Words cannot quite describe how incredibly stunning Oscar de la Renta’s Spring 2014 NYFW runway show was. However, a few do come to mind: Breathtaking, exquisite, glamorous, dazzling — you get the point.
The collection, which was debuted to an ultra-exclusive crowd in Midtown, proved yet again that the 81-year-old designer knows a thing or two about dressing the ladies. In fact, in a statement given to The Daily Beast, Oscar said the new range was inspired by his love for women. “And I do the very best I can to make them fall in love with the clothes,” he said.
Well, consider us smitten.
The presentation began with ladylike separates such as sophisticated tea dresses, flirty flared skirts, structured sleeveless tops and sexy sheer blouses. As things progressed, elegant eveningwear took to the catwalk. Each gown was as enchanting as the next — column dresses with tiers for days, frocks with pearl trim and a signature ODLR number worn by Joan Smalls equipped with yellow silk faille, black tulle and intricate filigree embroidery.
The pieces boasted some regal flare, which would make sense as the line was also influenced by “two very famous portraits of Elizabethan ladies, the Fitton sisters,” that Oscar owns.
