Oscar de la Renta S/S 2013

Oscar de la Renta's highly anticipated S/S 2013 collection has hit the NYC runway.



Admittedly, when I saw the first few outfits, I wasn't sure whether I would see the same works of art this designer can produce time after time, it worried me slightly. However, the show definitely reached its peak during the mid-point and onwards.

At the begining, we saw many workplace looks as pencil skirts and suits were apparent and I must say, I was particularly taken by the white blazer and trouser with a plunging neckline.



The theme of crochet lace was evident afterwards with its appearance on jackets and tops paired with pencil skirts. As we saw this, the colours popped out of nowhere, lots of yellows and bright pinks, very summery.





Romantic and elegant are words that came to mind by this point of the show.

We saw flashes of statement jewellery with large, black floral necklaces and earrings.



Then, I saw Oscar de la Renta shine as it should. We saw pastel blue dresses with crystal bow belts that screamed "girly" and a gorgeous jacket with fabric roses all over combined with a structured skirt.




I couldn't take my eyes off the black gown which glittered down the runway as the detail on it was exquisite.



Then we had the shimmering silver tops and skirts accentuated with a metallic waist-cinching belt and a small clutch.



The strapless, floor-length dress was probably one of the best looks of the night, in my opinion, the look is simple, the belt is simple but it's SO elegant and it would make anyone look like a million dollars with the way the dress trailed off at the back.



In hot pink and baby pink, I loved these two playsuits, especially the peplum detail on the pastel pink one.



Overall, I think de la Renta did a wonderful job with this collection. The colour scheme worked nicely together, the looks were sophisticated, sexy and elegant, and you weren't able to undermine the femininity of the looks which show off the female figure.
