Inspired by the Golden Age of Piracy, ‘Tomorrow Is Ours’ captures the whirlwind romantic sensibility and adventurous spirit of treasure hunters, untamed damsels and pirate legends ruling the Caribbean seas during the eighteenth century. Looking to change their fortunes, these romantic anti-heroes were an embodiment of individuality and a symbol of freedom during an age of exploration.
Expect plentiful billowing ruffles and frills, paired with off-shouldered shirting, drawstring necklines and soft draping in a plethora of lightweight, and sometimes sheer, cottons contrasted with delicate lace detailing. Slouchy, double-breasted shirts and pants in simple stripes and toughened-up wrap skirts and tie-up spaghetti dresses in a breezy floral pattern are for all the dreamers inside of us. Raw fraying pleated hemlines, tie-up fisherman style pants, biker necklines, belted paper-bag trousers, relaxed linen trench coats and military-inspired bomber style jackets add a depth of modern masculinity.
Tough but with a fragile femininity, this latest Summer 19 collection by OSKER evokes images of a modernised pirate with a bohemian-like gypsy essence of unassuming nonchalance and casual effortlessness.
