Oscar de la Renta Children’s Collection Has Launched!

Oscar de la Renta has launched his first children’s collection.   The legendary designer is bringing his signature feminine style to the kiddie set just in time for Easter and Spring Cotillions.

The collection includes party dresses with girly tie-backs and mother-of-pearl buttons with a hint of tulle, pleated gingham ensembles and more casual summer and beach dresses.   There are tunics, beach coverups, bathing suits, blouses, shorts and leggings.  His designs feature peter pan collars, exquisite smocking, rick rack trim and some fabulous Liberty of London floral patterns.  For boys there are rompers, polos, blazers, bathing suits, shorts and trousers.  The designs are reminiscent of my old favorites from Papo d’Anjo (now defunct, which was disappointing) and Best & Company.  Take a look at the collection here!  Women’s Wear Daily reported that Catherine Monterio de Barros, the founder and designer of Lisbon-based Papo d’Anjo has been brought on board as Vice President of design for the new collection. What do you think of the collection?

    Reminiscent of Classic Child clothing, introduced in the 90’s. They were the first (of the American designers) to bring back simple rick rack, gingham, Liberty of London and of course patchwork madras for little ones.
