Oscar de la Renta Resort 2012...

...is anyone else going "ga-ga" over Oscar de la Renta's 2012 Resort collection? Because I sure am...its gorgeous! Plus it is much needed in this dreary and rainy weather that is ever so persistent...Apparently inspired by the Cubism art movement and artists such as Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris and Georges Braque, this collection features geometric shapes teamed with bright colours and simple designs...below is a blurb from Vogue on the collection...enjoy...
A review en Vogue:
"Even if the view outside was of a downpour-drenched Manhattan—and on a-start-the-working-week Monday to (rain) boot just to compound the meteorologically induced misery—at least what was on display in Oscar de la Renta’s 25th-floor showroom (so new it is still in a raw state of bare-bones deconstruction) was designed to bring some sparkle and shine to the day. Inspiration wise, Oscar was thinking about another climate, specifically the artistic milieu of Paris roughly a century ago, to the then-controversial movement of Cubism, with the designer liberally quoting from the oeuvres of Pablo Picasso, Juan Gris,and Georges Braque. Cue a collage-approach, a trompe l’oeil mash-up of graphically placed paillettes, patchwork appliqu├ęs, newspaper, guitars, and "Cubist scribble" prints, all rendered on some classic Oscarisms: the slim cardigan skirt suit, the sleeveless sheath, the volume-pumped cocktail dress, the soft-yet-dramatic blouse. (Many worn, incidentally, with a rather fabulous bootie that was part sandal, part hiking kit.)" ~by Mark Holgate

Personally I love! What's more is that it takes my mind of the fact that when I look out the window all I see is gray skies and perpetual rain...here's hoping the weather improves soon...sigh...

Love K
