‘Tis the season of runway presentations created in-between Spring/Summer and Fall/Winter fashion weeks, like Chanel's Cruise collection nestled inside the gardens of Versailles. Much like Carolina Herrera or Valentino you can always count on Oscar de la Renta to deliver incredibly beautiful pieces that are at once elegant and quite wearable season after season.

For his resort 2013 presentation in NYC the word of the day was clearly bold, electric color. From neon highlights in the models hair loosely tucked into a bun, to pairing rich hues like violet and emerald green. The collection married classic de la Renta signatures like floor length gowns in tulle and organza with more modern references beautifully. The one piece that exemplified this burgeoning futuristic aesthetic was a sequined baseball shirt -which can already be purchased online- paired with a gingham green and white skirt.

As a designer who was trained by Cristóbal Balenciaga himself, de la Renta has been creating couture pieces since the 1960’s for lucky women across the world. One of the most famous of those women which include movie stars and royalty, was Jackie Kennedy.

Staple pieces remained firmly planted in the Oscar de la Renta resort 2013 collection, including elegant separates, knee-length pencil skirts, floral printed sleeveless day dresses and of course every designer’s obsession actuellement, peplum. Lush embroideries and pastel pink sequins reigned supreme as did blown-up photo prints on silk tunics, which were presented almost always with belts, from silk bows, to patent leather and sometimes even adorned with a brooch.

A glossy emerald green strapless silk faille gown that flared at the bottom and featured some exaggerated peplum action was a marvel in slick, expertly executed construction. Details, are what has sustained an adored designer like Oscar de la Renta for so many years in the fashion industry. Caged, lace-like heels, and colorful accessories were so perfectly tailored to each look that it is hard to imagine a single reason why the clothing will not be flying off the racks as soon as they are available in stores. For now though, the limited-edition sequined baseball shirt is available on The Fancy for a generously priced, $2490.
