F/W 2004 Oscar de la Renta Silk & Ostrich Feather Trim Gown

About

This is Oscar at his best and really showcases some of signature design details. When the twin of this dress walked the runway in the fall of 2004 Janet Ozzard of Vogue said of the collection: "Fabulous handiwork; rich, spicy colors; shapes cut to flatter. These are Oscar de la Renta’s calling cards, and his socialite-packed front row is testament to the designer’s mastery of the opulent-meets-elegant genre. For fall, de la Renta played up the curves. ... De la Renta’s evening looks, all garnished with Fred Leighton jewels, hit a series of luxurious highs. A Balenciaga-esque cascade of satin poured down the back of a strict, fitted satin sheath, while a dramatic black-tulle bustier was paired with a swinging beaded skirt. And for those with a fairy-tale ball in their future, any of the designer’s star-spangled tulle gowns will be just the ticket." The dress is made from a rich black silk taffeta and is almost sculptural in its execution. The neckline scoops at the front and scoops even low at the back to leave an expanse of skin. It curves over your torso in an hourglass shape that is fitted to below the hip. A wide panel of black feathers circles around you just below the butt and miraculously only highlights your curves rather then add unwanted ones. The skirt falls in a full bell below that, complete with built in underskirts that give it that fantastic curve and shape that you see. Another wide swath of feathers finish the bottom hem. As you move the feathers move and this is a stunning contrast to the otherwise structured shape. My favorite detail is the two pockets that sit on each hip. Each is finished with a sweet little silk satin bow that is absolutely, perfectly Oscar. It is magnificent and was well over $10,000 at retail new. Appears unworn. Excellent condition Fully lined in silk with extensive underskirts in the lower skirt as mentioned above. It closes with a back hidden set zipper. Tagged a US6. Appears unworn.

About Oscar De La Renta (Designer)

    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.
