Black and block was where it was at for the Osman Spring Summer 10/11 show, with black mixed in with striking black colours dominating most looks. The show illustrated a gradual, tran-seasonal story which began with silk lined wool coats formed with ‘pop out’ panels and smooth line tailoring and came full circle with some beautiful flowing summer frocks in vibrant splashes of colour; candy pink, yellow and lime.

The SS 11 collection embodies a breezy simplicity created with woven and soft patent leathers, which contrast with lightweight gossamer silks layered to create a fine balance of textures and shapes.  Asymmetric dresses developed in organic denim are key to the range, additionally meticulously cut navy flared trousers feature through the collection.  Key tailored items for spring seem to be the way forward while new silhouettes in rainwear reference to 90s minimalist style.
