Under the new leadership of Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, the name of Oscar de la Renta rings on, at once revitalised and in line with tradition. Both classic pret-a-porter pieces and sleek, modern ready-to-wear bear a careful artistry that never forgets to put the customer at ease. The intricate designs remain true to the adage of de la Renta’s philosophy that fashion should only enhance the beauty of the wearer, not overshadow it.
Be it a romantic ballgown, ladylike heels, or opulent beaded earrings, every piece in the late Oscar de la Renta’s namesake collection has a sweeping, old-world elegance. It’s a look the designer’s been known for throughout his career—which started in fashion illustration before leading into couturier work in the 1960s—and one that his successor, Peter Copping, has worked to uphold. ODLR's signature sophistication isn't the collection's only draw, however—it's also defined by the wayone feels when wearing it: beautiful, glamorous, and, most importantly, like the best version of herself.
