Ladylike Glamour at Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 RTW

With the passing of legendary designer, Oscar de la Renta back in October , many longtime devotees were wondering who was going to take over for the iconic talent. When it was announced that Peter Copping, former Nina Ricci Creative Director, would take the reins of the infamous brand; many were skeptical. After all, Oscar de la Renta was apart of a clique of designers whose aesthetic was as memorable as it is popular. But judging from the unveiling of the Fall 2015 RTW collection, which debuted on Tuesday during NYFW, it was apparent that Copping knows his s**t.

The collection stayed true to Oscar’s familiar aesthetic, while incorporating a few of Copping’s as well. The show opened with a chic black bouclé coat, with the pockets frosted with jet embroidery, and was paired with a flared skirt, and an ivory blouse; with a jewel neckline. Geometric prints were also apparent, as were graphic evening gowns and Edwardian blouses; an obvious nod towards the late designer. The color palette was moody and romantic, no doubt an homage to Copping’s iconic aesthetic. If anyone was worried before, they can rest assured now.

Oscar’s beloved brand appears to be in worthy hands and Copping himself has appeared to have lived up the hype. Phew, for a minute there I had to admit, I was pretty anxious.

I am a journalistic enthusiast, born and bred in Washington, D.C. When I'm not busy meticulously constructing posts, I can be found burying my head in an epic novel, cooking a delicious mess in the kitchen, scouring local thrift stores, and spending way too much time binging on Netflix (Arrested Development anyone?). I cannot live without a good playlist (Billy Holiday is preferred), working wifi (sometimes not always working), and Dunkin Donuts coffee (caramel swirl is my go-to flavor). If you have any questions or comments, please feel free to direct them to the email below. Happy Reading!
