Oscar Forever

Fashion News

You may have noticed your mail carrier toting his load with a little more poise of late, or perhaps you’ve caught her strutting to your mailbox, mail held like a clutch in hand. Blame it on the recently released Oscar de la Renta collection of stamps from the USPS.

Consider these postage stamps like a series of thumb-size artworks—10 detailed images from some of the late great designer’s most spectacular gowns, plus a black and white portrait of de la Renta, photographed by Inez & Vinoodh. Among the 10 works of art are a selection of runway details—our attention turns to the swish of a silk skirt, or the architectural folds of an organza dress—as well as a few moments of reflection on the exquisite embroidery, and the perfect placement of a feminine bow.

De la Renta passed away in 2014, leaving many in the fashion industry—and his legions of fans —nostalgic for his singular style and for those that knew him beyond the label, a bit empty hearted. For more than 50 years he created unforgettable fashion, under his own brand since 1965, and before that for Lanvin and Balmain.

Currently helmed by designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, who worked for the house for years, the new creative directors debuted their Fall collection last month, which we can’t wait to arrive in stores later this year.
