Borne’s first ever collection rocked my world last season, when I had the joy to interview Elise Berger, the designer behind the label. So it’s hard to believe that this is only her second collection, as the last one was in about every magazine and on every website around, and AW11 is once again a very confident and unique collection.
Last season they hit the jackpot with their salmon-coloured jeans, which are such a trend right now, and something tells me the green Borne is using for AW11 will be all over the place once again. There’s ruffles and bows and scalloped edges and yet somehow it never feels overly girly, which I like. The materials are simple, super soft jerseys, silk, wools and denims. Although there’s lots of similarities to the Spring/Summer collection, the Borne girl has evolved, she’s a little bit more daring, a little bit more edgy.
Once again, one of my favourite labels for next season!
