The hopeless romantic designer Erdem Moralıoğlu has provided mesmerizing looks for both women and men. The women’s fashion designer has created looks for men for the first time ever. Although, this a first for a men’s items, he nailed every piece of clothing. The collaboration was announced in July, items will be available in 220 stores nationwide and online today. Every detail of this launch has ERDEM stamped on it. From the clothing to the graphics and presentation of pieces.

Erdem’s floral pattern and print choices are conservative and risqué, mix-matching each piece gives a sense of country-side life in London meets LA chic. Being a lover of pant-suits, I was completed mesmerized by the jacquard-pattern blazer and matching trousers. Also, Erdem must love everything lace and silk, pieces for H&M include dress of lace and for men, silk blouses. Another one of my favorites for men by Erdem is wool pant-suits, coats, and Nylon track hoodies. Check out Kontrol favorites below!
