Oscar de la Renta
Oscar de la Renta
Checks, fine vertical stripes, floral, lace. Royal blues, white, black, yellow, red, emerald, tangerine, gold, grey and baby pink: These are the eye catching details and colours which contribute to creating the spectacular Resort 2013 collection at Oscar de la Renta. Maybe it's this little bout of sunshine that Glasgow seems to be having right now, but this makes two Resort collections which I have blogged about. Can it be that I might take some interest in more Resort wonders for SS'2013? Possibly. Well, if others are as gorgeous as the Chanel and ODLR collections at least.
Classic, monochromatic looks in a pattern that can only be described as: a floral print made up of lots and lots of 'C's. The print was shown through accessories such as shoes and in the clothes shown. High waisted flare trousers, knee-length pencil skirts and cap sleeve tops: some with deep V necklines and added peplum waists. One long sleeved top featured nude material behind it to give the pattern a mesh-like appearance. This look was teamed with a ruffled, layered black skirt and royal blue obi tie belt, finished with chandelier earrings and the same patterned black heels. It gave the classic and elegant ODLR woman a new twist to her regular every day wardrobe.
Lace featured heavily in some of the looks. For example, a cobalt blue silk blouse and pencil skirt formed the base, with a black lace cardigan and skirt layer on top. There were also blue lace dresses with scalloped edges and even a dress made from layers of ruffled blue lace.
Belted waists were a given with the collection and helped create balance throughout the various patterned fabrics and colours.
The finale dresses? Well, those were TDF! I had to pick my jaw back up from the ground after I first laid eyes on some of them. I won't talk in detail about them all, so let's focus on the three shown below. First we have the gorgeous, fish tale emerald green beauty. Featuring a stunning floor length gown in emerald green satin. peplum waist detailing and a constructed, origami bust. It immediately catches your attention and keeps you staring at it for hours. Tight fitting at the top but then flows into a balanced fish tale at the bottom. Che bella! Second we have the tangerine dream in in the middle. A-symmetrical with a belted waist and sexy, cross over, thigh-high slit. I can almost see Beyonce wearing it now at her next red carpet event. Last, but certainly not least, we have the gothic, black lace number to the right. Layers of sheer fabric add texture to this other wise body con, floor length gown. The reason I like it so much? It's effortless elegance with edge. Who would I put in this dress? Charliz Theron probably. She has the killer body and looks required to carry this sort of look off.
What do you think about the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2013 collection? Have any of the pieces sparked particular interest for you?
