Runway Review: Oscar De La Renta Spring 2016

Peter Copping is currently at the helm of the fashion house, Oscar de la Renta. Taking over for such an eponymous designer and historic brand is not an easy task, but Copping is more than up to the task. His recent Spring 2016 collection was inspired by the romance and danger of Spanish matadors. Copping took color inspiration from Oscar himself by centering his collection on a beautiful shade of dark carnation red that Oscar favors. One of the most memorable collection for the Spring 2016 Fashion Week, I loved how this season the brand really embraced its signature sensual femininity.

Here are my personal picks for the most memorable runway looks for Oscar de la Renta Spring 2016:

Capes are going strong this season. You can clearly see the matador inspiration here. Consider capes your go-to spring outerwear.

Lace + carnation print + ruffles + the perfect shade of vibrant red = STUNNING.

For women who love black, this is an amazing, modern yet totally romantic way to get more color into your wardrobe. A bold red hue peeking underneath a sheer black dress with beautiful pleating details is simply sophisticated.

A more fashion forward alternative to the trendy slip dress, I love that this dress has the right amount of sheerness. Take note of the floral applique on the pumps too! How elegant!

Espadrilles are the quintessential summer shoe, and I love how they styled the runway ensembles around this typically casual shoe. These espadrilles are another indication of the Spanish influence in the collection.

Hunter Green moves into spring with this flirty halter neck eyelet dress. Bring out those cabochon statement earrings for daytime, and style it just like this runway look. So chic!

The tiered ruffles and the painterly appeal of the carnation print make this dress a standout. The lace and ruffled collar neck give it a Victorian feel.

This seafoam green turquoise color hybrid is one of the brighter hues in this collection. It really stands out from the predominantly red and black pieces. I also love how the sweater is belted at the waist and paired with a shimmery skirt. Office style inspiration, for sure.

Mustard yellow lace? Yes, please. This is such a refreshing and dramatic take on the summer lace dress.

A multi-color pom pom sweater worn over a slinky peek-a-boo lace dress? I can totally see the Olsens or Miley in this look. Sexy and feminine yet still so cutting edge.


And now we come to the forte of the Oscar de la Renta fashion house, EVENING WEAR. Is there anyone better than Oscar de la Renta when it comes to glamour that is equal parts show-stopping and jaw-dropping in its elegance? Nobody does it better than de la Renta. Even Carrie Bradshaw knows that. For some serious evening gown inspiration, or envy, take a look at my picks below. Watch out for these beautiful frocks in the coming months, I am so sure that Hollywood celebrities and style stars will be lining up to wear these.

Which de la Renta look did you love? I absolutely fell head over heels for the last look! The off-shoulder detail and the glove-looking sleeve is TO DIE FOR.
