Oscar de la Renta Spring/Summer 2016 ready-to-wear collection designed by Peter Copping was shown September 15,2015 in New York Fashion Week.
Maison Oscar de la Renta unveiled its second collection since the death of its founder with another beautiful display of hispanish-inspired elegance by british creative director Peter Copping.
It was a masterclass in timeless, classical elegance with suits, breathtaking ball gowns, cocktail dresses, skirts and blouses crafted into a long, slender silhouette suitable for women young and old alike. The designer paid homage to the house’s late founder with a runway show which explored hispanic style.
Copping made plentiful use of ruffles and lace. There were bold floral prints. Colors were crimson, black, white, green and splashes of orange and powerful red. Copping kept with De La Renta’s tradition of embroidery and luxe textiles while adding lingerie details for a more sensual touch. Tying into the Latin influence, the espadrille shoe made an appearance on the runway, updated with crystal and lace work.
