Milkmaid braids at Oscar de la Renta, NYFW

The influences feeding into Oscar de la Renta’s Spring/Summer 2010 collection were many and various. Country tweeds and safari jackets found themselves alongside crisp white Broderie Anglaise ensembles, ruffled satin gowns, and even some exotic Egyptian-inspired looks. To top off the eclectic influences, models on the New York Fashion Week runway wore a hair trend that’s been going on for some time now: milkmaid braids.

The braids at de la Renta were interwoven with heavy fabric in bright country colours to compliment the collection.
