patiently impatiently waiting for an OSMAN collection between February and June. Unquestionably, one of my favourite designers, Osman Yousefzada keeps creating and I keep lapping it up. Fall 2015 was a glamourous array of fabulous evening wear. More commercially driven, his resort collection presented mostly daywear. Come November, women will have their wardrobe needs satisfied by this talented man.
A distinct Eastern feel is what other editors have been referencing when reviewing this collection. Striped silk pyjamas in rust, burgundy, blue and silver were a reflection of the theme.
The Turkish sheepskin-hide cocoon coat is more of a wintry offering (the collection will hit floors in November, so commercial season appropriate rather than the resort). It is perfect for a sojourn in the verdant hillsides of Bhutan. The sheepskin was seen in another wrap jacket with flared sleeves. Styled with a navy flared skirt, the look was stylish and perfect for the jet-set woman.
The navy blue leather that is scattered throughout the 36-piece collection is quite airy considering the fabric type. One skirt with different slashes exposed some skin. A spaghetti strap leather top wasn’t the most flattering once paired with black palazzo pants which weren’t to my liking. A leather cape with a tie at the neck was Yousefzada’s take on a caped vigilante. She’s certainly the most sensibly dressed and stylish one.
When the bright orange floor sweeping skirt, with white squares and diamond shapes, took the floor I was in love. Leave it to Yousefzada to create a desirable red carpet moment waiting to happen. Taylor Swift, Rose Byrne, Elizabeth Banks: take note. The Emmy Awards are coming up soon (September 20th) and the finale gown would be perfect for the red carpet. A burgundy and orange brocade strapless gown. Stylists of Hollywood; answer our prayers.
Topping the collection off was milliner, Stephen Jones’ headpieces, and metallic square-toe boots. Osman’s collections have me running out of superlatives. He is immensely talented and one of London’s best.
