After a few seasons of paired-down fashions to reflect leaner economic times, the tides are turning toward a fleshier economic future. Oscar De La Renta brings opulence to his fall 2011 line by taking a nod from historic Russian military uniforms. Displaying lavish embroideries and colored fox fur, the collection will make every gal feel like Russian royalty.
The designer has placed an emphasis on outerwear so that the budget-minded fashionista can incorporate just one new item into her wardrobe this winter that will create head-turning impact.
Historically, fashion has been almost like an economic forecast, so with this showing of extravagant fabrics and patterns, things are looking up. Intricate thread work and trims adorn the daywear portion of this season's line, so going to the office is made even more fun.
