Welcome to the simple, romantic and magical life of Oscar de la Renta and his 10 helpers (studio team designers). I’m Mademoiselle M and I will be your host.
Held at the Morgan Library in New York, the collection was very beautiful. First it started with few clean white peasant dresses, which for me are epitome of warmer days. Then we were shown more bold designs and colors, black and strong red dresses, and the classic Oscar de la Renta safari jacket and pants.
After them, on the runway walked few oriental princesses, who by the way, were the only models from the collection who wore earrings. Well, they are royalty after all. The dresses, crop tops and pants were amazing, each more beautiful and exotic than the previous.
I’m a minimalist at heart and I fell in love with a marvelous plain white dress. When the model walked in it, I was simply amazed. So gentle, yet so strong. Very Oscar de la Renta.
For the closure we saw cocktail and evening dresses. Lots of sparkles, feathers, little pearls, pleaded skirts and puffy shoulders.

The footwear from the collection was very pretty and comfortable. Bejeweled open toe and flip flop flat sandals. The best footwear for those spring and summer hot days.
The team of designers have done a splendid job. I’m sure Mr. Oscar de la Renta would have been very proud of you for keeping his fashion house and his legacy. Thank you for the beautiful collection.
