SPFW: A Rainy Day At Osklen


After a groundbreaking fall collection with a nod to futuristic grunge, Osklen kicked off the spring shows in São Paulo yesterday with a rather familiar presentation, starting in shades of heather gray and white, and evolving to olive and black, with a print or two in the mix, and a little ombre as well. The inspiration was the rain, but clearly what really moved designer Oskar Metsavaht this season was the centenary of the Japanese immigration in the country. The texture of shirts, shorts, and anoraks resembled that of silk kimonos, and the unfinished edges on skins evoked the deconstructive work of Japanese designers. The collection was at is best in the beaded t-shirt dresses and on the white and black jumpsuits worn by Bruna Sotilli.
