I’m liking the shoes and handbags from Burak Uyan’s first solo collection.
Architecture, organic shapes and the work of Swedish sculptor Eva Hild are among designer Burak Uyan’s inspirations for his first collection under his own name. “I like to work with overlapping superimpositions and organic shapes, mixing round and geometric shapes and different textures,â€ said the 31-year old designer of Turkish descent. “There are no specifically evening or day styles. The styles are meant for all day, every day.â€ The debut collection, unveiled in a Saint HonorÃ© showroom in Paris, includes flats retailing for around $650 and high heels that will be priced up to $1,500, depending on materials. With experience designing for Givenchy and Giambattista Valli, in addition to his most recent stint at AperlaÃ¯, Uyan said he is thrilled to be working under his own name. “It was the right time,â€ he said.(source)
