REMEMBERING 
OSCAR DE LA RENTA 

 

Oscar de la Renta
Once in a very rare while, a man comes along who is such a special, elegant, charming, thoughtful, talented and, oh yes, exceedingly handsome gentleman that you are totally captivated and entranced forever.
Outrageous Oscar!
Available at Classic Collections
 What more can be said of this marvelous designer who was loved by so many women and admired by people from all over the globe?  Mr. de la Renta, a pillar of the international fashion community, was  an original and creative genius in the world of fashion.   When he left us last month at the age of 82, a major void was created in the realm of sophisticated fashion . 
Amazing Runway Brocade Extravaganza!

 

He dressed several First Ladies (from Jackie to Michelle), fashion icons, brides, Hollywood stars, couture junkies and women who craved his original and sophisticated styles.  Famous for the quote "You carry the clothes; the clothes don't carry you", Mr. de la Renta rode through the decades with ever different styles, periods, fabrics, themes (serious, classic or fun and zany) and was much beloved.   

Fabulous Cashmere Jacket
With Yarn Fringe!

 One of 7 children,  Mr. de la Renta was born in the Dominican Republic and moved to Spain at 18 to go to school.  His love of fashion led him to an apprenticeship with Balenciaga and he then moved to Paris and worked with the House of Lavin.  Deciding to finally come to the United States, he was a designer with Elizabeth Arden and in 1965 he opened his own business with the birth of Oscar de la Renta Couture.

 

Eyewear by Oscar!

 

 

Over the decades Mr. de la Renta added perfume, home design boutiques, in the US and abroad, and authorized licenses for dozens of products.  Without a doubt, this handsome, elegant, true gentleman will be missed!
