It was an easy-to-wear collection for Oscar de la Renta, who managed to turn out very relaxed pieces without forgoing his traditional feeling of luxury. Cashmere ruled the runwayshowing up on colorful striped skirts, sweaters and knit cardigans. Brick, burgundy and navy coats and jackets were lavishly embroidered. There were also striking black ensembles in leather, suede and taffetaperfect for a sexy evening out on the town. Of course, de la Renta's presentation could not be complete without dazzling evening wearfeather dresses, voluminous faille ball skirts worn casually with a sweater and iridescent paillette gowns, which closed the show with a big bang.
