London Fashion Week SS20 – Erdem

Erdem’s SS20 collection is a passionate tribute to Tina Modotti, and her metamorphosis from rural Italy to silent Hollywood star to photographer of communities in rural Mexico to communist agent and activist. Her evolving identity had an echo in her appearance, playing a crucial role in her mythology.

Her story is not about fashion, but about the power of dressing as a form of self-expression to communicate something far deeper.

As a result, the SS20 collection is strong, powerful, including references to vintage Victorian dress, military utility wear and Mexican traditional clothing.
