(NEW YORK) "This collection is about making people fall in love. There is a Russian children’s story called The Tale of the Firebird, and so the collection was in a way inspired by this fairytale. It’s just about making people dream," explained Oscar de la Renta after his pre-fall 2010 collection held yesterday at 583 Park Avenue. The 49 looks invited guests to join de la Renta's surreal fantasy world teeming with chiffon, taffeta and tulle adorned with a mass of baubles and embellishments. There was not a single bleak note during the sing-songy production. De la Renta delivered plenty of print-on-print action, as canary ikat patterns and turquoise embroidered patchwork dresses and jackets animated the runway. An all-over pink ensemble from a bubblegum cashmere cardigan to a rosy tweed skirt was an ebullient burst of color. De la Renta highlighted the importance of enjoying oneself and letting loose. "My inspiration, of course, will always be women. I am always trying to make the very best that I can for them. The whole world is going through a difficult time, and so when we go through something like this, it’s important to have a very optimistic approach and make things as fun and as beautiful as you possibly can."
