Oscar De La Renta Cruise 2009 Collection Video

Oscar De La Renta Resort 2009 Collection Multimedia Report

The ladies who lunch had a wonderful excuse to be late to their reservations. Oscar De La Renta showed a 66 strong resort collection at 11am at what has become the house's traditional location on 63rd and Park.

With white cherry blossoms on white washed trees the setting was serene. A mix of almost autumnal ochre, cocoa and eggshell separates in cotton and wool silk made for a unique start for traditionally more brighter resort collections. The jaunty round brimmed riding caps that accompanied the first few looks were also surprisingly fetching and an accessory that was positively unexpected as we associate anything equestrian with colder weather collections. But of course Oscar doesn't leave his customers wanting. For women looking for a little more traditional fare corals, yellows, blues, pink, and bright emerald colors along with Caribbean prints are sure to please anyone looking to stand out.

We fell in love with a high waisted ivory silk pant that was part of a larger section that incorporated soothing white and black organza, silk, and lace pieces. The neutrals are an excellent way to enjoy the collection far beyond its expected season as they worked beautifully as basics for any season. We can see these pieces being extremely popular with pragmatic and high powered women executives who are certainly primed with disposable income and looking to incorporate fashion into office wear.

The most expressive pieces were undoubtedly the voluminous gowns that quite literally had a five foot radius thanks to puffy organza and tulle.

Accessories were a strong complement to the collection, no doubt in line with Oscar's amazing ability to combine commercial appeal and aesthetic acumen. We were particularly enamored of straw sandals and espadrilles, particularly flatter versions which felt like Tom's Shoes for a much fancier crowd. Bag fans will find the much loved Goya and Bombay bags in new materials and colors.
