Since 2003, Osklen Metsavaht has presented his collections at Sao Paulo Fashion Week, the biggest fashion event in Latin America so we thought you should know about him if you don’t already. Considered one of the ten most influential and inspiring brands in the world by WGSN and identified as “Future Maker” by the WWF-UKOsklen, Osklen is a casual-chic contemporary women and men’s lifestyle clothing line merging cosmopolitan with the vitalityof Brazilian nature where urban and nature, global and local, organic and technological live together. Fashion, art, culture, design, and the environment inspired Metsavaht to create not only a brand, but a a lifestyle. Therefore, in his stores and franchises in Brazil, Europe, the United States, and Japan, snowboards lay next to golf clubs and art books next to objects brought back from his expeditions. Indeed, the brand is known for its special finishes, exclusivity and sophisticated sustainable materials for which Metsavaht scours the Amazon forest.
Metsavaht and his creative team have been champions of social-environmental issues since the nineties. In addition to Creative Director of Osklen, Metsavaht is the founder of instituto e, a not-for-profit institution located in Rio de Janeiro, dedicated to the promotion of sustainable human development with fabrics and materials developed from social-environmental criteria.
