Omar Mansoor LFW Spring/Summer ’21 “Kintsugi”

September 25, 2020

Omar Mansoor inaugurated his 16th presence in the London Fashion week with his collection, ‘Kintsugi.’ Kintsugi is the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold. The overarching meaning of this age-old practise is similar to the Japanese philosophy of wabi-sabi, which can be defined as accepting and rejoicing in one’s supposed ‘flaws’ and ‘imperfections.’

This collection revolves around sophisticated shades of ivory and white, which represent a spiritual coming into one’s own through self-acceptance and self-awareness, which in turn speaks of the onset of new chapters in one’s life. 

A firm believer of sustainability in fashion, Mansoor has used ‘deadstock fabrics’ (discarded fabrics which usually end up as landfill, hence polluting the planet), including recycled fibres for his Kintsugi collection. For the designer, fashion can be fun, glamorous and eco-friendly at the same time. Mansoor hopes that through his work, he is able to play his part in spreading awareness about the environment, and at the same time, encouraging the fashion world to adopt a circular model rather than a linear one. 

This gorgeous capsule collection primarily consists of two-piece looks which highlight multi-functionality. Tailored trousers to puffed sleeves tops that can be mixed and matched to create a certain outfit from day to evening wear.

This year, Mansoor’s collection was presented physically and digitally at Hard Rock Hotel London and online.
