Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2013 RTW – New York Fashion Week

With gorgeous Karlie Kloss walking the runway in a red latex top matched with an elegant prim pencil skirt and a blazer, the opening of the Oscar de la Renta spring/summer 2013 fashion show at New York Fashion Week couldn’t have been better! Generally, latex was the star of the collection that added a fun and chic touch to the entire scene and never looked subversive. It showed up on a red pencil skirt too, as well as an emerald green tank and a pencil skirt that was paired with a hot pink silk faille jacket featuring black tassels. The models came out sporting edgy, laser-cut booties and their hair was styled into a nice do streaked with pink, yellow or blue. This doesn’t make Oscar de la Renta punk; the designer was just having a little fun with a super-pretty, elegant and feminine collection that stuck to the signature style of the fashion house.


The Oscar de la Renta spring/summer 2013 collection was flooded with classic waist-accentuating suits and day dresses featuring lace and ruffles in an eye-catching palette of black, red and yellow. For spring 2013, the Oscar de la Renta woman is bold and self-confident and isn’t afraid to come up with interesting, quite unexpected combinations, sexy cuts, latex and lace. The line includes pencil skirts, tops, jumpsuits, shorts and an array of party dresses. The entire color palette was into a fun mix of red, black, beige, yellow, fuchsia, turquoise, as well as softer hues, including pink and blue. Stripes, embroideries, flower appliqués, ruffles, feathers and metallic details have been used to make the designs more show-stopping.
Oscar de la Renta is one of the renowned designers, who know it perfectly well how to create luxurious and glamorous, but also wearable clothes. However, he admits that things have changed now and women have evolved. “Today, we deal with a very different woman,” he said in an interview with Harrods Magazine.
“I remember the old times, when we had customers who would buy from the house, season in, season out. Today there is little loyalty among consumers, because what is important for a woman today is the projection of her own individuality. Because I love women, I have always felt that my role as a designer is to keep my eyes open, and to understand women. It’s unbelievable what has happened in the world in the last 40 years, how women have evolved. My goal is to fulfill a woman’s dreams by making her look and feel her best. It’s great for us designers, because we have never dealt with a consumer who is so much in control of her own destiny as a woman is today.”
