Label Overview

Oscar de la Renta, 1965 - Present

After apprenticing with the likes of Balenciaga in Spain and Antonio Castillo at Lanvin in Paris, the Dominican designer went off on his own in 1965. His penchant for refined, ladylike looks struck a chord with women of means and garnered De la Renta a slew of Coty Awards. He’s since won numerous CFDA awards—including one in 1990 for Lifetime Achievement—and his momentum shows no signs of waning. He introduced accessories in 2001 and a home line in 2002. He was busy in 2004, with the launch of an eyewear line, a lower-priced line called O Oscar, and a freestanding store on Madison Avenue. It was also the year he handed over his chief-executive title to son-in-law Alex Bolen. De la Renta continues to design the collections and remains chairman, and though he’s begun to court a slightly younger, hipper customer, he’s still the tailor of note for women of a certain age. Dirndls, ornate embroidery, sumptuous fur, cheerful florals, and a dash of exotic Latin detail are some of his favorite things.
