The Bora Aksu show blew me away. I simply loved it.
The show opened with nine models all in a palette of creams and nudes. They stood still at the opening of the runway for a few minutes for the audience to appreciate the image that was in front of them, which was perhaps re-creating the original Edwardian postcard that Asku drew his initial inspiration from.
Navy, black and a flash of choral complimented the fresh, neutrals perfectly throughout the show.
The entire collection has a delicate and feminine feel with hints of Edwardian dressing via slightly bustled hips, lots of ruffles and frills, maxi and midi lengths and peplum detailing. I love the panelled detailing and structured shapes and the floral headbands seen on some of the models. The collection had a slight lingerie feel to it and the fishnet/lycra tights added edge to the graceful and elegant collection.
