Oscar de la Renta Runway Accessories

It's not secret that I have an affinity for Oscar de la Renta and everything he does.  I am particularly interested by his accessories from his Spring 2013 collection.  The large, statement floral pieces remind me of decorations that I would find in an antique store, and this isn't a bad thing.  They are elegant, but quirky.  That seems to be the theme and motif that De la Renta created this season.  He contradicts himself with understated statements.  The cutouts are a supreme example of this.  In the nude, metallic heel shoe, he uses the cutouts as extreme subtlety.  In the white strappy, cuffed heel, the cutouts are in-your-face.

 I smile when I look at images from De la Renta's shows.  But, my bias fortunately doesn't affect my ability to determine good style and taste.
