Oscar de la Renta in Tortuga Bay

In his native Dominican Republic, where Oscar de la Renta and his wife, Annette, spend some of their downtime, he oversaw the construction of his first local shop, in the magical Tortuga Bay. “The inspiration came from a very small potting shed in the garden of our home here,” De la Renta says of the chic boutique hotel he codeveloped seven years ago at the Puntacana Resort & Club. With French doors facing the azure Caribbean, the pale coral structure shelters enticing ensembles for tropical revels—in addition to Oscar de la Renta Home mainstays such as Art Deco–inflected picture frames and nesting tables clad in shimmering mother-of-pearl. “There should be no difference in taste levels between the clothes you wear and the things you live with”, says the designer.
