LADY IN WAITING
New York: Oscar de la Renta presented a 50s fantasy for Resort, complete with peplum tops, A-line frocks, neat little bed jackets and costume jewels. Colorful embroideries were worked over black-and-white plaids on chic separates and day dresses. Exquisite hand-crocheted pieces such as a tunic in burgundy-and-ivory floral was seen worn over a slim skirt. Cocktail and evening dresses ranged from nipped waist, tea-length silhouettes in mesh tulle and chantilly lace to tafetta sheaths done in vivid colors, such as an apple-green silk faille style delicately embroidered with violet taffeta flowers.—Natalie Shukur
