Oscar de la Renta has just unveiled a new entertaining collection, created with The New York Botanical Garden,  that takes its inspiration from all things jardin, including trellis details, leaves, blooms and more.  By researching the archives of the Garden, ideas for the 15 piece collection arose from 18th and 19th Century studies and is perfect for those that appreciate the beauty that comes from growing and living with the bounty a spring garden has to offer. Available through Oscar de la Renta boutiques and
