Runway : Oscar de la Renta Spring 2015 Ready-to-Wear



OSCAR KNOWS THE WAY TO A WOMAN’S HEART, and he continues to prove it with every one of his exquisite collections. For the spring, he envisions her as youthful, feminine, and impeccably polished. She wears the most intricately made dresses in fabrics from gingham to broderie anglaise, yet doesn’t mind showing her midriff in an cropped A-line top, or some leg in a midi semi-transparent skirt. The colours she adores come from her gardens — pastel greens, blues and pinks, but sometimes she throws on a monochrome set to mix things up.
02 For the evening, delicately embroidered flowers on gowns and Persian lambskin coats alike hang in her wardrobe, along with the winning ensemble of the show: a golden sequin bandeau with a matching ball skirt embroidered with ostrich feathers, that will eventually be worn to a ball in Vienna or the red carpet during the Academy Awards. —Victoria03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19Images via and Vogue.

Victoria lives in the south of Spain, having moved there from her native country Ukraine when she was just a child. She finds herself looking up to timeless icons from past decades including Jackie O, Grace Kelly, Katherine Deneuve and Audrey Hepburn, and longing for sunny afternoons on the French Riviera and walks along the Seine during spring. Always overdressed and dishing out on tailored pieces and shoes – secretly dreaming they were from Dior or Saint Laurent – she dresses for herself rather than others, and would trade breakfast for Vogue or a one way ticket to anywhere beautiful.
