It was probably the most anticipated runway show of the season. Peter Copping (handpicked successor to Oscar de la Renta) debut his first collection as creative director.The collection was a tribute in such a way to the brands past and its future gathered together to witness the changing of the guard and to pass judgment. The collection had pretty dresses, constructed suits, sleek coat-over-dress, series of graphic tweeds, a full-skirted suit, and evening-wear with some inspired by the Black and White Ball including frothy cocktail dresses. Copping did a fine job honoring de la Renta and the house that he has inherited. This collection will please the legions of Oscar loyalists and shows that he knows what the house is all about.
