The prints in Bora Aksu’s spring / summer 2013 collection had a vaguely botanical inference; like roots reaching upwards into the skies of blue dresses or across sheer tights on legs. They were regal gardens, inspired by Queen Marie of Romania, grand-daughter of Queen Victoria. If the regality wasn’t clear from the feminine shapes and elegant gardens, then the crowns atop heads said the rest.
The collection had a definite unique beauty to it, with the softness of colour palette and the girlish fluffs of hair that could belong in Lewis Caroll’s Wonderland. These are dresses that don’t limit themselves to any one type of styling, either. On the London fashion week (LFW runway they felt innocent and feminine, but trade those pumps for boots and Aksu’s frocks have a very broad appeal.
