collection images: oscar de la renta, cruise

by Jeremy Danté

always a collection that i look forward to seeing, i always anticpate the oscar de la renta collection regardless of the season. a lot of collection design concepts & styling remind me of the cruise collection we seen from jason wu. we see similar silhouettes & those same straw top hats- de la renta does prints with extreme ease & elegance. i really admire the fact that de la renta’s designs are able to transcend age limitations; though classic each look is given the right amount of youth with the right amount of maturity. classic use of tweed is complimented by classic form & silhouette while prints add that extra boost of modernization in design. as the collection progressed bright reds appeared alongside more printed dresses & the collection progressed to a set of neutral looks with belted waists. those looks slowly transformed into looks with more texture & soon sheer textiles were seen as the collection drew to a close with a range of gowns in green, orange, as well as lace & print. a wonderful collection filled with a reinvention of established classics. always a job well done for the de la renta design team- always inspiring.
