De la Renta's label quickly came to represent casual luxury to society women—many of them friends of his then-wife, Françoise de Langlade, editor of French Vogue—among whom he effortlessly circulated. He first gained attention for his gypsy- and Russian-inspired collections in the late 1960s and early '70s, which suggested the cosmopolitan sophistication that would characterize his creative output over the following decades. These collections were always distinctly modern, yet they also possessed a romantic, feminine quality, reflecting his grounding in both American sportswear and European couture. Consistent elements of his vision include a vibrant colour palette, delicate silk prints, the use of ruffles, and soft silhouettes. He is perhaps best known for his evening wear and suits for women, which over the years became wardrobe staples for his faithful clientele.
