The Erdem Spring 2013 show started with a selection of snakeskin prints, some accented with pretty blue lace.

Before I could get out my Blackberry to tweet that Erdem Moralioglu had turned his back on his signature florals, look seven’s blooming lace overcoat made me sigh with relief.

On a colour palette of pastel blue, lilac, lemon and pale pink, fit-and-flare ladylike dresses, high-neck tops and dresses with contrasting collars, dresses with sheer overlays, jackets worn over the shoulder, cigarette pants and skirts were adorned with beautiful floral appliqués.

The pieces which really stood out where the ones with striking neon blooms.

Key accessories included lace or floral printed Nicholas Kirkwood chunky platforms, bug-eye sunglasses and driving gloves in lace or snakeskin.

The fresh-faced models’ hair was pulled back into a tight chignon with a touch of orange applied only to the bottom lip.
