Bora Aksu A/W 2014 a by xplusyequals.

It's been several seasons since I last attended a Bora Aksu catwalk show, and I've missed seeing his wonderful creations up close. This season he was inspired by his mother's school days, taking girlish elements and giving them a unique Bora twist in an unusual colour palette of monochrome combined with sugar pink, navy blue, canary yellow and blood red. Construction of the garments for Dear Birsen was, as always, thoroughly modern - similar toned high tech textured fabrics patched together to create an intriguing silhouette that included outsize puff sleeved shoulders, mesh dirndls, a boxy cape and sweeping A-line skirts.
