With 40 years of experience in the fashion industry under his belt, Oscar de la Renta has earned his loyal following of clientele. No one does sophistication, elegance or color quite like Oscar and his pre-fall 2011 collection is proof.
A catwalk full of tweed skirt suits, nipped waists, florals, and billowing knee length hemlines sashayed down the runway. The designer has buried the term minimalism with the use of colors like scarlet and cactus green, and by ignoring the “three's the limit” accessory rule. Each piece shows his attention to detail and his immaculate craftsmanship. Whether it be ostrich feathers at the neckline or a fully beaded bodice, Oscar de la Renta is sure to make you the envy of every polished uptown type on 5th Avenue.
Shop the Look: Try your own runway version with a floral printed dress or blazer, accessorized with matching leather gloves and a silk scarf. Add pumps and tights for a ladylike look you can wear at the office. -Nicole Simone
