Oscar de la Renta and Rodarte brought their own take on glamour to New York, as a fresh spring palette of yellow and white dominated.
Striking silk taffeta ballgowns opened the Oscar de la Renta show in saturated bright green, yellow and red. Lace and crochet tops were teamed with silk gowns, which were hitched at the front to reveal a hint of ankle. Tweed twinsets and feathered full length evening dresses ensued, but it was a chartreuse and white floral gown that drew the biggest gasps of admiration.
Rodarte found inspiration in the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh as sunflowers prints were worked into 1950s prom dresses. Dresses were nipped in at the waist and at times had hints of the 1980s, with ruffled detailing at the hips and around the neckline of off-the-shoulder dresses. The show finished with butterfly embroidered netting, cut asymmetrically over royal blue and purple silk.
