Oscar De La Renta Vs Cathy Horyn
Just when we thought that New York Fashion Week was over and behind us, a verbal feud has broken out between designer Oscar de la Rentaand New York Times writer Cathy Horyn. While the most recent development occurred just this morning, it seems like this was a year in the making.
The bad blood might have started last year when Horyn left the designer off her list of must-see shows in New York, while younger brands likeAlexander Wang and Prabal Gurung were mentioned. De la Renta then gave Women’s Wear Daily his reaction:
“It bothers me because I love my industry, and I love fashion. I think fashion is something of beauty and it really makes me mad when someone writes about fashion in a bitter way.”
“Mr. de la Renta is far more a hot dog than an éminence grise of American fashion. He opened his lively show on Tuesday with a red latex pencil skirt, a sleek ivory wool pantsuit and dairymaid lace. The models’ hair was streaked with war paint, and midway along, after bead-quivering jackets and neon-bright skirts, he sent out white lace with black pencil-like scribbles. It was wonderfully cantankerous, a good bit of window-dressing for the gooey stuff that followed”
