Oscar de la Renta's Dominican Republic Boutique

posted on: Friday, 27 April 2012

A few months ago, the famous fashion designer Oscar de la Renta opened his first shop in his native Dominican Republic. “The inspiration came from a very small potting shed in the garden of our home here,” De la Renta says of the chic hexagonal emporium. For de la Renta both decor design and fashion design should be connected, and that's the rule he has followed in his new boutique store; his silver-plate bowls are washed with enamels as colorful as the blouses on display, and the Austro-Germanic-inspired armchair he created for Century Furniture complements a body-skimming caftan draping a mannequin. According to the famous designer, “there should be no difference in taste levels between the clothes you wear and the things you live with”. I couldn't agree more with this statement.
