Oscar de la Renta Fall 2015 Ready-to-Wear #NYFW

"Tonight was the night. Peter Copping, Oscar de la Renta's handpicked successor, made his runway debut/ the symbolism was potent. The brand's past and its future gathered together to witness the changing of the guard and to pass judgment. But the collection didn't feel overly reverent. Copping has watched enough revivals in Paris to know that the past can only take you so far. He infused the evening pieces with a certain youthfulness by using unlined lace for bodices, and working on new necklines. Some of the grander ball gowns could've used more fine-tuning. But if the fit on those numbers wasn't quite as finessed as longtime Oscar followers remember, Copping demonstrated his deft sense of colour - midnight blue and violet, chartreuse and bordeaux - and a special eye for detail. An ivory column with black embroidered flowers was exquisite, all the more so when it walked by and you got a look at the deep lace inset in back. There was a lot of poise in that gown. All things considered, this was a graceful start." -
