Oscar de la Renta
December 11, 2017 - shirtdresses
Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim staged their Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall display during a Picnic House during Pier 40 final Thursday. It was a sprightly though balmy morning, and a Hudson and a skyscrapers on possibly side of it glimmered. The plcae was selected privately for a collection they designed. Garcia pronounced they were meditative about a season, 6 months in a future, when these garments will arrive in stores: summer during a seaside. Seagulls flocked, as a imitation on a shirtdress, as elaboration on a peplum tunic, and as intarsia on a mink coat. And fish (or rather fish bones) schooled, initial as shoulder-duster earrings and after as a vast laser-cut leather appliqué on a tulle gown. A small of this will go a prolonged way—nautical miles—but there were subtler interpretations of a theme, like a postcard-print cowl-back blouse and relating spiral-seamed skirt, as good as “fishnet” sweaters, that will be easier for a landlubbers in a throng to embrace.
Better were a pieces that bypassed a thesis altogether. Garcia and Kim have shown themselves to be utterly accessible with shirting during their other label, Monse. Here, they gave it an Oscar flair, slicing a shirts in starchy white poplin and adding thespian cuffs. A black nap crepe dress with pearls festooned on a three-quarter sleeves was flattering faultless, as was a slim cloak twin. The other outerwear here was grand in a approach that Mr. De la Renta competence have recognized, nonetheless modern, too. A reversible ivory shearling would’ve been only a thing for a cold outing from a post behind to a office.
