London Fashion Week AW16 Day 4: Osman and JF London


Osman takes inspiration from the romanticism of Frances Hodgson Burnett's 'Little Lord Fauntleroy', as well as the disruptive influence of the 1980’s Buffalo movement, itself romantic in its revolutionary nature and freedom of thinking.

With a focus on the clash between hard and soft, sleekness and volume, rich textural pieces in luxurious brocade, silk, velvet and San Gallo lace sit alongside embroidery and the sheen of leather.

This results in a collection of modern classics that can be worn individually or layered.

With a background in tailoring, designer Osman Yousefzada continues to build upon the brand's signature silhouette, utilising clean lines and architectural shapes to create a sense of structure.

A continuation of the botanical print found in the brand's pre-fall collection, the designer’s own hand-painted illustrations are reinterpreted throughout in oversized prints, embroidery and appliqué.

This season’s colour palette includes poppy red, ink blues, textured black and rich burgundies.

This season, Osman’s menswear offering sees sharply cut suits in a slim fitting cropped silhouette take form in intricate macramé lace and floral brocade. 

Drawing upon the same clashing influences and romantic details of the women’s collection, these sit alongside bow collar shirts and an oversized fur-collared parka.
