Oscar de la Renta is, without question, a living legend amongst New York fashion designers. And with good reason: this year marks his 50th anniversary toiling away in the city, creating some of the most sophisticated and elegant collections American fashion has to offer. The 80-year-old sat down with William Norwich for an interview in the new issue of New York magazine, and shared some of his well-earned wisdom and, yes, dished on some of the juicy stories he’s found himself involved in as of late.

Covering the sturm und drang (as Tim Gunn would say) of W’s masthead will, in our opinion, never get old. In the relatively uniform world of fashion magazines, it’s fun to see a little (or, in W’s case, a lot of) upheaval every now and again. To recap: W magazine has ousted out of the [...]
