I was lucky enough to be invited to the Bora Aksu AW12 catwalk show on Friday. Bora Aksu is one of the designers and fashion houses that I focused my Buying and Forecasting project on last semester. Set to a haunting, ethereal, carousel/fairground soundtrack, the show was absolutely stunning, with a collection full of my favourite muted purple-grey colour with pops of vibrant tangerine – and according to Pantone, ‘Pink Flambe’ and ‘Rose Smoke’ – along with beautifully patterned, damask-inspired tights and damask-inspired prints on chiffon.
Above are some of my personal favourites from the collection, and some pretty sub-standard blogger-in-the-standing-ranks shots. Currently coveting? Patterned tights, oversized bow ties, muted titanium blazers and black suede lace-up booties. I also want a longline blazer and hooded faux fur coat on a completely unrelated note, but while we’re on the topic and all! Which are your favourite looks from the Bora Aksu AW12 collection? Big thank you to Pippa and Jamie for my invite too! ♥
