For Bora Aksu, his AW14 collection was a personal and playful one. With his inspiration coming from old drawings and letters of his mother's from when she was a teenager, the clothes embodied the nostalgia of days gone by. The opening looks were printed and patchwork, all fairly monochromatic, contrasted by a subsequent rainbow of colours.

The clothes were detailed yet easy; slouchy pockets, baggy shorts and roomy skirts showed a very feminine and poetic side to the design. Peter Pan collars adorned every top, making even the smartest of garments youthful. The cute sock and shoe combination just confirmed what we already knew: this is a trend that is not going anywhere. Hair was milk-maid style, plaited round the head and tied with two white ribbons, a gorgeous hairstyle that topped off a fresh and lively collection.
