Let’s pretend it’s 1969 forever: Ossie Clark f/w’09

London’s starting to swing again; the revived Ossie Clark line rocked the London fashion week runway monday night with the new Fall/Winter’09 collection. Eventhough it was nothing ground breaking it still felt very worthy of bearing the Ossie name and legacy. Avsh Alom Gur did what the line needed to get it’s kick-back-into-gear-start, by bringing the classic 70s designs back and making them wearable and relevant today. We’ll see where he takes it from here(Spring/Summer’09 was nothing to speak of), but it’s nice to see these classic shapes come back and eventhough they’re not original as being Ossie, they are what fashion seems to be missing nowadays. I love London fashion week, it has so much potential seeing what British fashion has brought us in the past. I like to pretend that people like Henry Holland don’t exist, Pixie Geldorf did not just walk the runway at  Luella and PPQ and that i don’t need a time machine to feel what it felt like to to be Pattie Boyd or Marianne Faithfull in those amazing days.

the strongest elements on the Ossie runway were;
