The collection at Osman was a master class in modern jet set luxury with a bohemian twist. It was as if a diamond heiress had set out on a Moroccan adventure, indulging in exotic opulence along the way. Osman was inspired by ethnicity and the costume of ancient cultures. He used a mix of fine art prints, which were unexpected yet welcomed with open arms.
He began with ottoman tile brocade prints on sculpted tees and razor sharp tailored trousers. The ornate brocade prints came in luxe metallics, mainly gold and a silvery blue. Rich jacquards brought a touch of sparkle to the collection. These pieces were styled with a mix of bright azure blue, vivid orangs and neon yellows, which added an unusual sunshine, feel for fall. Prints continued but this time they were surrealist trompe l’oeil drawings of hands, purses and eyes on asymmetric skirts and shift dresses in black, gold and pink. This playful detail showed off Osman’s intelligent and directional style.
Scarves were the must have item of the collection; a blue scarf with gold fringing from the first look set the tone for the collection. They were skillfully knotted around the neck or lavishly draped around the shoulders in a range of materials including rabbit fur. The fur continued with oversized elaborate mink coats falling to the ground. Osman’s quirky references became clear when scarves were also worn around the waist like oriental style obi belts and even kimono suits made a comeback.
Other key pieces were the bejeweled mesh vests and slips, which were layered over tank tops and body con dresses. A variety of sculptured necklines added individuality to each look and made the collection a feast for the eyes. The crowd of observant eyes followed the layers of the garments, attempting to understand the exquisite way they moved. Images of the asymmetric hemlines do not serve them justice; they should be viewed in movement to appreciate the cut, the folds and the precision Osman used to execute them.
We saw daywear, workwear and eveningwear all present in the collection so there is something available for all occasions. The eveningwear stunned with numerous cocktail dresses, a shorts suit and a striking navy jumpsuit with the trompe l’oeil effect. Osman achieved a wearable collection due to the variety of separates he provided. They can be worn as seen on the runway or taken apart and worn in ones own unique style. With his unpredictable combination of textures, colours and silhouettes, Osman managed to strike the perfect balance between eccentricity and elegance.
This season Dublin based designer, John Rocha took the fashion crowd inside one of his romantic fantasies. The crowd was taken through a 19th century Bronte novel and the beloved Secret Garden; it was left to one’s own imagination. Rocha’s appreciation of nature became clear as the models glided down the runway and a dark secret garden of wild flowers unfolded. It is one of those collections where seeing is not enough but you want to be up-close to touch and feel the intricate and gloriously textured pieces.
Rocha used his signature crochet and delicately mixed it with lace, tulle and organza. There were gently folded organza dresses, layered lace dresses and beautifully tiered tulle skirts. He introduced A-line silhouettes with dresses and skirts at knee length or mid-calf, with the fullness of 50’s style ball gowns but the lightness of petals falling through the air. High waisted paper bag trousers paired with sheer bodices were an alternative option. Oversized trapeze style coats in rich velvets added a modern touch to the collection. This season was all about over-sized ruffle layers, which appeared in numerous asymmetric styles, draped across shoulders, hips, waists and inventively used to create corsages and hats, bringing a dramatic yet soft feel to the collection.
This collection was predominately dark with a moody colour palette of black, charcoal grey, deep greens and crimson. They were given an uplifting punch by a bold cherry red ruffled dress, which was the showstopper of the collection. Rocha is known for his handcrafting, beading and appliqué to garments so it was no surprised that the stand out pieces of the show were the full mid-calf dresses with 3D flowers details in pink, red and yellow hand appliquéd onto black organza. There were also lasered cut out petals and black crotchet dresses. The feel of his exquisite embroidery detail was decadence, pure and romantic.
With a collection that was intense yet delicate and wild yet feminine, Rocha really showed how fashion can be theatre and fashion can be art. It was not practical but truly beautiful. He finds success through acknowledging trends but remaining purely Rocha and he did not disappoint as he gave winter florals a new lease of life.
