Chic Normandy Retreat

08 . 05 . 15

While Peter Copping and his husband Rambert Rigaud sold their Paris apartment when Peter was appointed the artistic director of Oscar de la Renta in New York, they weren’t going to give up their Normandy retreat. You can see why from the new photos they’ve posted on Instagram. You may remember that I posted some photos from […]

Remembering Oscar

10 . 21 . 14

Every single person who commented on the passing of  Oscar de la Renta described him as a true gentleman. Perhaps this was due to his early training from Cristóbal Balenciaga and at Lanvin in Paris or his years heading Balmain. He was one of the last greats from a different time but he never forgot where he came from […]

“Fashion is about dressing according to what’s fashionable. Style is more about being yourself.” – Oscar de la Renta (July 22, 1932 – October 20, 2014)   

Peter’s Pictures

10 . 14 . 14

My first thought when I heard that the English fashion designer Peter Copping was named the new creative director of Oscar de la Renta was, I wonder what will happen to his amazing Instagram account.  My second thought was whether he’ll have to change his Instagram from @peterricci.  Peter has been based in Paris as the […]

Pretty on Pinterest

As much as I love attending runway shows, you often miss the details when the models are wafting past you and the person in front of you is taking pics on their ginormous iPad.  So it was lovely to see Oscar de la Renta post a multitude of detail photos of the clothing and accessories from their Spring 2015 […]

Long time readers will remember my aversion to pink.  Well, this awful winter has left even me longing for the cheerful affect of a little color. I actually fell in love with a pink jacket from J.Crew when I saw it at their presentation last year.  It turned out to be a very expensive Collection […]

A little tidbit in WWD caught my attention last week.  It announced that Carolina Irving had just been named creative director of home for Oscar de la Renta. Carolina will oversee the in-house home collection as well as those for Lee Jofa, Century Furniture, and Elson & Company. She will replace former creative director Miles […]

I really need to stop scheduling flights on award show nights.  I missed the red carpet for the 2014 Golden Globes to my delayed Jet Blue flight back from the Dominican Republic but I luckily made it home for the show. I’m glad I did too because everyone looked amazing.  These are just some of […]

I had the pleasure of attending an intimate dinner last week to celebrate the collaboration between everyone’s favorite online stationer, Paperless Post, and Oscar de la Renta. The twist being that now you can purchase physical stationery and invitations to be mailed at the post office and not just via email. The resulting pieces take […]

Stripe it Rich

02 . 05 . 13

Now that the Fall 2013 shows are almost upon us, I wonder what will prevail as a predominant theme.  For Spring 2013, it was lots of black and white and stripes.  I actually started a black and white stripes folder of images but never used them. It the perfect jumping off point for this post […]

I’m still away but I’m leaving you with another look at Oscar de la Renta’s fabulous home in Punta Cana.  I found some new photos via Vogue and have included new garden photos from Architectural Digest.  Enjoy! Photos by Francois Halard for Vogue and via AD

Only Oscar de la Renta would get me to 42nd Street on a rainy Monday night.  At first, I missed his old venue at the church on Park Avenue a few blocks from my apartment, but there was a great juxtaposition to the raw runway space and the gorgeous clothes.  It is the future home of the […]

I figured why not continue on with warm weather and turquoise blue water.  It’s the only thing getting me through these cold and snowy days.  I posted photos of Oscar de la Renta‘s Punta Cana home in the Dominican Republic over a year ago here.  Since then, he’s done a little redecorating and I’ve found […]

Bohemian Chic

12 . 07 . 10

I forgot to mention in my last post that Oscar de la Renta has a Tumblr account.  Well, it actually belongs to the Oscar PR Girl and she will be posting behind the scenes photos of the atelier and more.  One of the photos on there now is of Loulou de la Falaise who collaborates […]

There are many people who suggest that fashion runway shows are a waste of time.  They take a lot of hours and money to plan but result in a twelve minute show. Every time I attend an Oscar de la Renta fashion show, I am reminded of the magic that happens when you see the fashions come down the […]

Everyone is always asking for suggestions on what to do in New York.  If you will be visiting over the holidays, I highly recommend making time for the Balenciaga: Spanish Master exhibition at the Queen Sofia Spanish Institute that runs through February 19, 2011.  I didn’t know much about Balenciaga before this show and it was […]
