Bora Aksu – Styled By Leith Clarke for London Fashion Week Autumn Winter 2012

17 February 2012 by

Word has reached Grazia Daily that Leith Clarke, the celeb stylist, founder of Lula magazine and best mate of Alexa Chung has styled the Bora Aksu Autumn/Winter 2012 show – which has just taken place.

This news comes a day after we revealed that Bora had established a collaboration with Bracher Emden on a fabulous handbag line, which gave us a HINT of the colours in Bora’s new collection – orange, mushroom, grey and black. With a hint of fuchsia. (We were so right!)

Clarke is well known for her cute but edgy styling; elegant but with an attitude. In short; Alexa Chung. Bora, on the other hand, is renowned for his shredded gothy-ness, so we've been excited to see what this collaboration could bring to his show.

As we said yesterday, Bora is a well established, but not exactly centre-stage figure on the London Fashion Week roster. However, his hiring of Clarke could change all that - not only does she have a very 'now' look, but she's also super-well connected; Michelle Williams, Alexa Chung and Keira Knightly are all names likely to be found in her phone.

We like the first pics from Bora's show a lot - and we reckon we spy some Clarke-esque details like Peter Pan collars, giant bow ties and tailored cropped jackets. So could this be the beginning of a resugence in Aksu's success? Maybe! Watch this space for details...
