Oscar de la Renta Fall 2012

It’s no secret that Oscar de la Renta’s team includes some of the fashion industry's most social media savvy people, so it’s fitting that his Fall 2012 collection mixed elements that would appeal to both ODLR’s core older conservative clientele as well as to the more youthful demographic that has recently been taking an interest in his brand (thanks to, for example, forward-thinking tactics like selling items exclusively on Facebook).

Mixing neutral, jewel, and icy tones, the collection was embellished with everything from jewels and paillettes to fur and fishnets – this was no tame collection. Luxe in every sense of the word, bows, sparkles, tulle, prints, and frilly details were bountiful making for a wonderfully vibrant line-up that never felt too busy, thanks to spot-on styling. From the day tweeds to the floor-length tulle gowns, Fall 2012 was wearable luxury at its best.
