SAO PAULO – With a “manifesto in the defense of the oceans,” the Osklen brand opened on Monday the second day of the 46th Sao Paulo Fashion Week and set the tone of what promises to be an edition marked by “transposition” and creative demands.
“A manifesto in defense of the oceans, in a conceptual, stylistic and concrete form,” Oskar Metsavaht, stylist and creative director of the brand, told the audience in his introduction of what to expect from the latest collection.
In a true tribute to the marine world, in which monochromatic pieces predominated, the first set from the ASAP Oceans collection on the catwalk was a white dress with blue details superimposed by trousers in the same shade.
The show was marked by compositions in absolute colors, and the palette featured white, blue, black and the more sober tones.
True to his proposal, which combines a modern lifestyle with socio-environmental practices, Osklen masterfully conveyed a narrative that presented the fusion of the nautical universe with diving uniforms and the “poetry” of the fisherman’s character.
They highlighted prints that showed various species of fish from Brazil, crabs and waves, as well as the flora of the country, in light pieces and full of movement.
In this 46th edition of the Sao Paulo Fashion Week, Osklen remained committed to the “circular economy” and the use of “more conscious and sustainable” raw materials and opted for the use of raw materials such as silk, wool, cotton and leather.
