Yes you read it right. Oscar de la Renta is teaming up with The Outnet once again following a successful collaboration in February 2013.
This campaign features entrepreneur and founder of Russian fashion news website Buro247, Miroslava Duma. Based in Moscow, Duma is photographed and recognized worldwide for her impeccable sense of style. She is known for choosing pieces that flatter her petite frame and reflect her sparkling personality, making her the perfect embodiment of both the Oscar de la Renta and The Outnet brands.
“I love the Oscar de la Renta for The Outnet collection, with its beautiful silk dresses and feminine silhouettes. It’s elegant, sophisticated and chic – exactly how every woman wants to look” says Miroslava. And that it is, with plenty of pieces to choose from this collection, which is also perfect for this time of year. Speaking of the collaboration, Erika Bearman (also known as @oscarprgirl on Twitter!) “The collection has an easy, carefree glamour that is incredibly appealing and perfect for THE OUTNET obsessed. Every woman I know will want to wear these pieces.”
The second Oscar de la Renta for The Outnet collection includes an array of party dresses, skirts and embellished tops perfect for the holiday season. In line with the true Oscar de la Renta ethos, each piece references a classic silhouette, reinvented in luxe fabrics such as jewel-tone silk, rich brocade and glistening tweed. The range also includes 12 resort pieces, with bright ikat prints, polka dots and stripes, highlights of the range include a stretch-cotton dress with a flounced hem and a statement floor-length kaftan.
And… as a bonus the lovely Miroslava did a fabulous Q&A on being part of such an exciting campaign and stylesisle.ie has been given access to this for your reading pleasure!!
How would you describe Oscar de la Renta’s designs?
Miroslava: Oscar de la Renta’s style is very classic, very uptown – it makes you feel confident, chic and elegant. I love the Oscar de la Renta for THE OUTNET collection; it’s beautiful silk dresses and feminine silhouettes are elegant and sophisticated.
Favourite pieces from the exclusive collection?
Miroslava: The Oscar de la Renta for THE OUTNET collection is very unique and beautiful. In the exclusive collection, you can find pieces for every occasion. The bright, floral silk dresses are perfect for evenings, cocktails or an important event.
Would you wear these pieces for daytime?
Miroslava: It’s more of an evening collection.
How would you wear / style the pieces?
Miroslava: I think you can style anything to make it more original and funky, to make people look at you and think ‘Oh! I like the way she did that.’ [However,] the Oscar de la Renta for THE OUTNET pieces are so strong, they don’t need anything else.
How do you dress differently for different cities?
Miroslava: In Russia, you just need to warm up and not think about anything! London is more about ‘hipster’ style, while Paris is very classic, chic, elegant and sophisticated. New York is very cool and young, and I love to wear American designers while I’m there, such as Alexander Wang and Jason Wu. I also adore the uptown style of Oscar de la Renta, Michael Kors and Ralph Lauren.
What is your “street style strategy”?
Miroslava: I’m not a model and not everything looks good on me. When I go to shows, I wear something that I’m comfortable and confident in – something cool that I love and styled myself.
