Oscar de la Renta Bridal Spring 2016 Collection

We love Oscar de la Renta. Who does not love Oscar de la Renta? There is such a sweet elegance to each and every one of his collections, along with the funky touches and the sophisticated silhouettes that really have us believing in the fashion house’s abilities when it comes to designing the right pieces to fit with the right seasons. So when we were faced with the Oscar de la Renta bridal spring 2016 collection, we knew that we had hit the jackpot in bridal looks for the label has brought us all that we expected from the line-up.

Peter Copping has taken over as the creative designer now and his pragmatic approach is to be applauded really. He offered a rather generous and versatile selection of 25 pieces to choose from, ranging from the more conventional to the shorter, more modern and practical looks. He even gave us a few options for the flower girls! We believe that does not happen too often as designers are often more interested in dressing the bride rather than the bridal party. “Basically, I just wanted to offer a really good cross-section of different types of dresses so that it could appeal to many different sorts of brides,” he said as he was interviewed backstage by WWD of his first bridal season he has designed for since assuming the creative helm at Oscar de la Renta in the fall. It has been a good change for the brand as the late designer himself trusted Copping with his collections beforehand, getting him ready to take on the job.

Copping’s intention was to offer a rather wide range of silhouettes and he achieved that easily enough it appears as we have spotted everything from playful tea-length and floral appliqued cocktail dresses with their modern additions and sweet allure, as well as the youthful edges that simply are breathtaking, to the more sheer lace column gowns that fit so perfectly and reminded us intensely of an incredible destination beach wedding. Ivory taffeta was seen all over, as well as tiered organza and gauzy tulle. There was so much romance in the air, the sweetness could send you to the dentist really. Floral patterning, crystals and sequins as well as all over embroidery took over and created a princess out of any bride, no matter which era she wanted to belong to. Copping understood that many girls do want the traditional styles with the full blown gowns and the twinkling stars on their bodies.

As for the colors, Copping did not stray from the traditional white and ivory, giving himself a bit of a time off as he could now concentrate on the overall theme and collection instead of labouring over minute details that have a huge impact such as the right hues for the season. Halters, strapless, off-the-shoulder; we saw it all and fell in love all over again. We have to admit that out of the many designer wedding dress collections presented, de la Renta’s was probably one of the very best. We might want to skip those huge flowery headwear pieces though as it might be a little much for most weddings. Embroidered edged to the veils though? We love them wholeheartedly!
