Whoa – who would have guessed – Prime Haute Couture House, Oscar de la Renta, dabbling in denim! 😉
Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia booked a seventh-floor roof garden at Rockefeller Center in New York City for their Oscar de la Renta Resort 2017/2018 presentation.
The collection suited its environs, what with its palette of citrus-y orange and palm green and the tropical prints and jacquards found on day and evening dresses. Optimism is baked into the Oscar ethos.
Garcia said they thought the late designer would approve of the playful monkey who sipped champagne on the back of an embroidered jean jacket. The denim was a definite first chez de la Renta. If the couture-ish jean jackets seemed like a leap (indeed, a very playful one), the square-cut, full-legged jeans in a faded blue wash, or in white, were utterly in keeping with the brand’s signature silhouette.
