About

Peasant style Oscar de la Renta evening ensemble from the 1980's. The cream blouse and skirt is detailed with gold and silver threading creating a dotted pattern on the blouse and a floral and stripe pattern on the skirt. Amazing worn together or separately, the blouse is meant to be tucked into the skirt and the puffed sleeves balance the volume of the ballgown style skirt. The V neck is accentuated with a frilled collar and a gold button. The skirt has a banded waistband and pleated top that adds to the formal gown look and closes with a side zipper. In excellent condition, fits like a US 4.

About Oscar de la Renta

    Oscar de la Renta was not just a designer for the ages but a designer for women of all ages — from Hollywood starlets to silver-haired doyennes, from fashion icons (Sarah Jessica Parker) to iconic brides (Amal Alamuddin Clooney), from leading ladies of hip-hop (Nicki Minaj) to First Ladies of the United States (Jacqueline Kennedy all the way through to Michelle Obama). The secret to his broad and enduring appeal? “I have always thought that my role as a designer is to do the very best I can for a woman,” de la Renta told 1stdibs in a 2010 profile.

    And for de la Renta, doing the very best meant making a woman feel beautiful, glamorous and full of confidence, whether she was walking down the red carpet or a crowded city street. "You carry the clothes, the clothes don't carry you," he went on to say in our story.

    A perennial favorite on 1stdibs, Oscar de la Renta designs evolved over the years, as the large selection of items below attests, but whether bolero or ball gown, vintage or current, the pieces exude elegant sophistication and enduring originality — much like the man himself.
