ERDEM DRESSES SMYTHSON: Following a successful collaboration with Giles Deacon earlier this year, Smythson has called on Erdem Moralioglu, who designs under the label Erdem, to create a collection of notebooks and diaries for the fall. The Turkish-British designer, known for his whimsical watercolor prints, has covered Smythson’s leather-bound notebooks in abstract floral prints taken from his 2010 resort collection. The books feature orchids, poinsettias and geraniums in a palette of cornelian, white and midnight blue. “The collection is about Japonism, but a kind of Japonism décontracté,” said Moralioglu. “It was before a trip I took to Japan so I was kind of channeling something of what I dreamed it would be like.” The collection, which goes on sale in November, will also include the 2010 Panama and Soho diaries bound in cream leather with an illustrated look from the designer’s fall collection on the cover. Prices are yet to be confirmed.
