Launch Slideshow

SHOW: Erdem Spring 2013

THEME: Ladylike chic with a vibrant, contemporary slant

ACCESSORIES: T-strap colorful heels, sunglasses, snakeskin cropped gloves

OVERALL TAKEAWAY: The British designer, Erdem Moralioglu, increasingly on the best-dressed lists that pull from the downtown cool girls and more uptown refined types, dished up another collection just as at home in Kate Middleton's trousseau as it is in Rachel Bilson's closet.

Moralioglu opened with quite a few snakeskin-heavy dresses, slick but ladylike. We doubt we'll see these on the Duchess of Cambridge anytime soon, but a girl can dream, right?

The collection gave way to textured florals, paired with cropped snakeskin gloves, and an equal mix of fitted silhouettes and sheer, looser shapes. The models, in their tight, low buns, strutted in lace, modified funnel necks, and a particular favorite, tailored jackets over the shoulders.
