Fall Preview: Oscar de la Renta

Oscar de la Renta has embraced the fountain of youth for fall. To accompany a ready-to-wear offering that included baby-pink and -blue knits, oversized prints and joyful party dresses, the designer created a number of dressed-down shoe styles. Lace-up looks with exposed zippers and booties wrapped in buckles keep the collection contemporary. De la Renta even put a playful spin on more luxurious styles, with boots covered in colored fur and dripping in gigantic jewels. Still, sequined shooties, metallic sandals and a sculpted satin number added to his special-occasion styles. The Oscar de la Renta fall line will be available for $695 to $795 at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue and select luxury retailers.
