Southampton Row, London Fashion Week
—SCROLL DOWN FOR MORE IMAGES—
Quick tangent: I have my biases when it comes to runway looks. I like a little bit of colour, I like flattering lines, but really, simple is always better in my book. When was the last time you thought highly of someone who was clearly trying to do too much whilst trotting down the street in 5 degrees of layers and clash? More importantly, why don’t designers ever take note from this?
On the whole, I liked the Osman collection. During the runway presentation, however, I’m certain I liked it a whole lot more. This is weird, because while the images I took here adequately represent the fabric and texture type, what you don’t really see is how the fabric actually moved on the models (unlike say, this). This is a nice collection, the pearls embroidered in the dresses are a touch of high class, but … I dunno … in person, I was excited. There’s a shimmering silver look halfway down this post that is just excellent, and a blue/black clash combination that Osman Yousefzada manages to pull off that pleasantly surprised me (I’m normally no no NO on this). This was one of my viewing highlights from London this season; I can only hope that the quality jumps off from these images the way they did in person.
