Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready-To-Wear: Oscar de la Renta Women Collection

//Autumn/Winter 2015 Ready-To-Wear: Oscar de la Renta Women Collection

Oh it’s Oscar darlings where do we start!

Oscar de la Renta was a creator, master and designer. His flawless designs have become some of the most iconic gowns of all time, just look at Sarah Jessica Parker’s 2014 Met Gala monochrome or Amal Clooney’s wedding dress! This fashion house thrives in magnificence and beauty with high society being at its very finest. Oscar had a love for women. He encouraged them to be confident, dominant and powerful because after all you should,

‘walk like there’s three men walking behind you’.

Shortly after he announced his retirement, Peter Copping became creative director for this fashion house. Weeks later we suffered that heart wrenching news that Oscar de la Renta, my favourite designer of all time, had passed away. The fashion world still mourns this amazing man and exceptional designer; it’s hard to believe he has gone.

When it came to the AW15 runway show we were unsure what to expect. Of course we were aware of a new creative designer, but could Nina Ricci’s Peter Copping continue Oscars legacy? Well he did. The AW15 collection was everything we could have dreamed of and so much more. No inch of material was left unattended, the colours were fabulous and the models killed it. Karlie Kloss, who has walked the Oscar show since the age of 16, was found in the front row admiring what Oscar had left behind. We have never been more grateful to have this fashion house in our lives. I am still as obsessed with Oscar de la Renta now, if not more.

Power players

Oscar de la Renta

Remember that powerful woman we discussed? You are looking at her. The Oscar de la Renta runway exposed us to the best work wear we could ever ask for. These looks are so chic and so Jackie O, because after all darlings you want all eyes on you. I adore the feather trim on the third look and the street style vibes we receive from the cropped jacket in look four. The gorgeous cuts leave us speechless and an array of colour combinations paired with a collection of delightful understated prints are exceptional. These girls are ready to kill it. Even if it’s all work and no play, I know what I would like to be wearing.


Skirts galore

The above the knee skirt is back. Too long has it been all about midis and maxis, it is time to show off your fabulous pins darlings. What I adore most about these amazing skirts are their dynamic. Prints work with prints and singular patterns compliment block colours. These are sophisticated and sleek for the A/W season when it is all too tempting to wrap up warm and stray from killer street style. These are a must.

Classic Oscar high society

Who is the fairest of them all? Those who wear Oscar of course. These pieces are fantastical and fairy tale like. The colours are delicious and appealing to the eye. Oscar is well known for his diverse spectrum of creativity and experimentation with the unconventional. We could not be more pleased to see Peter Copping also experimenting with show stopping skirts and breathtaking necklines. This is one runway where beauty looks can be kept at a bare minimum. Oscar de la Renta only works to succeed and this notion continues through his legacy.


Sassy and sweet

Sometimes when you are feeling a little carefree and feisty, a cocktail dress is all you need. Now I don’t mean the cocktail dresses you find on the high street that age you by forty years, instead we are talking ravishing and radiant. Cocktail dresses are often boring and lack in character but as we know this could never be the case for this designer. These pieces are flirtatious and elegant. Remember when Anne Hathaway ran around Pariee in her cocktail gown and coat in the Devil Wear Prada? This vision makes these pieces all even more dreamy. These piece maybe simple but they are far from boring.

As you have seen darlings Oscar and Peter Copping go hand in hand, they only bring perfection. This runway show was one of the most anticipated ones of all time. There was a degree of sadness as we still find it hard to believe this wonderful designer has gone however here we have a collection that would make him proud. Oscar believed in women, and women believed in Oscar.

‘My role as a designer is to make a women feel her very best’
