Osman LFW Sat 18th Sept 2010

It is clear that in the four years Osman Yousefzada has been showing at London Fashion Week, this has been his best and most developed so far. The designer, famed for his beautifully sophisticated tailoring and silhouettes did not disappoint crowds and the BFC fashion space on Saturday afternoon.

This SS11 collection felt like a chic take on the sport luxe trend that was seen making a massive appearance in New York last week. Brown woven dresses with asymmetric hemlines and boat neck styles nod to new form of relaxed evening wear that also makes a fine transition into uptown day time styling.

As the gradual hints of yellow and coral hues injected life into the show, it is clear block colouring is a key SS11 trend where Osman is concerned. A play on lengths and texture continues forward from this season but in a more refined and delicate way with a combination of patent fabrics juxtaposed with natural fibres such as cotton or linen paired with a sophisticated black evening trouser.

One green flapper style dress sparked a frenzy of light bulbs flashing with its loosely fitting, but still elegantly cut, top leading down into two perfectly pleated tiers drawing attention to a fantastic black ankle boot. This was followed by an equally delectable splash of yellow in the form of another well cut dress and bellowing gathered skirt.

Yousefzada sharpened his signature knack for giving straightforward-looking clothes a layer of interest with the asymmetrical denim sheath dress that leads the eye to a fantastically cut neckline and faint lines running horizontally in the fabric making the models appear another two foot taller that there already towering frames.

The fabulous fusion of camel tunics and chic black evening trousers was a look that is sure to be snapped up by buyers and fashionista’s alike. The curved hemline’s and subtle slits of the pieces allowed the camel trend to take on a more sensual and feminine look as we move into the next phase of our fashion calendar.

A stunning floor sweeping yellow dress rounded things up nicely as the finally of the show approached. The fabric clung and draped in all the right places, with the high neck line and perfectly balancing the bare arms and figure hugging composition. As the hemline kicked out the model appeared to glide across the runway and a hint of black wedge peep toe ankle boot could just be seen poking through.
