2011 Fall New York Fashion Week: Oscar de la Renta
Bold, ethnic-inspired prints that meld seamlessly with refined silhouettes and tailored sheath dresses — it's how Oscar de la Renta sees the world this Fall. A meeting of striking patterns and patchwork on full-length coats and shorter jackets, then Oscar's laydylike pieces — a tweed skirt suit, a metallic pencil. Nearly every look gets a dose of Fall fur in a cozy snood or hat, adding luxury to the sophisticated looks. Through the streamlined silhouettes, the classic construction, there's the assurance that these Oscar pieces — like any of the designer's collections — won't lose their luxe after time; you could see yourself in that same metallic tweed coat running about town now, then years from now.
