Oscar de la Renta vs. Andreas Schulze
As designers roll out red carpets from Monte Carlo to Dubai for their Resort 2015 collections, one thing is for sure: Oscar de la Renta doesn't buy into the hype. Declaring "Resort means nothing," the Dominican-born couturier held a pared-back presentation in New York last week. The stars of the show, as ever, were the classic, perfectly-tailored ball gowns. One particularly striking confection brought to mind artist Andreas Schulze's avant-garde carafe, which, in an unusual turn for this column, might be just as pricey as its style opponent.
