oscar de la renta f/w 2012


The brilliant Oscar de la Renta will turn 80 this year, but that didn't stop him from creating one of the freshest, most youthful collections of New York Fashion Week. Girly and frothy with clever prints and styling, this collection was de la Renta for the digital generation - with plenty thrown in to keep Oscar lovers of all ages happy. The youth quake began when the first model hit the runway wearing a short skirt and fur-trimmed parka in a boldly graphic print featuring oversize crystal baubles. The print dominated the collection, appearing on everything from sugary pink and pastel blue to deep peacock, and was accompanied by a fantastic print of the facets of a gemstone as seen through the extreme close-up of a microscope. There were also plenty of real jewels in the show, accenting belts and collars or encrusting the sleeves of a pink sweater. Without sacrificing any of his trademark sophistication and luxury, de la Renta's latest collection is sure to capture the hearts - and pocketbooks - of a new generation of fashion lovers.
