Oscar de la Renta is still in the league and this spring and summer season shows it. The show opened with Karlie Kloss in a shiny red latex top paired with a slim pencil skirt and a blazer. This gave a taste of what the collection will be about. Chic with an edge that demands the attention by everyone to notice the woman. This showed again on a slick emerald green tank and pencil skirt under a hot pink silk faille jackert embroidered with black tassels. The models hair were swept in messy beehives that were streaked with pink, yellow, and blue. De la Renta was having fun and showed that he can still design beautiful collections and grand ones at that.
After dark, a pair of party dresses in feather embroidered tulle were especially memorable. A black ball gown that was slightly short in the front with embroidered beading on the bodice was grand and a striped number made a mark of a fun, simple touch to evening dressing. Shocking pink and green faired well in the line up of the evening section of the collection.
This collection made an impression that an influential French editor was heard saying "J'adore Oscar". Oscar de la Renta is a class act and is one of the remaining true masters of fashion and always comes up with marvelous clothes that are of class and modern with a couture touch. What a delight.
