The iconic fashion designer Oscar de la Renta is revamping his home design line with colors and images native to his home country the Dominican Republic. The line will include dinnerware, lamps, games, frames and other home décor items reflecting the designer’s life on the island.
For example, a favorite Latin American pastime, dominoes will be featured in the collection finished in leather.
The 80-year-old designer was born to a Dominican mother and Puerto Rican father in Santo Domingo. De la Renta maintains an estate on the Punta Cana Beach luxury resort and for prior decades entertained a Who’s Who in his Casa de Campo residence.
The home collection is expected to produce sales of $10 million over the next several years and will be produced in-house. The line compliments Oscar de la Renta’s furniture and fabric line. The Dominican designer has been designing for over 45 years and his clothing fashions remain the mainstay of his design empire.
