When a relatively new creative director has very large, very legendary shoes to fill, it usually takes them a while to find their groove. But seeing that Peter Copping was handpicked by the late, wonderful Oscar de la Renta himself as the heir apparent to the throne, it’s not all that much of a surprise that he stepped into them seemingly effortlessly. For his third collection for the famed fashion house, Copping selected a new location: the Prince George Ballroom. He’s creating his own stories, and this season, he’s also reference 1973’s famed Battle of Versailles. Peter is equally dedicated to paying homage to the original designer’s core vision, and Oscar's personal touches were everywhere, in the decadent crystal-embroidery embellishments, sparkling sequin bodices, splashes of opulent floral patterns, and delicate A-line lace-guipere skirts, to name a few.
