Runway Recap: Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2012


Oscar de la Renta presented a very smart pre fall collection inspired by chic 70s patterns and silhouettes. Think Upper East Side sophistication with a hint of Russian bourgeois influence.

Top Trends

Oscar de la Renta has breathed new life into the plain old skirt suit with adorable patterns and chic silhouettes. Solid coloured wide legged trousers teamed with alluring jackets ooze of sophistication and will be seen in inner city offices and fancy dinner parties any moment now.


Extravagant jewels and gold detailing made the accessories really special in this collection. Traditional loafers were revamped into cute, colorful heels which were even more eye catching when worn with dotted tights.

Favorite Looks

The green and blue floral dress was an outstanding piece within the collection and the monochrome, polka dot skirt suit complete with a cloche cap was too charming to forget.


Oscar de la Renta delivered a breathtaking pre fall collection that took traditional, chic style to another level. The entire collection displays feminine daywear that translates into city girl chic for the evening.
