So today we have had the official launch of the Osman Yousefzada’s capsule collection “Little Black Dress” for Mango.
Fast Fashion goes back to black? Or it’s the simplest manner to settle back a sponsorship agreement (mng sponsored Osman’s catwalk). I don’t mind having more black dresses on the market. I’ll just ignore them as usual! But everyone’s making such a fuss about this collection, I had to write about it.
(in the picture above from left to right – Vanessa Miedler from Tatler, $80, Lina Basma from Selfridges $100, Kim Hersov from Harpers Bazaar $100, Stacey Duguid from Elle $160, Emma Elwick from Vogue $100)
Besides the fact that some of the heavy “style scene” names are fans of Osman’s creations (Kate Moss, Lily Cole, Thandie Newton), the dresses don’t look that appealing to me (ok, maybe the one ending up in blue? As a ray of hope breaking the black?). By all means, I own a little black dress myself! Never worn it, though… Couldn’t really find the occasion to show my “serious” self in a lbd.
Are you one of the lucky few to have assisted Selfridges launch this morning? Were you impressed by Osman’s Little Black Dress Collection for Mango? If not, we could always talk about the “little black dress” in general – is the lbd really unavoidable in one’s wardrobe?
