Brazilian Fashion: Osklen
When the Hunters think of Brazilian fashion they think of: Mini swimsuits, extreme low-cut jeans and sex. However there is more. When I (Niels) went to Rome, I bumped in to the Osklen store. Osklen is a Brazilian sportswear clothing company, owned and created in 1989 by Brazilian entrepeneur Oskar Metsavaht. They represent themselves as sportwear, but they offer far more than that. I was happily surprised by the fashionable, modern, endrogenous look and feel of the collection of Osklen. The fabrics and colours had a very natural look, with especially a lot of blue. For the girls: Beautiful mini dresses, sportive jumpsuits and transparant tops. For the boys: long cardigans, oversized sweaters and amazing shorts.
Osklen shops are located in: Brazil, Portugal, Italy, USA, Japan and Switzerland.
Funfact: When I (Niels) was in the shop, a stylist (who pretend to work for Vogue) asked me to put on some of the pieces of the collection. Since his model was too late, and he was soooo busy and he couldn’t wait for the model. Of course I didn’t bother and helped the stylist.
