(NEW YORK) Oscar de la Renta is known for many things---his sprawling estate in his native Dominican Republic where Anna Wintour often vacations, his socialite-studded front rows---but his gowns are the most universally beloved creations in the designer's universe. On Monday, he revealed the house's Spring 2010 Bridal collection at ODLR headquarters on Seventh Avenue, the fourth bridal collection since its launch for Spring 2007.
The 27 looks catered to brides of diverse ages, shapes and sizes, as gowns, sheaths and even a silk razmir pant alternated on the runway. Even the most minimal looks, like a knee-length silk faille strapless dress, was heavy on the luxury--in this case, the dress was topped with an ivory guipure lace overlay. Of course, de la Renta's signature strapless gowns with draped bodices stole the show, several with enough layers of silk tulle and organza to sate even the boldest bride. The final look, a pink silk taffeta empire gown with a tulle-embroidered overlay, nodded to de la Renta's particular brand of modernism, which always suggest that even classics should be played with whimsically and relentlessly.
