Oscar de la Renta Spring 2014

Sep 10 2013 - 5:27pm

Oscar de la Renta [1]'s clothes are far too beautiful to ever be reduced to simple themes, but his Spring 2014 collection — filled as it was with his glamourous, colorful clothing [2] — took a little inspiration from the Elizabethan era.

The designer told WWD that a portrait he owns [3] of two noblewomen named Anne and Mary Fitton was in the back of his mind when he designed this collection. It wasn't the most obvious starting point for a collection that featured floral, polka-dotted A-line dresses and more circle skirts than you could shake a stick at, but you get the feeling that a Queen Elizabeth I wouldn't have said no to the lace collars and ruffs, elaborate embroideries, and the copious strands of pearls that came down the runway.
