Designer: erdem moraliogluinspiration: a rendezvous at the national portrait gallery in the heart of london where the british designer takes us through different rooms of the museum, along a silver aluminium-type path, making reference to cecil beaton’s exhibition on a specific period, from the 1920s to the 1940s. he worked closely with the curator of this exhibition, robin muir, to better understand the first photographs of the artist.collection: frivolous experimentation and daring modernity are found in this new wardrobe with black and white checks that mix with pieces embroidered with pearls. the coats are worn in a loose way and the puffa jackets are decorated with flowers. the distinctions between men and women are less visible. the blouses with balloon sleeves are belted and the cardigans are worn casually. the luxurious materials and posture recall the modern spirit that emanates from this new elegant wardrobe.to note: the many accessories such as the jewelled headbands, long silver gloves and the jewellery+ the retro hair waves. interview with erdem moralioglu:for me i was so excited to have this show here because i knew there was the exhibit of cecil beaton coming up so i worked very closely with the curator, robin muir, and it was wonderful because it’s about a very specific time of cecil beaton’s career between the 1920s and the 1930s, he was very rebellious and he played and he experimented with textiles and looking at these wonderful images that we found in the archive of the silver and the plastic and these graphics was so inspiring.and the tension between something that’s very graphic and something that’s very organic and feminine, something that’s masculine with something feminine, i’ve always been very attracted to contrast. i liked the idea of having something quite silly, to contrast with something that was quite, i don’t know, i think that it felt important to have like a playfulness to the collection. music from the show (to use only in context of the show, under cover of the right to information)
