Modern Queen – Bora Aksu SS13

Bora Aksu SS13

‘Modern Queen’

‘For every woman born a princess, destined to become a Queen’. It was evident from the glorious crochet wool crowns that there was a regal undertone to Bora Aksu’s SS13 collection. The designer quotes Marie,Queen of Romania as inspiration for the collection. Her love of Art Deco, botanical gardens and her racy love life. Marie had many admires, she was a beautiful and powerful woman. Such qualities were reflected in the collection, the pale blues, soft greys and fresh whites create romance whilst the mustards golds and corals pack a vibrant punch. Creeping vines in Art Deco shapes add intrigue and depth. To say this was a beautiful collection is an understatement.
