London Fashion Week A/W 2011 - Bora Aksu
I love everything about Bora Aksu every season. I know that doesn't sound particularly objective and more than a little bias, but it's true. From the beautiful (and practical) notebook invites with divine illustrations on the cover, to his intricate detailing and embellishment, he always hits the spot.
I'm all about the romance of clothes and fashion, so no wonder the man who states “My signature style is based upon finding the balance point between contrasts. It’s romantic with a darker twist.”strikes a fashion-cord with me.
The things that got me most excited about this collection were the punchy use of apple green (a colour that popped up EVERYWHERE today, possibly one of THE colours of London Fashion Week A/W 2011), flirty skater-style skirts and dresses, heavily embossed leather harnesses over sheers and knits, and all mixed with his now signature palette of nudes, blacks and greys.
