Never one to skimp on a pre-collection, Oscar de la Renta staged a full-scale runway production for pre-fall, complete with 58 looks. Day clothes began in graphic black-and-white patterns and then moved into a deep garnet color (on leathers, laces and tweeds) and jewel-tone geometric prints. It was a rich visual display — the outerwear in particular — tinged with Russian bourgeois courtesy of an abundance of oversize cabochon jewels. The color continued into evening, where the pleated goddess gowns made for a soft, fluid counterpoint to the crisp daywear.
