Oscar de la Renta VS. Cathy Horn

15 Sep

Just when we thought that New York Fashion Week was over and behind us, a verbal feud has broken out between designer Oscar de la Renta and New York Times writer Cathy Horyn. While the most recent development occurred just yesterday morning, it seems like this was a year in the making.

Last year:

The bad blood might have started last year when Horyn left the designer off her list of must-see shows in New York, while younger brands like Alexander Wang and Prabal Gurung were mentioned. De la Renta then gave Women’s Wear Daily his reaction:

“It bothers me because I love my industry, and I love fashion. I think fashion is something of beauty and it really makes me mad when someone writes about fashion in a bitter way.”

Fast forward to this season:

De la Renta showed his spring 2013 collection earlier this week, and Horyn gave it mixed reviews.

“Mr. de la Renta is far more a hot dog than an éminence grise of American fashion. He opened his lively show on Tuesday with a red latex pencil skirt, a sleek ivory wool pantsuit and dairymaid lace. The models’ hair was streaked with war paint, and midway along, after bead-quivering jackets and neon-bright skirts, he sent out white lace with black pencil-like scribbles. It was wonderfully cantankerous, a good bit of window-dressing for the gooey stuff that followed.”

Finally yesterday morning:

Oscar de la Renta fired back with an open letter to the writer in WWD

His most meaningfull quote is:“I respect and accept criticism because in many ways it does help us develop; I try to make my work better each time. What I do not accept is when criticism is personal. If you have the right to call me a hot dog why do I not have the right to call you a stale 3-day old hamburger? My advice to you is to abstain from personal criticism. Professionals criticize the clothes, not the people.”
