Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015
For his debut collection at the house of Oscar de la Renta, Peter Coppingpromised to be “very respectful, to be true to Oscar’s legacy. At the same time,” Copping added, “fashion moves quickly, so you have to state your intentions from the word go. It couldn’t just be an homage.”
Embellished floral-appliquéd tulle and silk-organza strapless gown
A stunning piece from Oscar de la Renta's Fall '15 runway, this floor-sweeping gown has been impeccably crafted in the USA from violet silk-organza overlaid with wispy dark-purple tulle. It's embellished with lustrous silk-satin floral appliqués, tiny beads and shimmering sequins - all designed to beautifully catch and reflect the light. The internal bustier and boning sculpt and support your figure, while layers of mesh under the skirt create dramatic volume.
Floral-appliquéd silk-crepe gown
Inspired by Truman Capote’s legendary 1966 Black and White Ball, this ivory crepe column gown stands out with exquisitely embroidered black blooms. Full of poise, this floor-sweeping silhouette showcases 200 hours of expert craftsmanship: Lace appliquéd flowers are highlighted with hand-embroidered silk organza petals to create a dimensional effect and then embellished with jet paillettes for shine. Inset with black open flower macramé lace, a deep scoop back delivers an unexpected sensual touch to the long-sleeve dress.
Silk duchessina color-block gown with bow & back cutout
A key look from both our fall runway and advertising campaign, our floor-sweeping, color-block gown is defined by contrast jewel tones and rendered in sumptuous silk. Featuring a striking sweetheart neckline and elegant ruching, the dark navy bodice shines with a back cutout and an undulating velvet bow that trails behind the hyacinth skirt.
Velvet bow & sequin embroidered lace gown
A red carpet favorite, this navy and black embellished gown continues to make an unforgettable statement ever since its runway debut. Rich velvet bows highlight the square high neck and elegantly enhance the bust and waist, while vertical velvet piping draws the eye down to the glamorous skirt and elongates the silhouette. Sequins are hand-sewn onto the abstract netted guipure bodice, while open flower macramé lace is hand-cut and expertly appliquéd onto the base to create a cascading floor-length skirt.
Rose chantilly lace embroidered silk faille gown
Inspired by Truman Capote’s legendary 1966 Black and White Ball, this spectacular gown blooms with large-scale black roses set against a white silk faille backdrop. The strapless A-line gown illustrates 300 hours of expert craftsmanship: First, lace is appliquéd along the floral pattern; next, flower petals are embellished with layers of silk organza for dimension and hand-embroidered in place; finally, these motifs are finished with jet paillettes and stones.
Radzmir & Duchess satin strapless cocktail dress
Tapping into the ’60s glamour of Truman Capote’s legendary Black and White Ball, creative director Peter Copping infuses a seductive spin into our color-blocked cocktail dress. The final look from our fall runway show, this black and peridot design ripples with visual intrigue, thanks to a sensual back cutout, avant-garde sweetheart neckline, and gathered bubble skirt made of lustrous silk.
