We saw a lot of icy blues and pale pinks that populated Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2012 collection. There were full-skirted ballerina dresses and voluminous ball gowns, the pastel hues were everywhere! Other than pastels, de la Renta’s main focus this season was embellishment . The embellishments came in every shape and style. Glittering stones were worked onto the sleeves of cashmere cardigans, fox fur lined the hems of pants, and lace dressed collars. Even the models’ headbands, belts, and shoes were done up in an eye-popping array of jewels.
“I used a lot of colors you would not associate with Winter colors, but today’s woman doesn’t dress for seasons,” – Oscar de la Renta
