Postcard Perfect Picture


After recently spying Bora Aksu's incredible line of paneled tights, I felt inspired to take a closer look at the London-based designer's entire Spring 2012 show, which I immediately fell in love with. The romantic collection of flowing, semi-transparent dresses adorned with perfectly placed frills and plentiful peplums was inspired by a series of antique postcards that Aksu found at a flea market.  The postcards, sent between Rose and Charles in 1905, and written in curvaceous French script, conjures vivid images of turn-of-the-century romance.  Even though the inspiration and the overall sentiment is laden with nostalgia, the designs themselves remain firmly planted in the present, perfect for some modern day romance.
