”Well designed garments underline and strengthen a women’s personality,” says Katinka Twaalfhoven, CEO of OSKA Netherlands. Going against the grain of mainstream fashion, OSKA’s designs are based on silhouettes, combining relaxed wearing comfort with a guaranteed maximum flexibility, while emphasising the feminine figure. “Authentic designs and highquality materials bring out a person’s individuality, while being casual and elegant. A unique combination of features!” While the established fashion world focuses on the newest trends and fully elaborated styles, OSKA takes on a different approach.

als. By combining for instance one of our tops with a basic pair of trousers, you can easily create your own unmistakable look.” All collections are designed in OSKA’s creative heart in Munich, where the patterns and materials come to fruition. After that, their highly experienced and trusted partners in the Czech Republic wash and dye the garments. “With state of the art technology the clothing gets their unmistakable look. These partners also exclusively develop innovative dyeing and washing processes for us. This enables us to continuously surprise our customers with new fabric designs and structures.” The materials used for OSKA’s garments are exquisite as well. “We use high-quality materials like felted wool, pure linen, cotton,
hemp and silk,” says Twaalfhoven. “They have a pleasant feel, while also displaying a natural and authentic character.” OSKA consciously chooses to work with materials from European descent. It is clear that sustainability is important to the label, creating lasting garments being one of their goals. “The clothes keep their quality and will please our customers for many more seasons to come.” The fall/winter collection has already arrived at OSKA’s boutique in the Stokstraatkwartier in Maastricht. Twaalfhoven: “Expect a lot of wool in our collection, supplemented with accessories like hats and scarves, and professional assistance from our knowledgeable staff.” nl.oska.com
