New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: Oscar de la Renta


This collection was a bit of traditional Oscar de la Renta - with poofy, dramatic dresses and full-of-sheen separates - fused with a more modern, androgynous Oscar. There's no doubt that the designer stuck with the overarching Spring theme of femininity, but he stayed away from flowy and went the structure route.

There were dramatic necklines, long red carpet gowns, bows, ruffles, floral patterns, pleats, metallics, pantsuits, shift dresses, skirt suits with cropped jackets, tuxedo-style frocks, bubble silhouettes and lantern sleeves. Whew! There's was a lot of everything.

It's obvious that Oscar tried to appeal to many types of women: the minimalist, the flamboyant and the eccentric. Many tribal-inspired dresses in black, brown and white were shown - for those who like to explore the wild side of fashion.
