NYFW S/S15 – Ostwald Helgason

A catwalk filled with mature girl scouts and contrasts was shown by Ostwald Helgason at New York Fashion Week.

Preppy elements of button-ups met comfort in oversized pockets. Lady-like high slits were accompanied by bold prints and colours. Elegant hems were matched with relaxed slip-on sandals. Crochet flowers, a boyish t-shirt, the beige hue seen throughout the show and a military-like vest all brings that scout girl feeling to the collection. The contrast between sophistication and comfort is perfectly balanced by the designer duo for next season. This is a collection for all those girl scouts who’ve grown up to be mature women but still want to stay true to those easy vibes and keep the highly practical style in an interesting and original way. This is definitely a wearable collection, though not for the shy one.
