Sheer Oscar De LaRenta Embellished Jacket


Gorgeous phenomenal handworked jacket. Made from silk chiffon Mr De LaRenta has artfully embellished this jacket with ribbons of satin and patent leather in a modernist design recalling the work of Harry Bertoia. Like a Bertoia wall sculpture the tiny strips of ribbon and leather appear to float above the surface. All individually applied by hand this is a rare design of embellishment which is not floral nor heavy with historical references. On the contrary the piece reads light, airy and feminine whilst maintaining the classic elegance we love Oscar De LaRenta for.

About Oscar De La Renta (Manufacturer)

    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.
