Osman Yousefzda designs capsule collection for John Lewis

If you have been reading this blog for a while, you know how much I love the idea of a capsule collection. This is why I was very happy to hear that a British fashion designer, Osman Yousefzda, is designing just that for British fashion retailer John Lewis.
The collection will be on sale starting September 9, and will consist of "jersey dresses in red and black, a black and white-piped dress-coat and a luxe-cashmere coat in pale grey", according to John Lewis.

That sounds really good to me! For those of you who remember my own attempt to build a capsule wardobe a while ago, those were actually the exact same colors I had planned for that capsule wardrobe as well, so this collection sounds right up my alley!

And I say that without even knowing much about Osman Yousefzda or his work otherwise. (From what I could gather, it seems he has Afghan parents, but was born in the UK, and runs his own label "Osman". His first collection was shown in 2006).

I just hope more fashion designers will do the same!
