A little something for everyone is how one might describe the designer’s pre-fall collection. The 56-look show opened on a relatively casual note with two denim looks: a slim tweed dress and matching jacket; a calf-grazing A-line skirt, pleated, belted and worn with a poplin shirt. The latter harkened back to the late Seventies style of daytime ladylike ease.

The lineup was tinged with a subtle retro flavor as de la Renta dabbled in separates, candy-colored tweed suits, crocheted pieces and opulent party dresses styled with lattice-work hosiery; sometimes there was a more-is-more attitude. Notes of the folkloric traced throughout, whether in a navy georgette dress with vertical, miniature floral strips, or the reddish-orange long-sleeve gown.

Those with a taste for the more classically glamorous were also well-addressed in the evening department with options ranging from silver fringed lamé to a peach trumpet gown.
