Bora Aksu: A peasant journey

Bora Aksu showcased a rustic peasant inspired collection that saw bell hems and bonnets feature in a show which moved from the light and ethereal, to the tailored.

It was all about wool, heavy set textures, warmth and printed simplicity at Bora Aksu this season. The designer dressed his models for red riding hood esque forest adventures in dusty pink and cream wool dresses, punctuated by foam-like appliqué.

Tights were a key feature, every model wore them and they were too printed with the same repeated floral pattern that punctuated skirts and tailored jackets.
