Opening with a pop of bright fuchsia, followed by heavy-duty golden-trimmed embroidery, London fashion’s favorite minimalist is certainly having an embellishment crush. Or, if we go down the artistic reference route, we might even say he’s in his pink period – judging by the shades of pink, from bright magenta to luminous champagne, that dominated this season’s offering. There were also, of course, his customary cobalt and blue shades, but now in brighter and more daring combinations.
 
Osman’s signature elongated stiff peplum blouses worn over structured trousers seemed to tap into the dresses over pants trend that has been circulating runways from both sides of the pond. The white and pastel leathers, combined with body caressing silks, offered exquisitely flattering summer options that will undoubtedly please those who have already grown to love the brand. The structural black shawl with zippers and stiff jacket collars were another testament of what Osman does best- framing the face and body with severely precise shapes that stay unmoved even down the runway.

There was also a heightened sense of drama this season – with ankle skimming shawls hanging from the back of blouses and particularly editorial square-sleeved leather jacket with eye-popping, heart-shaped embroidery.  All of his oversized, voluminous pieces were even more refined than usual, especially a dress with a sunray like embroidery, which was unquestionably the best look of the show. However, the satiny sheen on some pieces, especially on some of the blacks, did not do them any favors.
 
While his black Shibari or Japanese bondage inspired pieces did not quite marry with his otherwise elegantly feminine aesthetic, these pieces could be justified as part of Osman treading on new territory, which we feel will take him a long way. Growing with enviable acceleration from season to season, Osman has certainly raised the bar for his upcoming work.
