Osman takes springtime favorites like cropped sleeveless tops and printed dresses and turns them into the kind of stylish ensembles that inspire envy.
The show launches with a fresh-faced model selling the heck out of a white cropped top embroidered with tiny ivory clusters and a spangly skirt worn over crisp cropped trousers. A clinical textured smock appears next, finished with a handkerchief hem and worn with matching trousers, while an all-white bandeau top and high-waisted sackcloth pair of trousers make the far-fetched look like a real possibility for spring. When Osman isn’t doing monochrome white, he reaches for smooth denim seamless jackets, frayed-hem mini skirts, and eye-popping prints in red, cobalt blue, and purple paired with unexpected colors like seafoam green. More muted prints appear in the form of trees and multi-colored Xs, which help Osman play up the structured, sculptured apparel they appear on. The clothes on the Osman runway are seriously stylish – beautifully tailored, keenly detailed, touchably textured – but you also get the sense that they’re the kind of clothes fun-loving women will enjoy. They’re party pieces, but reserved for the type of parties that only A-listers attend. Really, they all work well for day, but transition easily to night. The only gown shown is the wedding dress closer, which is individuated from the rest of the collection with a technical lace.
