Oscar de la Renta at New York Fashion Week
The elegance that once filled the runways of the Oscar De La Renta show is no longer. The glamour now comes in the form of drama and sex appeal: high slits, low v-necks, fringes, feathers and soft forms.
For the ready to wear day look, Moroccan silhouettes and vivid colours are reflected in sarong –style wraps, pyjama co-ords and languid lines. Patchwork scarf prints blended with warm neutrals create a story of exotic travel, especially through the movement of these beautiful pieces.
The evening pieces are far less formal than they once were. From structured skirts-suits and fit-flare dresses, Oscar De La Renta has turned towards dressing the real woman. A feminine line, natural beauty and confident, who doesn’t need a man to feel sexy.
Ball gowns are no longer, instead they are replaced with flattering separates – cascading feather bustiers, wide leg trousers, fringed jackets and asymmetric tops.
A gorgeous feather skirt, was spotted being teamed with a structured strapless bustier. A feather coat, worn to give the illusion of feather cuffs. Then to top it off a flowing A-line gown with feathered detailing at the top, falling down the side of the dress, providing a dramatic and sexy combination.
What we just adore about this new collection is the perfect balance of structure and softness each look encompasses. The added detailing of feather and fringe, create character and movement, flattering the female body.
