#NYFW Oscar de la Renta Fall 2011

Oscar de la Renta's Fall 2011 collection was both elegant and opulent. ” I was inspired by the woman,” said De la Renta. “I went on a beautiful journey in my mind.” The voyage seemed to have taken the designer to China where rich colors and fabrics served as the foundation for a luxurious collection. Karlie Kloss opened and closed the show, exiting in a glamourous midnight blue tiered gown; his evening confection's were particularly strong this season. And after the Golden Globes it became apparent that green was on an upward trajectory and it's no wonder. “Green is the color of hope,” De la Renta told us. And after seeing his incredible show, you can't help but be optimistic!
