Bohemians of various stripes have made a comeback on the London runways, and to glorious effect. Osman Yousefzada was just one of the city’s designers who was captivated by said colorful, arty lifestyle, and for his collection he took the late Talitha Getty as his muse.
The collection was ablaze with bright furs and brocades — the latter worked in motifs based on exotic wall tiles — as well as abstract Cleopatra eyes and trompe l’oeil designs of long bracelet-clad arms holding clutch bags. One of the brocades came in cobalt blue with a dash of pink, which Yousefzada used for coats and sleeveless shifts with a Sixties feel. The arms-in-bracelets design appeared on a faded pink jacquard shift, while a glamorous blue eye gazed from A-line skirts.
Coats were shown in a beautiful patchwork of cobalt and electric blue fur, and a cape shape was done in black sheepskin.
