Luxury. That's the first adjective that comes to mind when describing de la Renta's work. His approach to design isn't necessarily innovative, yet he still has a way of WOWing me. He produces these luxurious pieces that brings out the chic and sophisticated in every woman.
One thing I love about Oscar de la Renta's runway shows is that he showcases models of all colors...unlike certain designers who still believe that "blonde hair and blue eyes are what women aspire to look like". I wish I had bookmarked the article I read so that I could actually quote the designer who said that.
So far my favorite Fall 2009 collection from all the runway shows I've looked at that took place in New York, Milan, and Paris is this one. Do you have a favorite?
