I have mixed feelings about the Erdem spring 2009 collection. On one hand I think some of the shapes and colours are very fresh. On the the other hand I am not a big fan of the Monet-ish prints. My high school grad dress had a very Monet inspired washy floral print that was very hot in 1990, but seems a little fey in 2008. It kind of reminds me of something you would buy in a museum gift shop, know what I mean? I felt this way about the Prada fairies of last year.
