Osman’s return to London Fashion Week heroed the creme de la creme of his moorish designs. Structured signature silhouettes, sumptuous colour palettes and fabrics we’d be happy to roll around in all day long, in short, he totally nailed it. Here’s three things that we seriously fell for:
RED ALL OVER
The one time NEWGEN recipient talked about his colour palette as an “exercise in constraint” focussing only on black, ice cool white and a spectrum of red. It was the latter’s bold post-box hue that had caused us a sharp intake of breath. Whether it was crimson doused onto simple sheath-like-gowns or marbled jackets with shades from garnet to ruby.
DAZZLE, DAZZLE, DAZZLE
There’s been no shortage of texture mash-ups at LFW and Osman brought his own twist on this by pairing delicate lace with plasticised quilted leather and a cut-out dress of sheer silk encrusted with beads. Front-row ooh-ing and aah-ing ensued.
Sheer pop socks are having a real moment on the street (the Topshop office has seen many a girl rocking her Jordans with a slip of a tight) and it was interesting to see Osman turn this casual look supremely chic by pairing them with stiletto heels and furry booties.
