchess of Cambridge, does not mean it’s appropriate to don a white bridal gown down the red carpet. Everything about Naomi’s look screams: WRONG! Hopefully this supermodel can redeem herself next year and make it on to our Best Dressed list!
