I haven't ever been much of a fan of showing or talking about one-note collections that only show one type of garment and for this reason I never thought I would want to show you a collection made up almost entirely of gowns. But Oscar de la Renta's runway show proved me wrong: there's nothing wrong with a collection based on gowns, when they are so versatile as his collection was. The lush fabrics and bold colors and the different types of cuts managed to blend in and create a cohesive collection. My absolute favorite is this cobalt blue dress in the opening photo worn by Karlie Kloss, but there were other great pieces as well, such as the first three gowns, the black and white gown with the sheer embroidered top or the nude dress with a red ribbon on the shoulder towards the end of the show. And let's not forget the shoes: how gorgeous are those black or neon yellow shoes with lots of straps?!
Here are the most interesting looks from the runway:
What's you opinion on such a collection? Is it too monotonous to present almost only gowns or can it be a good thing if it's done the right way? Do you have any favorite pieces?
