Sunday Stamps | O(scar de la Renta)


These stamps were issued on 16 February 2017, to honour one of the world’s leading fashion designers for 50 years, Oscar de la Renta (1932-2014). The stamp set includes 11 images: an evocative black-and-white portrait of de la Renta and 10 details from some of his most exquisite gowns.

These stamps are big and have a special soft touch. I think they look wonderful in person, like on these envelopes sent by Phillip.


I have received different combinations of them (see the whole set here), on several postcards and letters, and still don't know which one I prefer...






I am adding this post for the letter O of Sunday Stamps-II.

  2. I like the added Edith Wharton and jewellery combination. Material design and stamps always work well.

    1. You can always combine an elegant dress with an elegant jewel, I guess.

  3. I confess that I have never heard of Oscar de la Renta but anyone would admire these designs.

  4. I am not really into fashion, but these stamps are fabulous! I love the subtle touch they have! The blue one is my favourite, most probably cos it is my favourite colour :)

    1. The touch is wonderful, almost fabric. Too difficult to choose a favourite among these...

  5. I would never have thought about these stamps for today. I can confirm that they look even better in person than they do in online scans.
