Osman Collection for London Fashion Week Spring 2016

Frida Kahlo and a love letter she wrote to Diego Rivera inspired Osman Yousefzada’s collection for spring, which was a refined, androgynous and minimalistic paean to the Mexican artist. He opened with a smart white shirt with elongated collar and cuffs, worn with carrot-leg black trousers and a wide black patent leather belt like those worn by South American gauchos.

The Latin references continued with tiered minidresses in red or white that had flamenco appeal, and a blown-up ikat print in primary colors that came on a trio of looks, including a striking kimono wrap that was belted at the waist and worn with a matching full skirt. Yousefzada referenced Kahlo’s famous “Tree of Life” painting in the beading of the closing look – an elegant, yellow strapless column dress with a gray beaded tree that segued into a red roots design at the hem.
