Erdem Fall 2014 Takes the Little Black Dress to New Heights

Erdem Moralioğlu is known for elevating clothing from normal to extraordinary. In September for Spring 2014, he injected couture into school uniforms for a high-end athletic look, and now he has taken the little black dress to new levels of sophistication.

Here, the LBD soars with touches of velvet, lace, and beadwork. The collection is not without a nod to the current trends (Erdem's smells like teen spirit chokers and messy middle part hair fit perfectly into the grunge moment we are having right now), but its timelessness is what's making it one of the most standout collections of London Fashion Week.
