Borna’s visionary take on fashion established her as a cutting edge designer since the launch of her Paris based label. Inspired by giants of the big screen, she followed an innovative approach to reality, embracing wearability without sacrificing the ethereal aspect of ephemeral existence.SS13 continues the designer’s extraordinary vision of fashion. Miami’s Art Deco architecture is the main inspiration of this collection. A 1920’s cut is paired with silk fabrics in vivid colours that echo the bright South beach facades. The pieces reflect the glamour of the era, when illustrious personages of the likes of Mr. Fisher ruled the day. Borna&Fils incorporate the period’s rich cultural references into the collection’s colour palette. The light motive of Miami’s pink Flamingo adds a fun aspect, so as to show that fashion and joie de vivre go hand in hand.
Ribbons used in striking colour and texture combinations give the pieces a contemporary look. The collection features soft blazers and midi length skirts alongside silk t-shirts and blouses. Silk jumpsuits in bright colours are also staples. Believing that getting dressed is one of the essential reasons for getting up in the morning, Borna&Fils play in tune with Aaron Slim’s immortalised photographs of Palm Springs lifestyle in the 1950’s, when making yourself beautiful was in itself a “raison d’être”. SS13 collection will appeal to women who like statement items made with luxurious fabrics and Borna&Fils’ signature style.
Far from frivolous, it is for those whose brains have evolved over time to let the era be a backdrop for whatever they are here to exude
