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 runway—showing 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 taffeta—perfect for a sexy evening out on the town. Of course, de la Renta's presentation could not be complete without dazzling evening wear—feather dresses, voluminous faille ball skirts worn casually with a sweater and iridescent paillette gowns, which closed the show with a big bang.
