Just in time for Spring, fashion designer Oscar de la Renta is launching his first in-house home collection. With the help of Home Creative Director Miles Redd, Mr. de la Renta has created a truly personal mix of table-top and entertaining accessories. Serving pieces are accompanied by recipes from Mr. de la Renta's kitchen and hand-painted plates are based on ones made by the designer himself on a long-ago trip to Japan. Die-hard de la Renta fans will be delighted with an ikat dot motif from the 1970s that shows up, reimagined and repurposed, on napkins, and with plates inspired by fabric in more recent ready-to-wear collections. Inspired by the lifestyle of his native Dominican Republic, the line incorporates sea-creature motifs and, in a classic ode to outdoor living, a color palette of blue and white. Here are a few of our favorites.
The Outnet just released its exclusive Oscar de la Renta capsule collection today, featuring a covetable array of chic pieces to help you kick off your Spring wardrobe refresh. The collection — fronted by one of our favorite style setters, Olivia Palermo — consist of 24 pieces, highlighting gorgeous floral- and ikat-print gowns, polished separates, and ladylike dresses crafted from fabrics from Oscar's past collections. Priced from $325 for a top to $1,295 for a silk faille gown, the lineup is much more affordable compared to the thousands of dollars the designer usually sells his gowns for. See and shop all of the pieces right here.
Some pairings just can't be beat, and this might just be one of them. Today, Feb. 24, The Outnet releases an exclusive capsule collection created by none other than Oscar de la Renta. The 24-item collection is comprised of pieces that are quintessentially Oscar — full-skirted dresses, pencil skirts, lace blouses, high-waisted trousers — and are made from the same fabrics, patterns, and factories as the brand's mainline. But the best part? They are all priced at a fraction of the cost; from $325 to $1,295 (for a gorgeous floor-length gown).

Herein, find Oscar de la Renta's Fall '13 collection and, of course, your answer to what a "collaboration" between the designer and John Galliano looks like. The latter designer's presence was certainly evident (and felt) in the suiting and coat tailoring, while de la Renta's signature femininity and ladylike wares took center stage with the bright, floor-skimming evening gowns at the end. But for your complete dose of Oscar de la Renta's beautiful workmanship, just press "play."
With John Galliano taking up residency in Oscar de la Renta's studio, the Fall 2013 collection finally answered the fashion world's burning question: what impact would Galliano have (if any) on ODLR? Presented tonight to a packed house that included fellow designers Diane von Furstenberg and Valentino, Oscar's lineup retained its femininity, romance, and underlying beauty most obviously in eveningwear, while it was clear that Galliano had his hand in the suiting and styling that opened the show. Our full review will be posted shortly; click through now for a glimpse of the collection.
The buzz surrounding Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2013 show was nearly palpable as guests — including Diane von Furstenberg, Mario Testino, and Valentino Garavani — settled into their seats at the label's show space on 42nd Street. And with good reason: not only does this year mark the incredible milestone of the designer's 50th year working in New York, but also, rumors had been flying all week that current de la Renta mentee John Galliano might come out postshow to take a bow. Sadly, Galliano was a no-show, but then again, maybe that's a good thing; the clothes that de la Renta sent down the runway were plenty news-worthy in their own right. Click through to see all the gorgeous pieces.
