Show Review: Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014
By Vuitton

What influences John Galliano may or may not have had on last season’s de la Renta collection certainly didn’t surface for this season’s offerings (rumor has it he designed a few pieces–there has been no confirmation).  The bold makeup, slightly unkempt mane, opera gloves and silhouettes of de la Renta’s fall collection, reminiscent of Galliano during his time at Dior, gave way to a woman who’s remarkably fresh-faced, polished, and innocently romantic for Spring 2014′s assortment.

Separates dominated the first few looks in a darker palette than most would expect.  Navy jackets with widened lapels, tops, and pencil skirts with a dash of houndstooth made a surprise appearance on this season’s runway.  Nonetheless, they offered an air of sophistication and demureness, associated with what a de la Renta woman is known for.

But of course, the collection quickly took a turn toward the lighter end of the spectrum when a myriad of coquettish crochet pieces sauntered down the catwalk, echoing the romantic motif.

A bevy of ultra-feminine, silk party frocks in saccharine shades of lime, turquoise and peach rang true to de la Renta’s commitment of maintaining an upbeat outlook on spring, especially evidenced by a tiered, floral number he sent down the runway.

Formal wear was simply a sight to behold.  Floral printed gowns, tiered column dresses, and an effervescent abundance of tulle in confectionary colors were among some of the exquisite, red carpet ready moments I’m positive the likes of Kerry Washington, Zoe Saldana and Michelle Obama can’t wait to get their hands on.

Overall, despite the variegated color palette, de la Renta delivered, once again.  The transition from fall to spring has never been more ingeniously orchestrated: from the transitional coats in the beginning to gowns at the end.  But that only signifies that he has carefully thought about the woman he’s designing for all year round.  That, in itself, deserves to be lauded.

    In love with this collection. Classic Oscar de la Renta. Can’t wait to sell some of these pieces!!! And buy some of my own!!!

  4. Deedee says:

    I disagree with the transition from fall to spring-It doesn’t present as cohesive. The darker pieces present as heavy and matronly. It doesn’t seem like he is targeting the same woman. While I know his house has a chic sophistication…i’m not a fan of the first few pieces. After those few pieces…the collection is beautiful. I wish there were more black models. Those colors would really pop on women of color.–Alas

    The only time these designers choose black models to walk in their shows is when they are SUPERMODELS!

    Keep em’ coming Vuitton, awesome write ups on the shows

  7. lolani says:

    Im glad he used ANY black models some shows are white-washed….baby steps …I guess.

  8. LawyerLady says:

    I usually don’t love houndstooth prints – they can read too matronly. But it worked well here. Love the big, yet elegant earrings and the ropes of pearls. @Vuitton – excellent work. Thanks.

    Joan Smalls is everything!
