Resort 2017: Oscar De La Renta

What has become clear in the year and a half since Peter Copping took the reigns at Oscar de la Renta following the designers untimely death is that, no matter what happens, the look of the OdlR brand will always remain. those who worried that Copping’s own personal style would take over the storied brand, which spent decades upon decades under the same hand.

One wouldn’t blame Copping for trying either. The fashion industry is notoriously resistant to change, and one got the sense by the end of de la Renta’s time that his increasingly garish color pairings were being cheered less for what they brought to the table and more for their continued existence serving the expected.

Instead what Copping has done is brought an editing eye to the de la Renta look. The clashing color pairing still show up here and there, most obviously in the pink floor-length number accented with a bright yellow bow at the waist, but the palette is just softened enough that it doesn’t hurt. the rainbow florals are still there, they’ve just been relegated to respectable areas instead be being allowed to grow wildly all over the frock in question. What Copping has done is to bring the commerce side to the art and taken the look that the fashion world doesn’t want to lose and made it more appealing to the mainstream without losing any of the things that made OdlR a stand out for all those years. it’s a fine needle to thread, and he should be commended for hitting it out of the park once again.
