NEW YORK — Edging past his previous record, Oscar de la Renta pulled in $2.4 million worth of fall orders at a trunk show at Bergdorf Goodman this month. Last year’s fall collection generated $2.25 million.
The trunk show took place May 5-9, with an additional two days last Wednesday and Thursday. Bestsellers included a black leather motorcycle jacket with studded embroidery and rabbit-fur trim for $4,800; a long, embroidered suede, camel-colored coat with rabbit-fur trim for $9,500; a red brocade cocktail dress for $3,800, and jeweled cashmere sweaters — turquoise was the most popular color — for $1,800 apiece.
