Oscar de la Renta Pre-Fall 2017 Collection Unveils Peruvian Influences

This latest Oscar de la Renta pre-fall 2017 collection just proved that one should always trust a mansion’s design studio, especially when its members decide to combine the brand’s signature styles with high-end artistic references.

Dubbed “Alta Moda” to pay homage to iconic photographer Mario Testino’s 2014 eponymous exhibition, the Oscar de la Renta pre-fall 2017 collection is the house’s second collection designed by the design studio team after Peter Copping’s departure, which left many either extremely relieved or worried about Oscar de la Renta’s future.

With the Alta Moda Oscar de la Renta pre-fall 2017 line-up, the fashion house has just managed to release something that is equally classic and new, as thanks to Testino’s exhibition of photos of people in traditional Peruvian dress, the design studio indeed managed to capture some of the fashion house’s iconic and traditional heritage as well.

When trying to describe a collection to a journalist who complained “that nobody dresses up anymore,” Oscar de la Renta’s CEO Alex Bolen commented saying that he highly disagrees, as he thinks “we have to give them ways to dress up that make sense for the way we live today.” And just by looking at this astounding 28-piece Oscar de la Renta pre-fall 2017 collection, we couldn’t agree more with him.

The best part of the collection is, in fact, that each one of the proposals is as high-end as wearable, especially when it comes to the sweaters and the skirts. Full of separates, the proposals can be mix-and-matched with one another to create something unique, i.e. a soigné outfit that can easily transition from day to night.

The collection’s Testino/Peruvian inspiration plays a huge role in shaping the collection’s elegant allure for sure, as it got realized in rich, textured materials with silhouettes harmoniously balancing and enhancing the looks. Predominantly flared, some of the gowns also feature either layered cascades of frills, or more curve-hugging figures, which all inevitably accentuate the waists.

Like many spring/summer 2017 collections, this latest Oscar de la Renta’s transitional season is all about the belt cinched at the waists, the balancing outcomes of which also find a good ally in the long-sleeved t-shirt’s butterfly and frilled hems.

As we approach the collection’s very last pieces, Oscar de la Renta’s studio design team shows their focus on conventionally chic staples, which all feature a deep, rounded sleeveless neckline.

When it comes to the color palette, the Oscar de la Renta pre-fall 2017 collection is extremely interesting, too. Aside from signature Peruvian inspired reds and greens (which come just in time after Pantone’s Color of the Year 2017 announcement), the collection experiments with striped black and white patterns, rich blues and bright whites as well, which all infuse the entire line-up with some ready-to-wear-approved vibes.
