It has been a few months since Fashion Week reared its’ majestic head over the cobbled stones of London but in that time we have been able to digest the collections, swoon over the pretty dresses, get gritty with the details and decide which collections were our favourite…
No surprises here that the Bora Aksu show was high on our favourites list. His collections are always highly anticipated at Aesthetic House – we love his feminine tailoring paired with romantic designs, and his AW13 offerings did not disappoint.
The show started with a muted grey and cream palette: tones that were carried through leather jackets, with fur trim worn over figure framing dresses, a distinct nod towards the 1920s and core inspiration of this collection. As the show progressed, the muted tones morphed into vivid pinks and deep magentas. There was a distinct shift from masculine to feminine tailoring as the flowing babydoll dresses were juxtaposed against structured shift dresses, complete with corsets and sharp silhouettes. Chiffon and lace layering played a large role, as did the beautiful face framing head pieces.
The collection was the perfect mix of feminine sophistication and alongside the luxurious colour scheme, I, for one, cannot wait to channel these 1920s vibes.
