There are only a few things that will get me out of bed the day after a post-Bafta party – and fresh designer Osman’s autumn/winter collection is one of them.
What this man doesn’t know about jersey just isn’t worth knowing. When four models opened the show in beautiful purple jersey dresses – draped in a Grecian style – I knew we would be in for a treat. Osman, who believes Cate Blanchett would be his ideal customer, loves strong, stylish female figures with a sense of adventure. This certainly came across in his show. Hot pinks added a splash of confident colour to the runway – Osman even joined in with bright pink socks and a shirt – a striking dresses, tops and trousers showed just how versatile jersey fabric can be.
Best look of the show? It has to be the grey check and leather jacket, worn over an icy grey long jersey skirt. It was elegant, chic and worthy of space in any wardrobe.
