It seems like there would be a fair amount of overlap between women who wear Oscar de la Renta and women who use fancy stationery, doesnâ€™t it? Or at least the group of women who use fancy stationery seems likely to include a number of women who aspire to wear Oscar de la Renta someday,Â so the designerâ€™s latest collaboration with Paperless Post seems like a pretty natural alliance.
If you want to invite a bunch of people to your next fancy dinner party, but feel like Evite isnâ€™t posh enough for you anymore, the Oscar de la Renta stationery through Paperless Post has some of the fanciest email missives around. The first collection includes 50 designs inspired by the designerâ€™s runway shows, and several of them are printed with patterns from de la Rentaâ€™s lace and fabric samples. There are options for regular stationery, â€śsave the dateâ€ť cards, general entertaining, and even wedding invitations.
â€śOscar de laÂ RentaÂ has an incredible archive of signature prints and exquisite laces that made them an ideal collaborator,â€ť said Paperless PostÂ chief executiveÂ JamesÂ Hirschfeld to The Hollywood Reporter.Â â€śThe brand embodies a lifestyle message that is elegant yet fun and perfect forÂ entertaining.â€ť
The samples on the site are from the desk of Miss Elizabeth Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy, which is adorable.
Theyâ€™re not just e-cards, either.Â The designs can be sent as electronic cards, but they can also be ordered in print runs and mailed traditionally, for those who balk at the idea of sending wedding invitations via email. (Grandmary does not accept your newfangled correspondence. If itâ€™s not engraved on cotton paper, youâ€™re out of the will.)
