The Oscar de la Renta Spring 2022 RTW collection film is a celebration of New York energy.
Five models including Irina Shayk and Candace Swanepoel run around the city, catching cabs, hopping the subway, and riding Citi Bikes, before convening in Bryant Park for an impromptu runway show. The Hiltons—Paris, Nicky, and their mom Kathy—make cameos, as do Kim and Garcia themselves. The biggest get was Billie Eilish, who gave the duo rights to use her song “Oxytocin.”
On the racks in the showroom, there was a push-pull between the intimacy of those prints and the drama of the evening dresses, some of which were made in raffia fringe as replacement for feathers. The designers are also going fur-free, at the urging of their superstar collaborator Eilish, who is an animal rights activist.
