The OSKA Spring/Summer 2022 collection was inspired by Aïcha Tabbiz. Living with her family in a small house in Morocco‘s Rif mountains, Mama Aïcha has been a potter since her childhood, like her mother. Founding a cooperative with the women of the village, she teaches courses in the millennia-old ceramic tradition of this region to enthusiasts from around the world. Survival of unique craft and sustainable future was ensured in this way. However, these workshops go far beyond learning the art of pottery.
The culture of Morocco and Mama Aïcha is clearly visible in this OSKA collection that features striking silhouettes inspired by the traditional caftan, generous cuts, and controlled volumes. These reflect on the everyday demands placed on clothes. Softly feminine, minimalist pure and sporty, all in one. The looks of the new season undercut the character of the woman, the evolution and change with her. Newly interpreted trouser suits play with length and function. The sophisticated design infuses essential basics like blouses and shirts with versatility and functionality. Dynamism and lightness are at the heart of the collection and convey a positive mood. Natural fibers and techno fabrics provide comfort and a luxurious look. High-quality materials developed by OSKA can be described to shape the atmosphere as it is characterized by strong linen and cotton fabrics with structural stripes, inspired by Moroccan textiles in contrast to finely woven pinstripes in light cotton. The typical mosaic of a shady courtyard inspires printed linen and embossed leather bags. Mama Aïcha‘s colorful potter‘s outfit, interpreted as bright checks in the finest Irish linen, gives the collections a very personal, lively touch.
Colors range from soft, monochrome shades of sand and grey to bright magenta and radiant white to earthy, rich reds like henna, tangerine, and aubergine, nature-inspired shades of green recall cypress and verbena. Intense cobalt blue and fresh Citronelle yellow bring clarity and modernity. We feel a new beginning and look for fashion that expresses our energy and feels right in the current mindset. The OSKA Spring/Summer 2022 collection responds to these desires. It reflects newness, innovation, and sustainability.
