Oscar De La Renta Launches Pre-Fall 2021 Collection
The Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2021 collection looks forward with hope to joyful summer days. Optimism shines through every piece, with bold silhouettes, vivid color blocking, and refreshing prints.
Pristine hand crocheting adorns tops and dresses. A boxy and sharp rickrack group hints subtly at mid-century designs, translated into modern grids embroidered with sequins and stones and punctuated with zigzag hems. Taffeta reigns as the go-to for eveningwear, rendered in distinctly feminine, easy-to-wear caftans in saturated colors—perfectly suited to entertaining at home.
Long and fluid fringes lend texture and drama to simple monochromatic styles. Brilliantly hued flowers drawn from Oscar’s archival prints have been reimagined with hand-rendered dots and stripes, adorning dresses, gowns, and jumpsuits. His much-loved pineapples add a touch of playfulness and whimsy.
The enduring spirit and timeless creativity of Oscar de la Renta are reflected throughout the collection, inspiring new techniques and designs relevant to the way we live now.
