1970s Oscar de la Renta Skirt and Cropped Top

 

 

 

 

 

Oscar de la Renta is at his best when his designs reflect his Latin roots, and here he does the Provenšal peasant look with a decidedly Cubana tilt. The print is a vivacious floral in red, French blue, aquamarine and white on a vivid banana yellow background. The cropped top ties at the midriff, and three-quarter length sleeves have an elasticized cuff which give it a flirty flamenco/salsa vibe.  The skirt is tiered with a ruffled floral border hem and has a zipper closure in back with a bar hook at the waistband. with a ruffled floral border. The waist of the skirt is 25", hip 38", length 31". The top is variable in size, the only static measurements being the shoulder 15", sleeve 19",  length (collar to hem in back) 19". This is from the Oscar de la Renta II Something Boutique, and both pieces are in excellent condition. $225
