This New York Fashion Week, Oscar de la Renta pulled out all the stops for their F/W 2016 Collection. This collection was sophisticated, feminine, and chic, just as Oscar’s brand has always been known for. Not only did this collection stay true to the brand, but was also a beautiful combination of both modern and historical elegance. It is always incredible when designers embrace the future, whilst also honoring the past. Fur collars and vests, sheer tops, lustrous gowns, waist-hugging skirts, strategically placed lace, ruffles galore, and coats Jackie O would die over, are all included in this diverse collection. Let us all take a second to praise Oscar’s successor, Peter Copping, for never failing to capture all of the incredible qualities that Oscar himself brought to life during his time on Earth. Another intriguing quality about this collection, is that Peter’s main inspiration stems from The Battle of Versailles in 1973. Oscar de la Renta was one of five American designers to go up against other prestigious Parisian counterparts, at this event that changed fashion forever. According to Vogue, the innovations and risks taken at the Versailles battle, helped Peter with his inspiration to “juxtapose high-tech sportif fabrics with 18th-century-inspired ones.”
Below is a peak into this incredible array of fashion brilliance. ENJOY:
