oscar de la renta f/w 2013


From the moment the first model hit the runway at Oscar de la Renta - in a bell-shaped cloche pulled low over her eyes, a vibrant blue coat that looked like 1940s couture, and black leather gloves - I knew this was going to be a different sort of de la Renta show. Over the past few season's, his collections have been filled with a girlish sense of whimsy, but for fall there was a new sense of mystery and sophistication. Perhaps the enigmatic quality of this collection stems from de la Renta's new relationship with John Galliano. In January, de la Renta invited Galliano to join his studio as "designer in residence," the exact meaning of which is steeped in rumors. Whatever Galliano's role, or how much influence he had on this particular collection, the clothes on the fall de la Renta runway were gorgeous. From the jewel tone coats and the toile prints to the sexy rocker chick looks and the regal eveningwear, everything had a modern, sophisticated glamour that nodded to times past. This collection is a triumph. Watch the complete runway show below.
