Fall 2012: Oscar de la Renta

16 Feb



This collection felt…simpler than most de la Renta ones. That is not to say that by any means it was simple — just there was less poof (?) if you know. The silhouettes are much different from they have been at other times. He went through series’ in terms of color and theme. There was an element of drama in these pieces, not physical drama in their composition — there was a notable lack of drama in the cuts and originality of the pieces — but drama in the sense of presence. They were patterned and sheathed and a huge emphasis on tweed. He made sure to appeal to both of his markets in this collection — working the more austere and sophisticated tweed numbers aimed towards his elder market with fishnets and fabulous boots while working the mini skirts and more edgy pieces with elegant coats and more mature shoes. The ending numbers STUNNED me — my favorite was the fur jacket over the dress that looked as if it were literally chopped and mixed stripe by stripe by color and pattern — floral and aztec prints. The amazing fur and the way it was made of magical fringed pieces…that was gorgeous. I also loved the amazing bobs.
