The RTW collection was like a dream that allowed me to live in the time of Audrey Hepburn, Doris Day and Lucile Ball. It was a collection of gowns that took me to a place where I was living the life of Eliza Doolittle in my Fair Lady. This old Hollywood glamour with a modern spark was absolutely breath taking.
As each gown came down the runway to the ambient music the models looked as though they were floating on clouds. It was fashion heaven. The silhouettes of each dress were classic, romantic and feminine. In a season when the trend seemed to be pants, edge and androgyny, this was a collection that was back to the basics of beauty.
The chic everyday, skirt suits and unique cocktail dresses were a reminder of an era where looking your absolute best was more than just your best jeans and unmarked shoes, but about a time when women looked as though they were ready for any event or occasion at any moment. Oh what it would be like to live in tweed suits and wonderfully shaped hats.
My favorite details were the floral prints that transcended art into a tangible bouquet of spring flowers. Each flower was so crisp it seemed to lift off the fabric adding to the realism of the collection.
There is nothing like the legend of Oscar de la Renta. This collection was effortless. Thank you for brilliant pure glamour.
