It’s all white now
Getting your utilitarian chic, digital prints and romantic nudes in a tizzy? Abort fashion fretfulness and keep it simple, and don white, a perennial colour that has proven to be a timeless summer style essential. Because sometimes, simplicity is key, especially to set you apart from the crowd.
Crisp white embodies versatility too so channel your Grecian goddess with a sun-kissed tan and golden accessories or pair it with black for a chic monochrome look, and let this blank canvas be the base to your sartorial inspiration.
Case in point: London-based designer Osman Yousefzada’s “White Collection” SS 2010 – you may have read of the up-and-coming designer as he recently found himself in the middle of a fashion tittle-tattle, involving a dress from Victoria Beckam’s latest collection that bore too many similarities with one of his dresses which first appeared in his 2009-10 fall collection – who has created an immaculate collection of clean silhouettes, inspired by a white dress Mrs. Simpson wore on a visit to meet President Nixon, that focuses on flawless structure, strong architectural shapes and soft draping. Come summer, which trend will you be embracing?
OSMAN’s collection is stocked at S*uce in Dubai, 4 Kuwait in Kuwait, J Boutique in Bahrain, Mahat Boutique and Amna Group in Saudi Arabia and Aishti in Lebanon.
