GILDED MINIMALISM
London: Osman Yousefzada has flown under the radar for quite some time now, his unassuming, minimal collections often taking a back seat to London’s splashier labels, but this season’s elegant offering may finally bring him the attention he deserves. For fall, the designer played with asymmetry, placing uneven sleeves on tops and sheaths and attaching tilted flounces to dresses and skirts. Expert draping made for appealing tops with single sleeves. Yousefzada sent out a range of pants, flattering in their wide-legged proportions. Capelets were also a key item and were shown on their own or attached to tops or dresses. Baroque-inspired gold embroidery decorated many items in the show, and gold foil cloqué and silver knits added to the feeling of opulence. The collection closed with three all-white ensembles, emphasizing his minimalist aesthetic and highlighting his tailoring skills. –Joanna Manganaro
