"I don't really know how to do casual clothes," remarked Oscar de la Renta to WWD in 1979. "It looks contrived when I do it." That bit of self-assessment may well be true, but it certainly hasn't hurt the designer's career a bit. After all, de la Renta's dedicated and ever-growing clientele doesn't look to him for an ensemble in which to take the kids to soccer practice. Since Day One, Oscar's woman has been one who dresses elegantly for both day and evening. Much like the man himself, his collections are never short on charm, life or color, yet they are unyieldingly well-mannered, never vulgar. And whether he's working with the uptown propriety of a tidy lunch suit or the haute bohemia of a crystal-encrusted caftan, he never fails to weave in a dreamy thread of magic. Here, some great moments from de la Renta's fabulous 40 years of fashion.
@moncler unveiled its latest project, #MonclerGenius, yesterday at Milan Fashion Week. The Italian outwear maker gave show-goers a preview of the monthly collections – which were created by eight designers and creative talents including Pierpaolo Piccioli, Simone Rocha, Craig Green and more – that will start rolling out in the summer.
In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
