Playfully painting, the Oscar de la Renta Spring campaign adds a splash of color

Channeling painterly scenes, the Oscar de la Renta Spring 2018 ad campaign features models Mariacarla Boscono and Duckie Thot.

Photographed by Tim Walker, the models pose in elegant looks featuring bold prints and patterns. Stylist Kate Phelan dresses the pair in ladylike dresses, statement shades and cocktail looks.

Their points of reference for Spring were Pop Art and a trove of letters Mr. De la Renta wrote. From the paint splatter–print button-downs and paintbrush-heel pumps to the signature prints on tailoring and huge block letters picked out in sequins on a strapless party dress. The collection featured frayed and faded denim, sheer dresses, bathing suits and furs, mixed with logo prints.

The daywear featured pretty numbers in colorful dégradé tulle and a few more in black tulle lightly traced with silver sequins.
