“PUNTA CANA STYLE- Oscar De La Renta” - 7 Comments

  1. Mr. Sikes,

    it was a wonderful pleasure to “stumble” upon your great website! I. too, am a huge fan of Mr. de la Renta’s style. I clipped an article featuring his Punta Cana residence years ago (1988, I believe from american Vogue) and Have used it as a visual reference and inspiration.

    i am Grateful for you in publishing it on your website, as It has been most troublesome to find any other articles relating to his magnificent home.

    May i suggest a web search on india hicks and david flint wood? She’s the stunningly beautiful cousin to the royal family with a lovely home in the bahamas. It reminds me of mr. de la renta’s colonial home. A stylish couple indeed.

    I shall continue to visit your website often… and i especially look forward to hearing about your visit to punta cana.
