Oskar Metsavaht Ipanema:
“In the attempt to freeze the elements of style that permeates every collection I design for Osklen, I constantly photograph things that surround my aesthetics beliefs. These images must be beautiful portraits of what I wish to create, what I wish to transmit through fashion and design. They are the result and also the source of my inspiration. This series of my photographs from Ipanema are the opportunity to share the moment before they become decodified to design, to fashion, they’re my moment of pure art” says Oskar Metsavaht, Creative Director of Osklen.
