Oscar for Spring: NYFW Heats Up!

Oscar for Spring: NYFW Heats Up!I have been a bit absent here this week, as I have been reviewing New York Fashion Week runway shows. Although I try to watch as many as I can, I confess that I have my favorites. And, one has always been Oscar de la Renta. And, Oscar for Spring… oh my!

When designer Peter Copping left his post abruptly in July, like most, I wondered what NYFW would bring. But, I should not have worried! The Spring show is actually a truly amazing collaborative effort of the 13-member design team (who ALL made an appearance at the end of the show).

I felt that the group honored the classic elegance that originally made the Oscar de la Renta name a favorite with “the ladies who lunch.” But, each piece had enough a twist to make it feel thoroughly modern and wearable. Flattering silhouettes, opulent materials, and a sophisticated shades… I want it all!

Of course, you needn’t simply take my word for it. According to Vogue, “There’s no substitute for a distinct point of view, but the design team has a fine handle on the house Oscar-isms. They touched on many of them here: the knit skirt suit, the safari jacket, the peasant dress. Of course, there was also a full complement of cocktail frocks and evening dresses… this [show] had some charmers — a cayenne red strapless silk faille number with a ruffled hem, and a black dress liberally stitched with pearls that looked particularly Oscar-y, among them. With flat, sometimes bejeweled, sandals for accessories, the show had a breezy, youthful, not-too-serious tone.”

Above is one my top picks. But, there are so many other pieces I love, it was an impossible choice. To see the entire Oscar de la Renta show, watch below.
