Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012
Yesterday, I ended a gloomy, rainy work day in the best way imaginable--I went uptown for one of Oscar de la Renta's always-magical shows. This time, in a departure from his customary show venue at the Armory on Park Avenue, the designer held his resort viewing at the company's so-new-it's-still-raw space on the 25th floor of a Midtown building directly across the street from Bryant Park. As usual, it was absolutely beautiful and interesting, even more so because of the clear Picasso references (guitar-inspired hats, cut-and-paste graphics, newspaper prints, patchwork, et al). In fact, it inspired me to stop procrastinating and finally make plans to go see the new Picasso exhibit at Gagosian centered around the late artist's lover Marie-Therese (I'm going tonight).
All of my favorite looks are pictured above--how divine is that pink cap-sleeved gown? I just about died when it floated past me down the runway. All pictures from Vogue.com.
