Oh New York Fashion Week is over. Although I wasn’t running around to the gobs and gobs of fashion shows all over Manhattan, I could feel the buzz all the way over here on the West Coast. Exciting! Right?
In the greater scheme of things, I wonder, why is fashion or design for that matter even really worthy of a comment? Am I making much ado about pretty things – clothes, furniture, accessories and more. The answer is probably yes. You might say, “Yes, Coco the design, style and fashion blogger spends way too much time gawking at things, style, places that she thinks are nice.” i would say that design and style are important because they are a form of individual expression. No two people express themselves through their style the exact same way I would argue. So, really, my examination of all things design is really an anthropological study…? Hmmm…. Stretching…I know… I digress. Excuse me as I try to justify the thousands of hours I have spent ooohing and aaahing and sharing the things I think are nice and celebrating those who have made style choices that I like.
Anyhoooo….back to NY Fashion Week. One one of those days last week, designer Peter Copping revealed the latest Winter 2016 clothing collection for Oscar de la Renta. I like the vibe and colors. I loved all of the shades of berry on display. Evening gowns, dresses, skirts, pants, sweaters in different shades of rosy pink. Girly pieces with some fantastic structure to them and a bit of classic playfulness. Who wouldn’t want to wear one of these lovely gowns to a black tie gala? Or the jaunty hot pink skirt, royal blue sweater and light blue fur like collar?
Love that even the designer himself has berry color socks on as he takes his bow on the runway.
A collection to look forward to in the Fall most definitely!
P.S. Do you like this Oscar de la Renta Fall/Winter collection? Too much color or just right?
