The marvellous Bora Aksu took an early slot on Friday morning to present a collection inspired by Queen Victoria’s paper doll of the celebrated romantic ballerina Marie Taglioni. The show opened with a group of girls dressed in trademark layerings of crisp snowy white and peachy beige. They wore coral lips and nails, huge diamante earrings and long hair tied sharply to one side. Black socklets under sandals and darkened lenses on glasses (a new collaboration with eyewear designer Tom Davies) ensured this romantic collection had a thoroughly modern appeal.
