Oskar Metsavaht brought the beach to Osklen’s modern aesthetic not only with the runway’s backdrop of a slowly sinking Brazilian sunset, but also via seaside photo prints, palm-frond appliqués and Neoprene pieces that embraced their scuba heritage. Early on, he mixed high-tech fabrics with transparent layers in pencil skirts, T-shirt tops and short-sleeve dresses that fit loosely over the body. But toward the end of the show, Metsavaht introduced a different, more tactile mood, with straw-colored rough silk against black suede, as in his capelet over a maxiskirt.
