Summer Arrives Early With anOnlyChild’s “It’s Getting Late” Collection
the collection defined by Jamaican influences and modern reimaginings
Now available on www.anonlychild.com, anOnlyChild’s latest collection is what nostalgic Summer nights are made of. Titled “It’s Getting Late,” the Spring-Summer 2023 collection embeds late-night conversations, unforgettable house parties, and warm summer breezes into its threads. Unveiled on April 4th in New York City, designer Maxwell Osborne brings forth a collection and campaign that not only builds on the label’s previous work, but is just as exciting as a budding Summer romance.
Inspired by the creative and boundless spirit of being an only child, anOnlyChild was conceived by Osborne in 2021. Photographed by Micaiah Carter and styled by Ron Burton III at Osborne’s family home in Mount Vernon, The Spring-Summer 2023 collection is a continuation of the brand’s “Welcome Home” collection. Incorporating an emphasis on Osborne’s Jamaican roots, both collections possess a fresh take on essential elements from the designer’s childhood.
Composed of drapy silks, delicate lace, and reimagined denim, “It’s Getting Late” is a love letter to the limitless nature of fabric. Drawing inspiration from vintage fashions seen in photographs around his childhood home, Osborne sought to modernize traditional silhouettes to reflect contemporary fashions, as well as his Jamaican heritage. Rich hues of red, green, and mustard permeate the silk selection. Meanwhile, deep earth tones and contrasting light shades harmonize beautifully throughout the rest of the collection.
From airy blouses to swaying skirts, movement is also a key feature of this collection. But this fluidity doesn’t stop in the motion of the garments. Rather, it also extends to the variety of shapes in the collection. Key silhouettes include puffy sleeves, complex layers, and oversized trousers. Also available In-store and online at Bergdorf Goodman and Saks Fifth Avenue New York, you don’t have to be an only child to dress like one.
