For Oscar de la Renta, the challenge of a Pre-Fall 2014 collection is how ‘It encompasses all seasons.’ But regardless of this, Oscar tells WWD that ‘the most important thing is to make a woman look great.’ So the key here was variety + boy, did Oscar deliver.
There were day looks that celebrated the female form, in ladylike fashion, but with several modern touches. Silhouettes included different variations on the skirt suit including the pencil skirt suit, complete with a moto jacket + belted one in plaid, with a high slit, ready to get down to business.
Masculine touches appeared in the likes of a sleeveless trench coat, belted low, paired with matching palazzo pants as seen here in green. Oscar also played with texture including lace, gold brocades, perforated looks + embroidery, allowing the wearer to express sophistication with modern ease, mixed with timeless appeal.
Oscar’s ball gowns were their usual gorgeous selves full of color including the chartreuse-purple + chartreuse-burgundy combo + melted gold.
