Óscar de la Renta’s fashion show on Tuesday night was a floral, colorful experience full of chic candy for the eye. The 82-year-old designer was watching his show proudly from a chair and then emerged holding arms with his model muse, Karlie Kloss, and then giving her a kiss on the cheek, then took a bow and returned backstage. The collection did not disappoint as de la Renta’s usual elegance flooded the runway. Lacy eyelet skirts and gowns, bright lime green, orange and yellow fabrics, gold sequins, luscious broaches, and flower embroidery were only a few details that made the collection exquisitely feminine.

Most de la Renta shows are characterized for starting off with the more relaxed styles slowly progressing onto the most luxurious gowns. This show was no exception going from large buffalo check print outfits to closing with an ivory gown with bright lime green embroidery, worn by Karlie Kloss.

This Fashion Week has been all about collaborations, “joining forces” or inviting special guests and Óscar de la Renta didn’t fall behind, except his collaboration was not a lucrative one but a charitable one with the Clinton Foundation. Show attendants got plush stuffed elephants to raise awareness about poachers.
