Oscar de la Renta interprets the art of ikebana in georgette. Skirt-over-pants costume, $200
I’m sure that by now everyone has heard the news of the death of Oscar de la Renta on Monday. From the time I was first aware of fashion designers in the early 1970s, Oscar has always been on the scene, so it is really hard imagining American fashion without him.
I’ve said that if I had the money, I’d wear Oscar and nothing else. A trip to his boutique in New York was always a treat. It was the type of place where the clothes were always beautiful, but always very wearable by women of many ages. He will be missed.
