Having worked on his collection a few years ago, it was amazing to see how high Osmans profile has rocketed, his show now being firmly on schedule. Entitled “Savage Pagoda” a unique vision of Japanese Samurai martial costume, interlaced with South Asian influences and confined within a new elongated silhouette. The collection showcases Osman’s love of clean lines, architectural shape sand draping. Neoprene and wet-look rayon fabrics were used to create midriff baring tops, blazer jackets and sharp cropped trousers. A giant raffia hat was one of the first designs to meet us, teamed with a white stiff cotton dress and neon coral lips. Blouson shirts with pleats, androgynous black suits and black patent stilettos heels and man style brogues. Silver and gold swirls of wool are placed onto sheer black shirts, covering the models modesty! Apple green, white, black, pink and striking royal blue make up the colour palette. A more commercial collection then in times gone by, but a very sellable, minimal but well though out one none the less.
