Models, including Karlie Kloss and Jourdan Dunn, immediately made an impact on the runway of Oscar de la Renta’s Fall 2014 collection, wearing blunt-cut, mini-bob hairpieces styled by famed stylist Orlando Pita. Following the mane attraction, the ultra-short ‘dos enabled onlookers to feast their eyes on the most important point of the show – the fashion.
From the start, fabric was everything. Cable knit and shearling warmed things up, while leather boosted sex appeal, and lace gave a ladylike complement. And, as seen many times this season, fur was prominent throughout. Floor-length coats boasted the treatment, while handbags and neck wraps also received the fuzzy addition.
When it came to colors, de la Renta delivered all the autumn hues you would expect. Deeps browns, golds, blues and reds were used time and again, however, the line was given a welcomed pop of brightness with the introduction of green and purple through pattern work.
The other major statement of the night: Classic monochrome. Black and white gave the range a timeless feel and was displayed on woven jackets, pantsuits, daytime dresses, and tailored separates.
And the red carpet powerhouse didn’t disappoint when it came to eveningwear either. From embroidered ball gowns and sheer paneled A-lines to embellished, form-fitting sheaths, there was a cut to satisfy every shape. The showstopper? Standout Karlie Kloss in a flowing, polka dot print frock that closed the show.
