I was looking in my wardrobe yesterday and I felt uninspired. You know when you have one of those ‘Meh’ days and nothing looks right or feels right and you just want something to uplift you. Well the fashion fairies spoke to me. Okay, it was one of the PR people who send me tonnes of press releases, but to me they are the bearers of good tidings on most days! Anyway, up popped an email containing information on the collection from Osman Yousefzada for Autumn/Winter 2011 collection and a little flicker of inspiration was lit.
Osman’s collection is replete as with fuzzy screen-printed velvets, bouclé, matelassé, brocade, and jacquard fabric makes it one of the richest for the season. And then there is the use of colour. The collections base palette of white and black and brackish gold is punctuated with bolts of red, hot pink, lime, turquoise, and a whole panoply of oranges which compliment his signature blue colour beautifully.
Osman’s precision, cut and approach reflect a feeling of minimal, modern yet whimsical luxury for Autumn/Winter. Just what you need when the weather’s got you feeling a little blue.
Shop Osman’s collection internationally as it is stocked at S*UCE boutique in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, Browns, Selfridges, Harvey Nichols in the UK, Fred Segal in the US, Podium in Russia, 4 Kuwait in Kuwait, J Boutique in Bahrain, Mahat Boutique and Amna Group in Saudi Arabia and Aishti in Lebanon.
