Pollini-Rifat Ozbek Fusion

Given my current proximity to Istanbul, I went looking the other day for Turkish fashion designer, Rifat Ozbek, and his spicy and exotic fusions of east*west detailing. I was excited to discover that he is still working his magic as part of the Milanese-based team, Pollini-Rifat Ozbek. Their Autumn/Winter 2008 collection is incredibly chic and border-defying in its multi- cultural references and textile blends. I love Ozbek's fringe hat from Milan fashion week as well.
