Designer Profile - Oska
OSKA is a German label founded in 1997 in Munich. Today, they are internationally known for clean-lined designs that come in easy and sophisticated palettes and silhouettes. OSKA’s look is both comfortable and elegant, they completely changed the European market at the turn of the millennium for the feminine aesthetic, giving women a revolutionary language to both live their life in elegance and comfort, and to express their individuality.
The creative heart of OSKA beats in the borough of Schwabing in Munich. Here, designers, pattern makers, technicians, and fabric purchasers perfect the unique look of OSKA. For over 10 years the majority of the OSKA production is done by their two partner companies of well-trained experts located in Šumperk and Prostéjov in the Czech Republic, a region which has a long tradition of textile manufacturing.
Premium materials are imbued with a versatile color palette and are deftly crafted into comely silhouettes. The nuances of color, with subtle gradations in tone create the signature OSKA look. From matte flora colors, delicate pastels to warm earth tones with shaded variations. A linen jacket receives the look of a washed pebble stone, a viscose shirt the subtle sheen of worn pearls, and a cotton dress the appearance of sun-bleached terracotta. The silk print of the SS17 collection was inspired by traditional Japanese brush strokes.
