Osman Yousefzada showed off his clever cutting skills and elegant aesthetic for 07/08 with a show staged in the car park of Selfridges, an apt location for his principle sponsor Saab. The collection, entitled Icon, opened with Lily Cole in a golden halo headdress bearing obvious reference to religious symbolism, and was followed by an array of stunningly simple dresses that were intertwined with medieval influences and a good dose of the eighties. Zips that seemed to echo the cross of St George, and layered cuts reminiscent of chainmail armour were worn by Guinevere style maidens, whilst elsewhere hints of Grecian pleating  and 20s drop-waisted dresses added a softer facet to the enchanting medley.
