We all know Oscar de la Renta was an absolute genius and lover of women – a man who knew us better than we knew ourselves. It truly shows when a collection released 8 years ago contains pieces I would quite happily show off right now. I would feel like a little French princess – all dolled up and girly. And I’ve always wanted to be a classy European lady on a Mediterranean vacation.
Wouldn’t everyday be so much better if we felt like that? Even the most banal tasks would seem more bearable if only we dressed for our dreams.
What a blessing he was for the women of the fashion world; that’s why we will be gazing at his shows for years and years to come.
