In a refreshing twist, Osman challenged his signature clean forms and exceptionally flattering tailoring with theatrical ruffles, opulence, rich colours and pitch black. A forceful feminine collection saw ruffles spiral from pastel gowns to organza dresses. Sophisticated ruffles and tiers sweeten the “street-chic flamboyance” of the collection, celebrating feminine beauty in its perfect balance.
OSMAN, the eponymous label from London-based Osman Yousefzada, made its debut in 2008. Deeply rooted in the creative worlds of both art and fashion, OSMAN’s unique architectural aesthetic and strong, sculptural designs both flatter and celebrate the woman’s body, qualities which have established the designer as one of London’s most exciting talents. Inspired by his interest in abstract art, ethnicity, and the costume of ancient cultures, OSMAN similarly excels in his bold use of colour and hand-drawn print. OSMAN’s fan base has expanded to include a plethora of famous names, including Beyonce, Alexa Chung, Emily Blunt, Felicity Jones and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Autumn Winter 19’s collection is romantic yet bold in iridescent hues embodied via sleek silhouettes. Paired against black, there are a plethora of prints adorned on Osman’s women of the world, as the collection represents them as “full feminine beauty in its perfect balance, enigmatic and triumphant.”
