For the Oscar de la Renta Fall 2022 RTW collection video, models Jordan Daniels, Mayowa Nichols, Taylor Hill, and Barbara Valente play office types by day and party girls by night.
Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim’s starting point for fall, they said, was Florence, Italy, and their discovery that the model for Botticelli’s Birth of Venus was a married woman that Renaissance propriety forbade him from painting. “Oscar loved a society drama,” Garcia chuckled. The city’s many marble floored palazzi inspired a print that combined florals, seashells, inlaid tile work, and pearls spilling suggestively off their strand that appeared on pouf-sleeved backless dress and matching hooded cape.
Because the collection was in development in December, they crocheted echinacea flowers, which they were passing around in supplement form to friends with Covid, on a short shift dress. Bright colors were everywhere, on a leather coat, on velvet tailoring, on tinsel party wear. “They come to us for color,” Garcia said. “I’m allowed one black dress a season.” And the silhouette was mostly short.
