The Oscar de la Renta Resort 2015 collection sparked the return of retro glamour on the runway. The nostalgic presentation featured the work of the iconic American designer and his long-time friend, jewelry designer Kirat Bhinder Young.

Inspirations from the late 70s and early 80s were offset with a couture sensibility of early Christian Dior. In addition to its range of patterned separates and oversized coats, the Oscar de la Renta Resort 2015 collection's most memorable pieces were its glamorous gowns.

Floral embroidery, structured corset shells and jewel-encrusted textiles marked the marriage of youthful details and Old Hollywood silhouettes on the runway stage. The feminine collection paired monochromatic and neutral tones with bold fuchsia hues that revived a retro resort aesthetic.
