oscar’s new book, Oscar de la Renta: The Style, Inspiration, and Life of Oscar de la Renta/ buy here, has arrived. not just one arrived to my house, actually i think i’ve ordered three as of now. one for my bedroom, one for my library and one for my office… it can never be to far from reach…i’m sure i’ll be buying more, can’t think of a better gift to give or receive.
the book was first published back in 2002 by assouline. they reissued the book with lots of new images and content, i especially love the cover and case. you can buy the first version of the book by sarah mower here…i have several of them too!
i won’t go on and on about his talent, his spirit, his style, his homes, his matchless taste, his kindness…i’ve done all that before in previous posts, however, i will reiterate that i’m smitten with how he has intertwined fashion with interiors and vice versa… i think i should just let the pictures from the book speak for themselves… beautiful, rich, pretty, elegant, happy….
i wanted to do something very special to feature this book. i shot some of my favorite images in the book and mixed in some of my favorite things. it tells a story, a story of being ‘Oscar Obsessed.’ enjoy!
