Legendary designer Oscar de la Renta is making his return to housewares. He's had consistent success on the runway, so the pieces in his tabletop and entertaining collection are sure to become must-haves in the homes and kitchens of the fashionable and interior design-savvy.
De la Renta is a native of the Dominican Republic, and it’s very evident that much of his inspiration for the collection came from his homeland. After pairing up with iconic interior designer Miles Redd, the duo painted the pieces, which range from entertaining accessories to tabletop additions, in shades of blue, representing the clear waters and beachy landscapes of the Caribbean island.
A blend of those same blues, along with silver accent figures and wooden servingware, highlights the artisan craftwork of the country as well as de la Renta’s detailed fashion lines.
Though well known for his property overlooking Manhattan’s Bryant Park where he maintains his own beehives and creates his own honey, the designer also has two stunning homes in Dominican Republic, one in Casa de Campo and the other in Punta Cana, a very popular destination for beach-loving travelers, so it's easy to see where the color palette and style for the collection comes from.
