OSCAR DE LA RENTA SPRING/SUMMER 2018
Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia chose Sotheby’s York Avenue galleries for their sophomore Oscar de la Renta show.
Their points of reference for Spring were Pop Art and a trove of letters Mr. De la Renta wrote, along with thank-you notes that the young designers have received from starlets like Emma Watson and Elle Fanning.
Motifs were quite literal, from the paint splatter–print button-downs and paintbrush-heel pumps to the signature prints on tailoring and huge block letters picked out in sequins on a strapless party dress.
The Oscar de la Renta evening gowns appeared in colorful dégradé tulle and a few more in black tulle lightly traced with silver sequins.L
