New York…Oscar de la Renta

In a rich and luxurious take on the season, Mr de la Renta offered up 60 looks that will not disappoint his legions of ladies. Using mostly silk, satin and brocade, stand-out shapes included slim knee-length coats over similarly slender pants and sheath dresses, trim gowns for evening with plunging necklines and for day, a new shape for skirts, owing something in design to the ’80s bustle under cinched tops with peplums. Accessories were piled on (perhaps a little too much?) but his wide belt is sure to be a retail winner.
