Bora Aksu 'Modern Queen' SS13 Catwalk at BFC Show Space. Photographs by Michelle Chai for Daisybutter.com.
True to the Bora Aksu aesthetic, the SS13 collection was regal, sumptuous, dreamy and simply beautiful, a perfect progression from last season that I fell for within seconds of standing in the BFC Show Space. I'd heard whispers and tidbits of backstage insider info about what this season had to offer, including flutters about fishtail braids and some sort of crown, but nothing really alluded to much other than my lack-of-Vitaminwater-induced 'I quite like a good crown' comments in the queue.

Inspirations for this season included Queen Victoria's granddaughter, who later became the Queen of Romania, hence embracing Romanian culture with beautiful English heritage. One of the more prominent influences stems from Aksu's adoration for botanical gardens: could there be anything more quintessentially British?! A regal yet pastel hued palette, dreamily soft textures and silhouettes, offsets of stunning floral graphics and intricate paper crowns made for my favourite show of the season, so far. Pass me the garden plum and colbalt violet please.
