I just received these images of the spring/summer release from Australian label OSKAR, and I’m over the moon that a label has created a whole range that I can see myself wearing during the upcoming hot summer days, as well as the sweaty summer nights. White, black, and just a hint of navy blue is something I very obviously identify with, and clean monochrome minimalism is truthfully, pretty easy to screw up. Multiple black pieces not matching properly (it sounds idiotic but it’s 110% true); layering can look clumsy. This collection has eradicated the fear of a minimalism faux pas, and offers origami tailoring and neoprene to add something interesting to your layers. There’s a very youthful energy to this collection, while still being worldly, casually elegant – wearing any of these styles with slides or sneakers is my summer vibes for 2015. I’m bloody excited to get my hands on some of these pieces.

You probably saw the preview images of Opening Ceremony’s collaboration with artist Rene Magritte, same as I did. You probably thought it looked pretty fucking amazing too. Well, it’s finally here, released and available on the OC website. And it looks as good as we all thought it would.
The collection is part of Opening Ceremony’s ode to Belgium, and Rene Magritte is, in their words, “one of the country’s greatest artists”. Photographed by Phillipe Jarrigeon, the collection includes a ridiculously amazing lineup of sweatshirts, button shirts, a range of tops, skirts, slim-fit pants, dresses, and most amazingly, a add-on collaboration with shoe giants Manolo Blahnik, Van’s, and Birkenstock. All items feature images from twelve of Magritte’s most iconic pieces, including Sheherazade, The King’s Museum, The Lovers, Good Connections, A Blow to the Heart, and Ladder of Fire.
The entire collection is now up on Opening Ceremony’s website, and I doubt the pieces will last long. Too good.
