DOWN THE DIRECTIONAL PATH
New York: Oscar de la Renta’s Fall presentation was the result of a somewhat quiet collaboration with recently tarnished designer John Galliano, a creative meeting of the minds with a highly successful finish. What Galliano seemed to bring to the table was a certain cool factor, something usually missing at this traditional label, his hand evident in stripped down leather wrap jackets cinched with knotted crocodile belts as well as tall cloche hats that were thoroughly modern. Even toile prints looked hip, blown-up large across sheath dresses as well as quilted day suits. Of course, F/W 13 wasn’t a complete departure—plenty of ladies-who-lunch full a-line skirts and show-stopping evening gowns came down the runway, some festooned with modern mirrored florals or constructed from naughty sheer embroidered netting, choices that will lead Oscar de la Renta’s conservative customers down a refreshingly directional path next season.—Nina Stotler
