Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012 Collection
A little fantasy to stir into your Monday morning coffee, darlings.
There’s always a sort of restrained elegance to Oscar de la Renta’s shows; an air of extreme sophistication and refinement, tempered by classic good taste and the lack of a need to be showy. And we’ve tried not to use this line too much this season, but you really do need to see those clothes in person to get the full effect, even though they look pretty amazing in pictures. This time the collection has a more youthful feeling with childlike pinks and blues and ribbons and pearls as embellishment, as if a little girl got into her mother’s closet to play dressup and managed an astonishingly good job of putting a look together. Which isn’t to say that the designs lack sophistication; quite the opposite, but there’s a youthful exuberance here; a salute to the idea that clothes can bring you as much joy as when you were that little girl standing in her mother’s giant shoes and dreaming.
