The Fall/Winter 2018 collection

Medieval reminiscences spring from Oscar de la Renta Fall-Winter 2018 collection.

The duo Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia are travelling back in time, when they visited the Met’s cloisters with Oscar de la Renta. They saw and heard a sound exhibition, yet what really caught the two designers attention were the museum’s Middle Ages and Elizabethan art pieces, that became the source of inspiration for the new lineup.

The maison archive is examined and brought back in life, mixed with Medieval references translated into a contemporary key, through the Oscar de la Renta language.

Raw materials are mixed with tulle, brocades, romantic prints, paillettes and embroideries. Quilted velvet is mixed with pearls in a Renaissance-referred look. Eye-catching details such as flare sleeves are tied with little bows, alongside evening outfits made in organza, bustier gowns with a wide skirt, enticing velvet and shimmering effects.

Raw canvases are flower-embroidered, referring to the old Medieval herbarium parchments; they are used for gowns, or to conceive overcoats that have a Medieval tunic minimalistic silhouette. Knits have voluminous soft components or off-the-shoulders shapes.
