Oscar de la Renta’s presentation showcased plenty of jewels for fall. Not jewel tones, but actual jewels.
The collection was dominated by jewels, with jewel prints and jewel accents giving the prints a 3D effect.
Each model wore a diamante-accented satin headband and some walked the runway with a bejewelled leather belt.
On a colour palette of sky blue, rose, teal and taupe that we don’t normally associate with fall, we saw the usual elegance we come to associate with Oscar de la Renta but with a surprisingly youthful twist.
We saw shorter hemlines, playful tutus, poufy skirts, cute shift dresses, caplets, chunky cable-knit cardigans and embellished tops paired with skinny pants, which would appeal to the likes of the Fanning sisters, Chloe Moretz and even Alexa Chung.
‘Ladies who lunch’ were treated to metallic tweed suits, cashmere turtlenecks, jacquard knit skirt suits and tweed sheath dresses.
For the red carpet, the gowns ranged from slinky crushed, pleated velvet and beaded column gowns to fairytale-like tulle draped gowns. These frothy creates also on my wish list for Oscar night and any other night. which both have a place on Oscar, and any night.
Key accessories included glittered ankle boots, bow-tie sandals, booties and teardrop-shaped pearl earrings.
