Inspired by Little House On The Prairie, this collection is a yearning for youth and a simpler time. From running through tall prairie grasses, climbing trees, frolicking through creeks to sleeping under the stars, Cords Of Memory is an ode to the pioneer women of the late nineteenth century travelling across the plains to find a place to call home.
Strong, fearless, independent, loving and curious, these prairie girls knew hardship and peril well. A rough-and-tumble-kinda-girl, a tomboy at heart, her clothes with their smudges of dirt, grass stains and tiny rips were designed with the purpose of functionality and practicality. Pared-down, versatile basics with a boyish touch filled her wardrobe to allow her to run as wild and carefree as her pioneer spirit.
Relaxed silhouettes with ankle-grazing dresses, high neckline shirts and wide-leg culottes evoking a pioneer-girl vibe are modernised with scallop-hemlines, tie-ups, ruffles and OSKER signature raw deconstructed finishes. Cinched-in waistlines, soft draping, billowy volumes and long lines dominate the collection in a neutral colour palette of sand, charcoal, white and black, highlighted with moss green, dirt brown and ice grey shades from nature.
Time to strike out to the wilderness with Cords Of Memory this Fall.
