Oscar de la Renta loves his themes, and this season it was all about the uptown nomad, clad in Beukhara embroidered Ottoman jackets, Chintamani patchwork, and Moroccan Beni embroidered melton wool.
These were all ideas taken from Eastern and Middle Eastern culture, brought to de la Renta's customer with silver fox fur, velvet shoes, and ivory alpaca. It was a seamless collection that will work as well for the ladies who lunch as it will the red carpet ingenues.
Biggest news: Kate Young, Natalie Portman's stylist, sat front row.... Could this mean an Oscar for Natalie? (Pun intended, obviously.)
