Designer Oz Go moves from intergalactic sportswear to something casual yet corporate as inspired by the ancient cultures of Egypt and India.
It was like something out of Tarsem Singh’s The Fall when Oz Go revealed his 10-piece collection that combined Indian chromatic aesthetics with Egyptian-inspired geometric patterns and details to create a wardrobe for the woman who wants more out of her pantsuit than just a slimmed down version of her significant other’s officewear. The tailored blazers, pants, dresses, as well hip-hugging minis to floor-length serpentine skirts use stark white as a base before bursting into shades of black, amber, scarlet, and Phthalo blue. The pattern-work provides an overall hourglass-silhouette that slips and slopes along a woman’s contours to accentuate—sometimes, even exaggerate—her natural curves and elongates her frame. The entire show is pulled together by use of ornate nose rings and gem-encrusted shoes to leave that luxe yet casual that Oz knows only too well.—DEXYLEBOWSKI
