On the matter of how editorial to make his fashion shows, Oscar de la Renta has vacillated back and forth. In the resort collection he showed on Monday, he went both ways, literally — the first half a delightful, if sometimes too referential, nod to the rue Cambon, editorial right down to the adorable bow-tied lace anklets, and the second, a more maturely rendered lineup of the designer’s classics: smart sheaths, suits and caftans, some with a Moroccan flavor, and elegant gowns. If the divide made for quizzical runway viewing, it offered a diverse array of chic clothes that Oscar gals will love wearing. And that is supposed to be the essence of resort.
