Clever Couture: Erdem from catwalk to high street
From pyjama to palazzo, capri to cigarette, printed trousers are an essential wardrobe staple this summer. Whether you opt for a slinky silk pair with foulard print as seen at Stella McCartney or go for Jil Sander's oversized gingham in powder blue, you need to work the look. Where better to get inspiration than from the catwalk?
London-based Erdem excels at floral prints. Digital blossoms have graced their runway in some shape or form ever since their debut collection in 2008. This print-on-print look is bold and beautiful. The crisp tailoring is balanced with an oh-so-pretty print, while kitten heels and a red lip add an elegant edge.
Oasis has a superb selection of printed trousers to choose from, while this shirt from Warehouse with its trailing placement print on the sleeves, collar and button covering is a great high-street alternative.
