The Oscar de Larenta Autumn Winter 2020 collection was a fresh, exuberant and clarified one. The creative directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia drew inspiration from a rather unpredictable character, Mickey Mouse – a segment in the 1940 Disney film that stars Mickey Mouse as a wizard’s novice. “Well, we were doing the music,” Kim explained, with slight hesitation, “and our music producer suggested Fantasia, because we were Oscar’s apprentices: the sorcerer’s apprentices.”She used the 1940 Disney film to describe the collection.
“After we finished the collection, we realised we were taking ourselves too seriously with this theme. We’re quite light-hearted losers,” Garcia smiled, who styled himself in a nerdy look. “So, we reminded ourselves that we are Mickey: we only know about all this from books and stories and what Oscar told us. This is who we are,” he said, gesturing at himself and Kim. “We infused the fun into the collection because it felt a little serious.”
The runway was filled with autumnal looks, from tweed to embroidery in black and also bold colours. There were floral accents to sweaters, and coats, also some dresses featured floral print which brought joy to our sight. Velvets and big voluminous gowns and dresses were not missing on the runway. Some new trends were set while some looks were re-imagined. There were fringes, frocks, mettallics and power suiting is very much alive.
The accessories where thigh high boots, monochromatic box bags, velvet bags, mini micro star bags and so on. The beauty looks were models on red lips with hair slicked back.
Overall, the honesty and openness in this collection is infectious, we’re very confident a quick sell out.
