At Oskar Metsavaht's Spring 2014 Collection for “Osklen” at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week, there was a sort of unspoken brashness, the clean lines and tailored separates spoke volumes in gem tones, embellishment, and palm tree print.
What made this collection cool was the use of light weight eco-friendly fabrics such as clear plastic and vegetable dyed-eco silk. Metsavaht chose a color palette of mostly bold gem toned colors such as blue, yellow, red, and every color of the rainbow that you could imagine, was composed of separates in see-through tailored sleeveless tops paired over pant was simple and easy. As the show progressed there was striped shells layered under crop tops and paired with matching shorts. Gel colored oversized sunglasses gave each look a futuristic edge as well as the use of see-through diamond shaped clutches. Hair and make-up was kept very clean and simple.
"The Osklen aesthetic represents the lifestyle of modern men and women in a world where the urban and the naturalistic, the global and the local, the organic and the technological co-exist. This balance is further exemplified by the brand's use of eco-friendly "e-fabrics". This season, Metsavaht utilizes ecological silk, formed by use of cocoons discarded by the industrial process and environmentally safe vegetable dyes.

Later in the night Oskar Metsavaht hosted the after party for the Osklen Spring/Summer 2014 show at Lit Lounge with DJ's Mia Moretti and Noemi Ferst.
