London: A stripped back colour palette of head-to-toe white, red and black allowed Osman Yousefzada to hone his creative energy on texture, proportion and fabric. The models glided down the colossal hallway of the Tate Britain in a mix of fluid and architectural silhouettes. Cut outs added a modern edge to matching separates whilst more languid shapes such as flowerpot flares and floor sweeping skirts added ease and movement. Osman’s textures where rich and intimate, juxtaposing the minimalism of the silhouettes; blocks of sheepskin were added to panels of galactic embroidery, a black zippered jacket was covered in contemporary plasticized velvet whilst marbled brocade shimmered supreme throughout all three colour stories. Oversized buttons, pom pom hems and feathered flares lent a touch of whimsy to the collection – a nod to the off-beat eccentricity of Osman Yousefzada. – Anna Ross
