Floral for spring should never be underrated when it comes to seasonal trends. Foydor Golan – who showcased his ss16 collection during the first day of LFW – have collaborated with Transformers, taking inspiration by the retro futuristic aesthetic of the robots’ original hand drawn illustrations they were given limited access to.

Combining bold and soft colours and manipulating shapes by creating cut outs on the lines of the original artworks, they added a hint of silicon to their new patterns: robotic yet native.

On the other hand, Bora Aksu gave a completely different interpretation of the floral theme by letting the audience step into a very personal memory of his own. Drawing from the lush gardens of his hometown – Izmir – where he used to visit as a kid to discover the romance of the light’s reflections at sunrise and sunset, he reflected the same ethereal light all the way through the collection.

Delicate hues of white, pink and egg yellow created the basic palette for an explosion of colours and flowers, with burnt oranges announcing the summer.

The collection was accompanied by shoes featuring magical garden illustrations in collaboration with Hotic.
