London Fashion Week – Bora Aksu SS14

By September 15, 2013 Events, LFW

Turkish designer Bora Aksu celebrates 10 years at London Fashion Week with his spring/summer 14 collection: Nazar.

As he realised it has been already a decade since his LFW debut, he decided to go back to his roots and get inspired in his childhood memories from his colourful homeland, Turkey.

Traditional handwoven Turkish textiles are incorporated into pencil skirts, dresses, cropped jackets and boleros. Layering continued to be key, by using laces, silk, chiffons, quilted cotton all adding an extra texture to the pieces. Bora Aksu commonly uses bright colours and this was not the exception. The colour palette included off-whites as a key colour, but he then injected bright yellows, blues and hot fuchsia as a reference to his hot long summers. Classic shapes and collared necks predominated the collection.

It wasn’t one of my favourite collections from him, I must admit.  He did achieve his full intention of bringing his roots to the show, but it was way too traditional, it even made me think of Dorothy from Wizard of Oz. However, I did like the total white looks, necks and pumped shoulders that opened the show and that yellow dress of layers over layers that closed it. I would stick to his previous AW show by far, see it here. What do you think?

black and white skirt

 

It’s been a long time of me saying ‘I’m wearing the stripes today…’ but for a reason I ended up with a complete different look. Therefore, this time I finally wore this new skirt and went for the complete black & white look. Just to start with the monochrome trend I’m loving so much. Hopefully next time I’ll be able to wear it bare legged… Spring Spring Spring…!

New in: Ash Ash baby

By December 19, 2012 NEW IN, OUTFITS 1

FINALLY…Better late than never… Ash sneakers in my wardrobe. I must admit I was quite skeptical about this trend, however, since summer I started the search, but it became a cycle: found it, unconvinced by the sole or shape, checked the price, thought it was not worth it, that it would be out of fashion very soon and exit. But, after months of thinking about it, as soon as I saw this pair I finally felt for them. The shape is perfect. Plus, I absolutely LOVED the colour and mix of leather with suede. What do you think?
