If you think Oscar de la Renta and Pablo Picasso sound like a match made in aesthetic heaven, you’re right. De la Renta showed his Resort 2012 collection in the company’s newly acquired, unrenovated future headquarters, and the raw edges and midtown New York views set a fitting background for an angular, Spanish-inspired collection full of the detail and intricacy for which the brand is revered.

We’re fortunate that we were given the opportunity to see this collection for ourselves at the show earlier this week; de la Renta’s work with pattern and texture deserves an up-close viewing to understand the full scope of the man’s brilliance. Thankfully, we’ve also get a full set of photos for your viewing pleasure after the jump.

    Pretty, pretty, pretty! I’m drawn to red, and O de la R’s reds are a feast for the eyes. The shoes in #s 52 and 53 are lovely and delicate for wedges. The heels swerve inward and make an elegant shoe that still looks very stable to walk in. The red, white and black combos are terrific here and don’t look so cliche as they do in other brands.

    Beautiful clothes and stunning photography. I am no longer a fan of ODR since he disrespected Mrs. Obama, but I still love looking at Vlad’s wonderful photographs.

    Red it so hot, but it’s been difficult to find the perfect red blouse that doesn’t have too much orange in it.
