Folk is the new Boho

borasksu.jpgAfter completing a BA Honours Degree in fashion at Central Saint Martins, Bora Aksu went on to do an MA degree. Turkish born Aksu is an incurable romantic designing clothes that smack of the beautiful nomad. Textile rather than ornate decoration, so you get fluid layers of bias-cut silk, chiffon and heavy cottons accented with leather or crocheted knit or lace. Often these contrasting fabrics are combined via intricate inset cutting to create an entirely modern but bohemian look.

His colours come from nature, cream, earthy, muted tones. Aubergine, army green, muted coral and cornflower blue are most prevalent with accents of white here and there. Knitwear is a key component; softly draped pieces gave a nod to volume without being too over-the-top. Velvet, tweed, wool and jersey were the other fabrics du jour – all with intricate touchy-feely qualities.
