When new Erdem was delivered  to our headquarters  all of us sitting in an office automatically stopped doing our own thing and just starred at new arrivals. And it wasn`t a short  moment, probably we prolonged our lunch break twice. Why the level of our excitement was so high? The secret lays in the fact that this time it wasn`t just a new piece of garment that we received, it was a piece of art.

 

Erdem的衣服送抵到我们总部办公室的时候,我们都无法将眼睛挪开这些大师级的杰作,大家都停下了自己手头的工作,谈论着它们是多么地有创作感。感叹印花面料的运用给简单的剪裁带来了独特的魅力,我们必须要承认,Erdem的到来仿佛是第2个午餐休息。到底有什么很特别的原因让我们如此的兴奋呢?原因在于我们不仅收到了一件高质地的服装,而更多地,是一件卓越的艺术品。

 

 

Erdem Moralioglu is the man who created this masterpiece. He was raised in Montreal by his Turkish father and English mother, and studied fashion in both Canada and England. He received his master's degree from the Royal College of Art, London, in 2003, and worked for Diane von Furstenberg, in New York, before returning to London to launch his own label in 2005. Shortly after that he has won many accolades for his designs, including the British Fashion Council/Vogue’s first Fashion Fund Award in 2010.

 

Erdem Moralioglu,这个能创造大师级设计的天才。他是在蒙特利尔长大,父亲是土耳其人和一个来自英国的母亲。2003年,他在伦敦皇家艺术学院得到了他的硕士学位,在2005年他回到伦敦建立他自己的品牌之前,他在纽约为Diane Von Furstenberg工作。品牌建立后不久,他便赢得了很多设计的奖项,包括2010年英国时尚协会/ Vogue第一时尚基金奖。

 

But let`s focus on his designs. What makes Erdem so special and why his fan`s crown includes both “first class ladies” and red carpet celebrities such as Keira Knightley, Sienna Miller, Ashley Olsen, Chloe Sevigny, Thandie Newton, Kirsten Dunst, Claudia Schiffer, and Anna Friel ?

 

现在让我们把目光锁定在他的设计上。 是什么让Erdem如此的特别?是什么让他的追随者是“第一夫人”以及红毯明星包括Keira KnightlySienna MillerAshley Olsen Chloe SevignyThandie NewtonKirsten DunstClaudia Schifferand Anna Friel?

 

 

For me, what makes him one of my favorite designer  is mix of bold and unusual colour combinations, curvaceous tailoring and amazing prints, spiced with a whimsical revival of embroidery, and flattering details. It always works because who do not love grown-up clothes ,which look pretty, without being over-sweet?

 

对我来说,他作为一个我最喜欢的设计师主要表现在大胆的创意以及不寻常的色彩混搭,有曲线的缝制以及惊艳的印花,一个具有搞怪的刺绣品,和令人陶醉的细节。谁会不爱成熟一点的服装,不仅看起来漂亮而不会觉得过分甜美。

 

 

 

 

There are two words, in which you can describe his Autumn/Winter 2011 Collection: romance and fantasy. Both wreathed by a gloomy shadow, tempting and dangerous.

 

 你可以用2个词来形容2011 秋冬系列:浪漫,迷幻。Erdem 像被笼罩在阴影中,挑逗并且暗藏危险。

 

 

 As designer declares the collection was inspired by “a slightly unhinged artist’s wife”. “I’d seen the movie ‘Pollock’ – says Moralioglu – “and was thinking about paint splatters and 1950s prints left out in the rain. And while last season I was preoccupied with a girl, I’m now thinking about a woman.”

 

 Moralioglu解释他的系列的灵感是来源自“一个轻微精神错乱的艺术家的妻子”。“我看过电影‘Pollock’-Moralioglu接着说 ’‘当时脑子里面闪现的是泼洒油漆和遗落在雨中的50年代的印花。 我在上一季考虑的是女孩,这一季我所得设计是想去表现一个女人。‘

 

 

 

It`s a mature inspiration and the effect is stunning. Erdem has gone really edgy making colors explode like fireworks on fabric. Bold, painterly prints, full of splashes and cross-hatched brushstrokes are dashed off from a palette of raspberry, ocher, peacock blue, and emerald.

 

这个是个很成熟的灵感,出来的效果是非常出众的。Erdem 变得非常的前卫,颜色的冲撞就像是布料上面突然的出现的烟花。勇敢的创意,有美术感的印花,像充斥着野梅,赭石,孔雀蓝,和祖母绿的调色盘。

 

 

And there is a lot more I could say about these highly desirable clothes, but I guess the best way is to discover it yourself. See you @ Alter!

 

太多太多可以来形容这一季无比诱惑的服装,我想最好的方法就是你自己去发现它的美。 Alter 期待你的光临。

Today we have a pleasure to introduce one of the most exciting pieces that just have arrived to our store. We are talking about IOSSELLIANI, jewelry that is all about the glamour modernity and mystery.

 

今天我们很荣幸能介绍才到达我店最为华丽的饰品。对,是IOSSELLIANI, 珠宝永远是一个充满华丽和神秘的饰品。

 

 

Roberta Paolucci and Paolo Giacomelli, people who stand behind the brand have launched their company in Rome 1997. Before they have both worked and cooperated with Romeo Gigli, Missoni, Fiorucci, Alessandro Dell’Acqua, Antonio Marras, and Kenzo.

 

1997年,Roberta PaolucciPaolo Giacomelli在罗马建立了他们自己品牌的公司。在这之前,他们俩和时尚品牌Romeo Gigli Missoni Fiorucci Alessandro Dell’AcquaAntonio MarrasKenzo 合作过。

 

 

They are strongly influenced by the Italian classic jewelry and in every collection they show their love for vivid materials crafted into modern shapes with the enormous heritage of tradition.

 

意大利的经典珠宝对他们有很强的影响,每个系列他们展示了他们用传统的工艺把多彩材料制作成现代感的外观。

 

 

That is the basic knowledge that you should have before you slip into the beautiful, imaginary world of mystery that they have created.

 

在你进入这个美丽的迷幻世界之前你必须知道这个品牌的制作理念和传达的设计风格。

 

 

 

 

 

 

In Autumn/Winter 2011-12 Collection the echoes of  S\S 2011 are combined with a brighter, more flirtatious images, full of details and shades. As designers introduce the collection, it`s all about the contrast: illusion and balance, light and fire, fun and mystery. 

 

2011秋冬系列中所表现的,是2011年春夏系列的特色结合了更为艳丽的色彩,和更多挑逗的图画,细节和阴影部分有明显的突出。像设计师介绍的他的这一系列说道,这个系列就是要表现一个强烈的对比效果:幻觉和平衡,光感和火花, 娱乐性和神秘感。

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So just for inspiration – imagine -  treasures scattered in an ancient Indians place, blinking out of a dusty chests in an afternoon sun. Isn`t it a picture that we all want to discover one day?

 

 

灵感会是什么呢,让我们来想象一下, 珠宝散落在一块古老的印度大地之上,在一个艳阳的下午天,挂在胸前的珍珠闪闪发光,这不就是我们想在某天去发现的一副画面么?

 

 

 

 

 

But before that will happen, IOSSELLIANI gives as a hand. Variation of faded necklaces with studs and coloured stones, insect brass necklaces with colorful rhinestones and rings  topped with quartz and studs not only will please your desire but also will take you on a journey to a fairyland. Its beyond amazing, it`s…

 

但是在这些画面发生之前,但是作为一个品牌IOSSELLIANI给与了它的全部。退色处理的过的多条项链配以五彩的石头配件,昆虫黄铜的项链搭配彩色的莱因石, 戒指被镶嵌在石英上面, 铆钉将不仅是满足你欲望的唯一配饰,它将带给你一个绝妙的旅程。或许,一切的一切将远远超越完美。。。

As designer explains, “prisms and reflective fabrics” were the inspiration that sparked him to use the rainbow neon colors and metallic, vivid prints. Perfect, straight form designs together with colorful cashmere, and light-catching lamé give the impression that futuristically pieces cross each other with a retro-romantic mood. The effect is so outstanding that there is no doubt that it will be a next influential hit.
